Bishop ANTHONY'S Pastoral Letter for Pentecost, 2018

May 27, 2018
Great Feast of the Descent of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost

Beloved Clergy and Laity of the Diocese of Toledo and the Midwest:

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Today we proclaim with immense joy we have seen the True Light and have received the Heavenly Spirit for with the presence of the Spirit is the fulfillment of Christ’s promise and the completion of hope. For, the Holy Spirit provides all things. 

As we meditate upon the mystery of this Great Feast, let us focus on the intimacy of the union of the three-person Godhead in the undivided Holy Trinity. As the hymnographer explains, “the Father timelessly hath begotten the Son, equal to Him in eternity and the throne; and the Holy Spirit was in the Father, glorified with the Son, one Might, one Substance, one Godhead.”

Elinor Bourjaily College Scholarship Application

Gail Malaniak of St. Matthew the Evangelist Orthodox Church writes:

In 2018, the Elinor Bourjaily College Scholarship Application is being sent digitally to all parishes, and then forwarded to individual college students in each parish.

Due to our church fire, it would be best for the students to submit their completed applications digitally as well. However, a P.O. Box is included on the forms if they prefer to send them through the U.S. Postal service. All information for submitting the applications is on the enclosed forms.

Thank you for your help and I pray you have a Blessed Lenten Season. Please keep our parish in your prayers. May Elinor's memory be eternal!
