John 3:13-17 – “No one has ascended into heaven but he who descended from heaven, the Son of man. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.” For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. He who believes in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

By its elevation the Cross is like an appeal to the whole creation.
We adore the blessed passion of Christ our God
who was suspended on it.
By this Cross, Christ destroyed the one who had destroyed us.
In His great goodness, He brought us back to life after we had been dead.
In His mercy He clothed us with beauty
and made us worthy of heaven.
Therefore, we exalt His Name with great rejoicing
and glorify His infinite condescension. GREAT VESPERS

October 1, 2017 we will celebrate the feast day of the Protection of the Mother of God. Our church is name of the Mother of God. We will have a praznyk in our parish. This year we are fortunate to have the feast day fall on a Sunday which gives us an opportunity to celebrate together. After the divine liturgy probably at 10:15 am we will have a luncheon in our church hall beginning at 11:45. Please call the rectory or just place a note on your weekly envelope if you are able to attend. We are also looking for donations for the theme basket raffle for our parish. At this time the parishes in the Buffalo area will have the annual drawing for the Good Samaritan fund. All parishioners and friends are invited.
