Sermon: Maundy Thursday Institution of the Holy Eucharist by Jesus Christ

Sermon:Maundy Thursday Institution of the Holy Eucharist by Jesus Christ With the Lord’s Supper we celebrate the commemoration of the Institution of the Holy Eucharist “on this night in which our Lord and Saviour was betrayed.” This is a remarkable gift from God, but before we go further… We have been reading for a week of the Passion of our Lord. And those of you that participated in the Stations of the Cross, you have followed the account of that dreadful event, every Friday Evening during the Lenten Season, as this event ends with our Lord being put into the [...]

Every Good Friday Longinus retires to his cell in the monastery of Caesarea in Cappadocia and lives over again the events of the first Good Friday, events in which he took so prominent a part as the centurion in charge of the execution party. Today we share his mediation with [...]

Stations of the cross (1-5)

“Stations of the Cross” From the earliest times, Christians flocked to the Holy Land to visit the places sanctified by the events in our Lord’s earthly life. Especially popular was the pilgrimage along the path our Lord took on the first Good Friday. This pilgrimage was made with great devotion, the procession stopping (or making "stations") for prayer and meditation at the various traditional points where special events took place.

Passion Sunday Homily

Homily for Passion Sunday. On Passion Sunday we will once again be focusing on edification of spiritual growth (Homily)  during the Lenten season.  Discussing the theological virtues as a means of measuring our growth...are we getting better?  As well, focus will be discussing the words from the sermon "He was" and "I am."  These words if understood should drive our desire to Faith, Hope, and Charity.  10:30 am service will be live streamed.  Blessings, Fr. Michael
