So many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death… For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection – Romans 6:3
Four children were baptized and three adults were received into the Church by Chrismation on Holy Saturday, May 8.

Come receive the light from the Light that never sets, and glorify Christ who is risen from the dead
April 27 -May 5, 2013
The Orthodox Holy Week and Pascha services set before us a rich feast of Christian experience that no seeker of God should miss. The four Gospels devote more space to the week before our Lord’s death than all the rest of His life and teaching. Beginning with the Raising of Lazarus, the Orthodox services give us each day scriptures, hymns, and liturgical actions that enable us experience these saving events as realities in our time. Make plans to join us for these.
Let us fast with a fast pleasing to the Lord. This is the true fast: the casting off of evil, the bridling of the tongue, the cutting off of anger, the cessation of lusts, evil talking, lies and cursing. The stopping of these is the fast true and acceptable.

The Lenten Prayer of St. Ephrem the Syrian
O Lord and Master of my life
Take from me the spirit of sloth, despair, lust of power and idle talk.
But grant rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love to Thy servant.
Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own transgressions and not to judge my brother,
For blessed art Thou unto ages of ages. Amen.

On January 6, Orthodox Churches celebrate the Baptism of the Lord, the event that marks the inauguration of our Lord’s ministry in the Gospels. It is an image of Our Lord’s descent from heaven to earth and even to death to redeem us and our world. The three Orthodox churches in the Jackson area celebrate this each year by blessing the waters of the Ross Barnett Reservoir and plunging a cross into it.
Participants were clergy and people from Holy Trinity and St. John the Theologian Greek Orthodox Church, Jackson, St. Peter Orthodox Church, Madison, and Holy Resurrection, Clinton.
We were blessed this year with a beautiful sunny warm day and the sky and water and land and birds celebrated the descent of the Lord into the world. Carl Boschert of Holy Trinity swam to retrieve the Cross. Afterwards we had dinner and fellowship together at a nearby restaurant.
