Ζήτω η Ελλάδα! The 20th Detroit Greek Independence Day Parade was celebrated Sunday, April 10 with St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church of Ann Arbor in attendence!
The faculty of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology will offer spiritual guidance and instruction in various forms throughout the entire Paschal period, from the beginning of Lent until the feast of Pentecost. The first set of offerings will be a Lenten series entitled “My Soul, My Soul, Rise Up”: Lenten Reflections from Holy Cross. These brief video presentations will begin on Clean Monday and will continue every Monday until Holy Week. The first session, entitled “Grant Me to See”: Reflections on the Lenten Prayer of St. Ephraim, will be delivered on March 7 by Fr. George Parsenios, PhD, Dean of Holy Cross. All lectures will be made available on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and the Holy Cross website.
With new leadership for the Department of Religious Education comes a new initiative. The Department of Religious Education of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America is pleased to announce the launch of the Sunday Sermon Series.
Starting today, an easy-to-download sermon based on the upcoming Sunday Gospel will be available online. Every week a new sermon will be released until the Sunday Sermon Series accessible database has one for every Sunday of the ecclesiastical year. The Series will include both the Gospel readings and insights and analyses about them. They will provide inspirational material for sermons for clergy, as well as catechetical material for educators of Sunday School, Adult Education, and Bible Study.
The Sunday Sermon Series can be easily accessed on the Department of Religious Education website or by simply subscribing to the Religious Educators email list, both at: religioused.goarch.org. The Series will also be posted weekly on the Department’s new social media accounts — Instagram, Twitter, Facebook: @goarchDRE — so follow to stay up-to-date.
The Sunday Sermon Series logo is a golden color in honor of Saint John Chrysostom. The epithet Χρυσόστομος (Chrysostom) means "golden-mouthed" in Greek and denotes his renowned eloquence as a preacher.
