APOSTLE FAST continues till Thursday, June 29. Let’s spend this sacred time of the Church year in humble fasting, intense prayer life, and performing works of Christian charity. This is also a suitable time to go to Confession for those, who receive Holy Communion regularly.
INDEPENDENCE DAY EXTRAVAGANZA was a success. The final numbers are being still calculated. Thank you to all who helped and made it happen. May God bless you for your sacrifice!

WHY GO TO CHURCH? Reason #1: Because we are made to worship: We are all spiritual beings in that we have a soul, we are all religious in that we show reverence, love, and devotion through ceremonial prayer to the things our soul considers sacred. To deny one or the other or both is to deny the very essence of who we are, as humans. We are made in the image and likeness of God. The first four commandments are related to the spiritual, religious worship of God. 1) I am God, don’t have any others; 2) No idols; 3) Do not use Lord’s name in vain; 4) Remember Sabbath and keep it holy. God knows us. He made us. If we do not worship the God of the Bible, the Father with His Son our Lord Jesus Christ, and His Holy Spirit, then we will worship something or someone else. That’s an idol. We go to Church to fulfill who we are, to do what we were made to do. Could anyone honestly say I am a student and not attend school?
