February 15: Men's Fellowship Breakfast

The men's fellowship breakfast will be this Saturday at 7:30 am at Archangel Michael Hall. Breakfast and coffee will be provided.

Sunday of the Prodigal Son

The Sunday after the Sunday of the Publican and the Pharisee is the Sunday of the Prodigal Son. This parable of God’s forgiveness calls us to “come to ourselves” as did the prodigal son, to see ourselves as being “in a far country” far from the Father’s house, and to make the journey of return to God. We are given every assurance by the Master that our heavenly Father will receive us with joy and gladness. We must only “arise and go,” confessing our self-inflicted and sinful separation from that “home” where we truly belong (Luke 15:11-24).

After the Polyeleion at Matins, we first hear the lenten hymn “By the Waters of Babylon.” It will be sung for the next two Sundays before Lent begins, and it serves to reinforce the theme of exile in today’s Gospel.


Food Shelf Reminder

The food shelf cupboard has become quite bare almost overnight! If you are out and about this week, consider purchasing some food to bring to share with our neighbors who visit the food shelf this weekend. We need everything that is listed in the guidelines, so please review them first. Thank you!
