Communion of the Apostles
Communion of the Apostles
Communion of the Apostles
It is always helpful to remind ourselves of how we are practicing our Orthodox Faith. At the heart of that "practice" is our preparation for, and reception of, the Eucharist.  Therefore, I have attached a document dealing with our preparation, so that it be in a "worthy manner."  This article goes into some depth in explaining the meaning and purpose behind preparing to receive Holy Communion.   These are meant to be guidelines that assist in creating a "eucharistic discipline" rather than an air-tight set of "rules" that are meant to be legalistically adhered to.
Also, I am attaching a reminder about our liturgical etiquette or discipline while in church. I am certain that this can be helpful to our new members, inquirers and others. A certain liturgical discipline has nothing to do with an empty formalism or legalism. It is about respecting the sacred space in which we worship as a community.
Please contact me with any questions...

In Christ,
