Dear friends in Christ,
Christ is Born! Glorify Him!
We had a joyous celebration of the Liturgy of the Holy Eucharist for the Feast of the Nativity of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ at Holy Cross Orthodox Church. All of the members and friends of our parish, both near and far, were in my thoughts and prayers at the altar of God.
May God grant you a joyous Christmas and a blessed Christmas season. The celebration of Christmas will continue this Sunday. Matins is at 9:15 AM, followed by the Liturgy of the Holy Eucharist (Holy Mass) at 10:00 AM. Holy Cross is a Western Rite parish of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia.
"Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel" (Is. 7:14). "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace" (Is. 9:6). O come, let us adore Him!
