SYNAXIS OF THE SAINTS

The Sunday following Pentecost is dedicated to All Saints, both those who are known to us, and those who are known only to God. There have been saints at all times, and they have come from every corner of the earth. They were Apostles, Martyrs, Prophets, Hierarchs, Monastics, and Righteous, yet all were perfected by the same Holy Spirit.

The Descent of the Holy Spirit makes it possible for us to rise above our fallen state and to attain sainthood, thereby fulfilling God's directive to "be holy, for I am holy" (Lev. 11:44, 1 Peter 1:16, etc.). Therefore, it is fitting to commemorate All Saints on the first Sunday after Pentecost.

This feast may have originated at an early date, perhaps as a celebration of all martyrs, then it was broadened to include all men and women who had borne witness to Christ by their virtuous lives, even if they did not shed their blood for Him.

Saint Peter of Damascus, in his "Fourth Stage of Contemplation" mentions five categories of saints: Apostles, Martyrs, Prophets, Hierarchs, and Monastic Saints. Saint Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain adds the "Righteous" to the categories.



GREAT AND HOLY COUNCIL

The Holy and Great Council takes place in Crete, June 18-27. Approximately 500 individuals will be part of this historic gathering, with a common desire to reinforce their relations and address contemporary spiritual and social challenges in the world. Preliminary documents and a history of Councils can be viewed online at: www.orthodoxcouncil.org/



SYRIAN AMERICAN FORUM

State Senator Richard Black of Virginia will discuss his recent trip to Syria TONIGHT (June 26th) from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at Saint John of Damascus Church in Dedham.



THEOPHANY SCHOOL EVENT

The rescheduled date for our 16th Annual Benefit Evening is Saturday, October 15, 2016 at Saint Demetrios Orthodox Church in Weston.



SUMMER TIME

Even though life seems to move at a slower pace during the summer months -- the worship of God is still paramount in the life of Orthodox Christians. We hope to see everyone here during June, July and August. If you are traveling and need help finding a parish, there are many resources available. For those at Saint George in the coming weeks, there are many openings for donating holy bread and hosting a coffee hour (and simple is good.) Please sign up in the book in the parish hall today.



Saint George Capital Campaign

Since kicking off our capital campaign on February first, we have brought in over $50,000 in pledges and donations. Not only that, we have generated many exciting conversations around the parish and around the country. We are closing this portion of our campaign at the end of this month and will then evaluate our design and financing. If you need a pledge card, they are available in the parish hall. As always, don't hesitate to ask your question of a Parish Council or Building Committee member.
