Wednesdays in June

Because both Father Nathan and Father Michael have an unusually complicated month of June, we will take a break from Wednesday evening Divine Liturgies and fire-pit socials.  We will resume the first week of July. 

Legacy Council

It is very important to me that I continue learning about the history of St. Mary’s, and listen to the thoughts of those who have been part of this parish for longer than I have.  If you have been coming to St. Mary’s regularly for more than 10 years, please join me for a listening session at 12pm on Sunday, July 10th.  Thanks in advance!  Love, Father Michael

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: Chirdon, Clemens, Crans, Koman-Keogh, Michnya, Patzwahl, Theisen, Wiggins, P. Zimmerman, and W. Zimmerman

The Ascension, Pentecost, and God’s Reign in Your Life

The ascension directly relates to the outpouring of the Spirit, as the Gospel tells us this Sunday. Ephesians 4:8 further testifies, “This is why it says: ‘When he ascended on high, he took many captives and gave gifts to his people.”’ It is because Jesus was given all power, seated on the throne, that He is able to rule the world through the power of His mystical body. This reign, in particular, relates to the reign of God in the heart, through the Holy Spirit (Luke 17:20-21). So it is that Christ now rules through the church and through each believer. This implies that each believer has to will the kingdom of God for the world, for the goodness of God, which is also the “likeness”, is restored to the believer in rebirth of the Spirit, and is only attained through volition. Thus, it may be said that the practical reality of the reign of Christ is given into our hands to fulfill. How much of God’s kingdom is in your life and in the life of others who are with you in this life? 

-Fr. Nathan Symeon 

 “Whoever follows me will not walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.” The Holy Spirit is our light of life. The Church is strengthened by those servants filled with the Spirit, whose life of prayer and service brings light and life to the world. Is the Holy Spirit guiding you to this life as a priest, deacon, monk or nun? Call the Vocations Office at 206-329-9219 or email: vocations@ephx.org
