Fathers of the 7th Ecumenical Council

This Sunday, the Church remembers the 350 holy Fathers of the Seventh Ecumenical Council under the holy Patriarch Tarasius (February 25).

The Synod of 787, the second to meet at Nicea, refuted the Iconoclast heresy during the reign of Empress Irene and her son Constantine VI.

The Council decreed that the veneration of icons was not idolatry (Exodus 20:4-5), because the honor shown to them is not directed to the wood or paint, but passes to the prototype (the person depicted). It also upheld the possibility of depicting Christ, Who became man and took flesh at His Incarnation. The Father, on the other hand, cannot be represented in His eternal nature, because “no man has seen God at any time” (John 1:18).

In Greek practice, the holy God-bearing Fathers of the Seventh Ecumenical Council are commorated on October 11 (if it is a Sunday), or on the Sunday which follows October 11. According to the Slavic MENAION, however, if the eleventh falls on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, the service is moved to the preceding Sunday.

October 20: Farewell Luncheon for Fr Andrew & Brenda

Fr Andrew and Brenda Jaye’s last Sunday with us will be October 20. They will be leaving to serve the parish in St Cloud, MN—the Holy Myrrhbearers Mission. We are planning a luncheon of thanksgiving for their many years of service to our Holy Trinity parish. We will miss them but those receiving them at the Mission church will be truly blessed! Please see Joanne Bergman or Mina Jacobs to find out what is still needed for the meal. A card will be available to sign in the narthex on Sunday.
