Eparchial Appeal

The Annual Eparchial Appeal is underway!  You should have received a letter and donation instructions from Bishop Olmsted and the Eparchy of Phoenix.  You can use the instructions you received from the bishop, or you can visit our parish’s donation page here:  https://ephx.org/st-marys-eparchial-appeal/

We are working to support our Eparchy as a community, so please prayerful discern what you can give, and I know we will meet and exceed our goal (we get a large percentage back) if we have full participation. 

Thank you for your generosity!

St. Mary of Egypt

As children of God who understand well the words of St. Paul when he says “I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate” (Romans 7:15), it is sometimes hard to identify with the stories of saints who seemed to live near perfect lives, at least after their conversion.  This is why this Sunday’s saint is so refreshing.  Mary of Egypt was a sex (among other things) addict who, even after her Hollywood-esque conversion and life of repentance, still struggled daily with temptations.  Her joy in the midst of her struggle is a luminous beacon in a dark world.  You can find the story of her life (she was born in the 4th century) at https://www.newadvent.org/cathen/09763a.htm

Venerable Mary of Egypt, intercede before the throne of Christ our God to save our souls!!

 

“Your faith has saved you. Go in peace.” Jesus met the sinful woman, and her deep faith and love led to profound forgiveness. Have you received His love? Would you like to share it by dedicating your life to Him in a special manner as a monastic or through a life in holy orders?
