The Cowardice of Christians : Christians have become cowards. We are a shame to Christianity and to Christ. We Christians have abdicated our responsibility to bear witness to the truth to God’s world. Even though there is a large number of Christians in America, we behave like sheep, we are humiliated by politicians, the media, government, and educators. When we speak in public, we are asked not to speak of God, and we are ridiculed when we express the truths that God has revealed. The public institutions we support through our taxes are often openly hostile to Christ and His Message.Fr. Theodore Daoud

The parish is a local community of the Church having at its head a duly appointed priest and consisting of Orthodox Christians who live in accordance with the teachings of the Orthodox Church, comply with the discipline and rules of the Church, and regularly support their parish. Being subordinate to the Diocesan Authority, it is a component part of the Diocese.
We have been called by our Lord for a sacred mission, to share the Gospel of truth and to be witnesses of His love. As He said to His disciples, He says to each of us, ‘You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit”,(John 15:16) When we recognize that we are chosen, and we follow His will and go to all in need of His Grace, we will bear great and enduring fruit in the lives of others.
Our mission in this world and the fruit of our witness of love of Christ are made possible by the transformation of our own lives; a transformation made possible through our faith and communion with Him. In addition, as He has chosen and appointed us to have an abundant life in Him, He also sends us to bear fruit in others. When we go and share the love of God through worship, teaching and preaching , and special missions and ministries, we will see the fruit of healing, peace, hope, and life produced in the lives of people around us and throughout the world.
