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 prayerfully 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!

Thank you to those who have contributed: Clemens, Crans, Michnya, Patzwahl, Theisen, P. Zimmerman, and W. Zimmerman

Living Our Life for Christ

The Samaritan woman marks the point of gentile inclusion in the message that Jesus is life itself and His life is offered to all. Have you considered being a missionary or supporting the world of missions? If this is an interest to you, talk with your pastor about it. God has given us the opportunity to participate in His marvelous plan for the world. Practical advice: We focus today on our children having good paying jobs and not on them being bringers of the Gospel. This sets them up to never realize their potential vocation in Christ. When my daughters graduate from High school, I will ask them to wait a year before entering college. First, I will give them an icon, so their Saint can help them to discern. Second, I will ask them to spend some time discerning their vocations. Third, I will ask them to go on a short-term mission. Fourth, I will ask them to spend time in a monastery. Please consider your children in the movement of Jesus, in Christianity. If financial resources are a concern, please talk with your pastor. I believe our church is ready to support these endeavors. Our children are not only ours, but God’s first, and they also belong to the family God has given them here, at the Proto-Cathedral of St. Mary. Let us therefore bear each other burdens (Gal. 6:2) for the sake of the Gospel. 

-Fr. Nathan Symeon

 

“We have heard for ourselves and we know that this is indeed the Savior of the world, the Christ.” The saving love of Christ quenched the thirst of the Samaritan woman. He wants all to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. Are you open to bringing that saving love to the world by becoming a priest, deacon, monk or nun? Contact the Vocations Office at 206-329-9219 or email: vocations@ephx.org
