Resurrectional Apolytikion. Mode 2
Εὐφραινέσθω τὰ οὐράνια, ἀγαλλιάσθω τὰ
ἐπίγεια, ὅτι ἐποίησε κράτος, ἐν βραχίονι αὐτοῦ,
ὁ Κύριος, ἐπάτησε τῷ θανάτῳ τὸν θάνατον,
πρωτότοκος τῶν νεκρῶν ἐγένετο, ἐκ κοιλίας
ᾅδου ἐρρύσατο ἡμᾶς, καὶ παρέσχε τῷ κόσμῳ
τὸ μέγα ἔλεος.
When You descended unto death, O Lord who
yourself are immortal Life, then did You mortify
Hades by the lightning flash of Your Divinity.
Also when You raised the dead from the
netherworld, all the Powers of the heavens were
crying out: O Giver of life, Christ our God, glory
be to You.
Apolytikion for the Theotokos
Aπολυτίκιον της Θεοτόκου
Θεοτόκε ἀειπάρθενε, τῶν ἀνθρώπων ἡ σκέπη,
Ἐσθῆτα καὶ Ζώνην τοῦ ἀχράντου σου
σώματος, κραταιὰν τῇ πόλει σου περιβολὴν
ἐδωρήσω, τῷ ἀσπόρῳ τόκῳ σου ἄφθαρτα
διαμείναντα· ἐπὶ σοὶ γὰρ καὶ φύσις
καινοτομεῖται καὶ χρόνος· διὸ δυσωποῦμέν σε,
εἰρήνην τῇ οἰκουμένῃ δωρήσασθαι, καὶ ταῖς
ψυχαῖς ἡμῶν τὸ μέγα ἔλεος.
Ever-virgin Theotokos, the shelter of mankind,
you have given to your City as a protective wall
the clothing and garment that you wore on your
immaculate body. By your seedless childbirth,
they have remained incorrupt. For in you both
nature and time are made novel. Therefore we
implore you, grant peace to your commonwealth,
and great mercy to our souls.
Apolytikion of Sts. Constantine & Helen
Aπολυτίκιον Αγ. Κωνσταντίνου & Ελένης
Τοῦ Σταυροῦ σου τὸν τύπον ἐν οὐρανῷ
θεασάμενος, καὶ ὡς ὁ Παῦλος τὴν κλήσιν οὐκ
ἐξ ἀνθρώπων δεξάμενος, ὁ ἐν βασιλεύσιν,
Ἀπόστολός σου Κύριε, Βασιλεύουσαν πόλιν τὴ
χειρί σου παρέθετο ἣν περίσωζε διὰ παντὸς ἐν
εἰρήνῃ, πρεσβείαις τῆς Θεοτόκου, μόνε
Having seen the image of Thy Cross in
Heaven, and like Paul, having received the call
not from men, Thine apostle among kings
entrusted the commonwealth to Thy hand, O
Lord. Keep us always in peace, by the
intercessions of the Theotokos, O only Friend
of man.
Apolytikion of St. Andrew
Aπολυτίκιον Αγ. Ανδρέα
Ὡς τῶν Ἀποστόλων Πρωτόκλητος, καὶ τοῦ
Κορυφαίου αὐτάδελφος, τὸν Δεσπότην τῶν
ὅλων Ἀνδρέα ἱκέτευε, εἰρήνην τὴ οἰκουμένη

As first of the Apostles to be called, O
Andrew, brother of him (Peter) who was
foremost, beseech the Master of all to grant the
world peace and our souls great mercy.

Λοιπόν η πρώτη διαθήκη, που εσυμβολίζετο από την σκηνήν του μαρτυρίου, είχε λατρευτικάς
διατάξεις, όπως επίσης και το επίγειον θυσιαστήριον. 2 Διότι είχε κατασκευασθή το πρώτον
τμήμα της σκηνής, όπου υπήρχε η επτάφωτος χρυσή λυχνία και η τράπεζα και οι άρτοι, τους
οποίους απέθεταν επάνω εις αυτήν ως προσφοράν προς τον Θεόν. Και αυτό το πρώτον τμήμα
της σκηνής, που εκλείετο προς την αυλήν με το πρώτον παραπέτασμα, ελέγετο Αγια. 3 Εν
συνεχεία δε προς τα Αγια υπήρχε δεύτερον εσωτερικόν καταπέτασμα, έπειτα από το οποίον
ήτο το τμήμα της σκηνής, που ελέγετο Αγια Αγίων. 4 Αυτά είχαν χρυσόν θυμιατήριον και την
κιβωτόν της διαθήκης, η οποία ήτο ολόγυρα σκεπασμένη από παντού με χρυσόν. Μεσα εις
αυτήν υπήρχεν η χρυσή στάμνα, που περιείχε το μάννα, από εκείνο που ο Θεός έδιδεν στους
Εβραίους εν τη ερήμω, και η ράβδος του Ααρών, που δια θαύματος Θεού είχε βλαστήσει, και
αι πλάκες της Διαθήκης, επάνω εις τας οποίας ήτο χαραγμένος ο δεκάλογος. 5 Επάνω δε από
την κιβωτόν υπήρχον δύο χρυσά Χερουβίμ, συμβολίζοντα την δόξαν του Θεού, και τα οποία
έρριπταν την σκιαν των πτερύγων των και εκάλυπταν το επάνω μέρος της κιβωτού, που
ελέγετο ιλαστήριον. Δι' αυτά όμως τώρα δεν είναι καιρός να ομιλήσωμεν ιδιαιτέρως. 6 Ενώ,
λοιπόν αυτά έτσι είχαν κατασκευασθή, εις μεν το πρώτον μέρος της σκηνής, δηλαδή εις τα
Αγια, εισήρχοντο πάντοτε οι ιερείς, δια να τελούν τας διαφόρους λατρευτικάς τελετάς. 7 Εις δε
το δεύτερον τμήμα της σκηνής, εις τα Αγια των Αγίων, εισήρχετο μία φορά το έτος, κατά την
επίσημον ημέραν του εξιλασμού, μόνος ο αρχιερεύς και αυτός όχι χωρίς να είναι
εφωδιασμένος με το αίμα της θυσίας, το οποίον επρόσφερε δια την εξιλέωσιν του εαυτού του
και των αμαρτημάτων, τα οποία από άγνοιαν είχε διαπράξει ο λαός.
The reading is from St. Paul's Letter to the Hebrews. 9:1-7
Brethren, the first covenant had regulations for worship and an earthly sanctuary. For a tent
was prepared, the outer one, in which were the lamp stand and the table and the bread of the
Presence; it is called the Holy Place. Behind the second curtain stood a tent called the Holy of
Holies, having the golden altar of incense and the ark of the covenant covered on all sides with
gold, which contained a golden urn holding the manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the
tables of the covenant; above it were the cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat. Of
these things we cannot now speak in detail. These preparations having thus been made, the
priests go continually into the outer tent, performing their ritual duties; but into the second only
the high priest goes, and he but once a year, and not without taking blood which he offers for
himself and for the errors of the people.
Ἐκ τοῦ κατὰ Ματθαῖον IΘ’ 16-26
Και ιδού ένας προσήλθε εις αυτόν και του είπε· “διδάσκαλε αγαθέ, τι αγαθόν πρέπει να κάμω, δια να
έχω ζωήν αιώνιον;” 17 Ο δε Ιησούς του είπε· “τι με λέγεις αγαθόν, αφού με νομίζεις απλούν άνθρωπον;
Κανείς δεν είναι απόλυτα αγαθός, ει μη μόνον ένας, ο Θεός. Εάν δε θέλης να εισέλθης εις την αιώνιον
ζωήν, τήρησε τας εντολάς”. 18 Λεγει εις αυτόν· “ποίας;” Ο δε Ιησούς του είπε·“τας γνωστάς, δηλαδή το
να μη φονεύσης, να μη μοιχεύσης, να μη κλέψης, να μη ψευδομαρτυρήσης, 19 τίμα τον πατέρα σου και
την μητέρα σου. Και να αγαπήσης τον πλησίον σου, όπως τον ευατόν σου”. 20 Λεγει εις αυτόν ο νέος
με κάποιαν προχειρότητα· “όλα αυτά τα έχω τηρήσει από την νεανική μου ηλικίαν· τι μου λείπει
ακόμη δια να γίνω άξιος της βασιλείας των ουρανών;” 21 Είπε εις αυτόν ο Ιησούς· “Εάν θέλης να είσαι
τέλειος, πήγαινε, πώλησε τα υπάρχοντά σου, μοίρασέ τα στους πτωχούς και θα αποκτήσης θησαυρόν
στον ουρανόν, και έλα ακολούθησέ με”. 22 Αλλ' όταν ο νέος ήκουσε αυτόν τον λόγον, έφυγε
λυπημένος, διότι είχε πολλά κτήματα και η καρδιά του ήταν κολλημένη εις αυτά. 23 Ο δε Ιησούς είπε
στους μαθητάς του· “αληθινά σας λέγω ότι πολύ δύσκολα θα εισέλθη πλούσιος εις την βασιλείαν των
ουρανών. 24 Και πάλιν σας λέγω, είναι ευκολώτερον να περάση γκαμήλα από την τρύπα που ανοίγει η
βελόνι, παρά πλούσιος να εισέλθη εις την βασιλείαν του Θεού”. 25 Οταν άκουσαν οι μαθηταί τα λόγια
αυτά, έπεσαν εις μεγάλην έκπληξιν και με κάποια αποκαρδίωσιν είπαν· “ποιός τάχα ημπορεί να σωθή;”
Ο δε Ιησούς τους εκύτταξε κατάματα και είπεν· “η σωτηρία είναι δια τους ανθρώπους έργον
αδύνατον, αλλά στον Θεόν όλα είναι δυνατά, άρα και η σωτηρία των πλουσίων, όπως και όλων
εκείνων οι οποίοι κατά κάποιον τρόπον ανακατεύονται με χρήματα και κτήματα. Αρκεί να έχουν την
διάθεσιν της αυταπαρνήσεως και θυσίας”.
The Gospel of Matthew 19:16-26
At that time, a young man came up to Jesus, kneeling and saying, "Good Teacher, what good
deed must I do, to have eternal life?" And he said to him, "Why do you call me good? One
there is who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments." He said to him,
"Which?" And Jesus said, "You shall not kill, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not
steal, You shall not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother, and You shall love your
neighbor as yourself." The young man said to him, "All these I have observed; what do I still
lack?" Jesus said to him, "If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the
poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me." When the young man heard
this he went away sorrowful; for he had great possessions. And Jesus said to his disciples,
"Truly, I say to you, it will be hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell
you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the
kingdom of God." When the disciples heard this they were greatly astonished, saying, "Who
then can be saved?" But Jesus looked at them and said to them, "With men this is impossible,
but with God all things are possible."
Κατάθεση Τιμίας Ζώνης της Θεοτόκου - 31 Αυγούστου
Η ανακομιδή της τίμιας Ζώνης της Θεοτόκου, άλλοι λένε ότι έγινε από
το βασιλιά Αρκάδιο και άλλοι από το γιο του Θεοδόσιο τον Β'. Η
μεταφορά έγινε από την Ιερουσαλήμ στην Κωνσταντινούπολη και την
τοποθέτησαν σε μια χρυσή θήκη, που ονομάσθηκε αγία Σωρός. Όταν
πέρασαν 410 χρόνια, ο βασιλιάς Λέων ο Σοφός άνοιξε την αγία αυτή
Σωρό για τη βασίλισσα σύζυγο του Ζωή, που την διακατείχε πνεύμα
ακάθαρτο. Όταν λοιπόν άνοιξε την αγία Σωρό, βρήκε την τίμια Ζώνη της
Θεοτόκου να ακτινοβολεί υπερφυσικά. Και είχε μια χρυσή βούλα, που
φανέρωνε το χρόνο και την ήμερα που μεταφέρθηκε στην
Κωνσταντινούπολη. Αφού λοιπόν την προσκύνησαν, ο Πατριάρχης
άπλωσε την τιμία Ζώνη επάνω στη βασίλισσα, και αμέσως αυτή
ελευθερώθηκε από το δαιμόνιο. Όποτε όλοι δόξασαν το Σωτήρα Χριστό
και ευχαρίστησαν την πανάχραντη Μητέρα Του, η οποία είναι για τους
πιστούς φρουρός, φύλαξ, προστάτις, καταφυγή, βοηθός, σκέπη, σε κάθε καιρό και τόπο,
ήμερα και νύκτα.
Στη συνέχεια η Αγία Ζώνη τεμαχίστηκε και τεμάχιά της μεταφέρθηκαν σε διάφορους ναούς
της Κωνσταντινούπολης. Μετά την άλωση της Πόλης από τούς Σταυροφόρους το 1204 μ.Χ.,
κάποια τεμάχια αρπάχτηκαν από τους βάρβαρους και απολίτιστους κατακτητές και
μεταφέρθηκαν στη Δύση. Ένα μέρος όμως διασώθηκε και παρέμεινε στην Κωνσταντινούπολη
και μετά την απελευθέρωση της Πόλης από τον Μιχαήλ Η' Παλαιολόγο. Φυλασσόταν στον
ιερό ναό της Θεοτόκου των Βλαχερνών. Η τελευταία αναφορά για το άγιο λείψανο είναι ενός
ανώνυμου Ρώσου προσκυνητή στην Κωνσταντινούπολη μεταξύ του 1424 και 1453 μ.Χ.
Μετά την άλωση της Κωνσταντινούπολης από τούς Τούρκους το 1453 μ.Χ., είναι άγνωστο τι
απέγινε το υπόλοιπο μέρος της Αγίας Ζώνης στη συνέχεια. Έτσι το μοναδικό σωζόμενο τμήμα
είναι αυτό που φυλάσσεται στην Ιερά Μονή Βατοπαιδίου· με εξαιρετικά περιπετειώδη τρόπο
Ο Άγιος Κωνσταντίνος είχε κατασκευάσει έναν χρυσό σταυρό για να τον προστατεύει στις
εκστρατείες. Στη μέση του σταυρού είχε τοποθετηθεί τεμάχιο Τιμίου Ξύλου· ο σταυρός έφερε
επίσης θήκες με άγια λείψανα Μαρτύρων, και ένα τεμάχιο της Τιμίας Ζώνης. Όλοι οι
βυζαντινοί αυτοκράτορες έπαιρναν αυτόν τον σταυρό στις εκστρατείες. Το ίδιο έπραξε και ο
αυτοκράτορας Ισαάκιος Β Ἄγγελος (1185-1195) σε μία εκστρατεία εναντίον του ηγεμόνα των
Βουλγάρων Ασάν. Νικήθηκε όμως και μέσα στον πανικό ένας ιερέας τον πέταξε στο ποτάμι
για να μην τον βεβηλώσουν οι εχθροί. Μετά από μερικές μέρες όμως οι Βούλγαροι τον
Οι Βούλγαροι ηγεμόνες μιμούμενοι τούς Βυζαντινούς
αυτοκράτορες έπαιρναν μαζί τους στις εκστρατείες το
σταυρό. Σε μία μάχη όμως εναντίον των Σέρβων ο
βουλγαρικός στρατός νικήθηκε από τον Σέρβο ηγεμόνα
Λάζαρο (1371-1389). Ο Λάζαρος αργότερα δώρισε το
σταυρό του Αγίου Κωνσταντίνου στην Ιερά Μονή
Βατοπαιδίου μαζί με το τεμάχιο της Τιμίας Ζώνης.
Οι Άγιοι Πατέρες της Ιεράς Μονής διασώζουν και μία παράδοση σύμφωνα με την οποία η
Τιμία Ζώνη της Θεοτόκου αφιερώθηκε στην Ιερά Μονή Βατοπαιδίου από τον αυτοκράτορα
Ιωάννη ΣΤ Καντακουζηνό (1341-1354), ο οποίος στη συνέχεια παραιτήθηκε από το αξίωμα,
εκάρη μοναχός με το όνομα Ιωάσαφ και μόνασε στην Ιερά Μονή Βατοπαιδίου.
Τα θαύματα που πραγματοποίησε και πραγματοποιεί η Τιμία Ζώνη είναι πολλά. Βοηθά ειδικά
τις στείρες γυναίκες να αποκτήσουν παιδί. Αν ζητήσουν με ευλάβεια τη βοήθειά της
Παναγίας, τούς δίδεται τεμάχιο κορδέλας που έχει ευλογηθεί στην λειψανοθήκη της Αγίας
Ζώνης· αν έχουν πίστη, καθίστανται έγκυες.
Ecclesiastical New Year - September 1
For the maintenance of their armed forces, the Roman emperors
decreed that their subjects in every district should be taxed
every year. This same decree was reissued every fifteen years,
since the Roman soldiers were obliged to serve for fifteen
years. At the end of each fifteen-year period, an assessment was
made of what economic changes had taken place, and a new tax
was decreed, which was to be paid over the span of the fifteen
years. This imperial decree, which was issued before the season
of winter, was named Indictio, that is, Definiton, or Order. This
name was adopted by the emperors in Constantinople also. At
other times, the latter also used the term Epinemisis, that is, Distribution (Dianome). It is
commonly held that Saint Constantine the Great introduced the Indiction decrees in A.D.
312, after he beheld the sign of the Cross in heaven and vanquished Maxentius and was
proclaimed Emperor in the West. Some, however (and this seems more likely), ascribe
the institution of the Indiction to Augustus Caesar, three years before the birth of Christ.
Those who hold this view offer as proof the papal bull issued in A.D. 781 which is dated
thus: Anno IV, Indictionis LIII -that is, the fourth year of the fifty-third Indiction. From
this, we can deduce the aforementioned year (3 B.C.) by multiplying the fifty-two
complete Indictions by the number of years in each (15), and adding the three years of
the fifty-third Indiction. There are three types of Indictions: 1) That which was
introduced in the West, and which is called Imperial, or Caesarean, or Constantinian, and
which begins on the 24th of September; 2) The so-called Papal Indiction, which begins
on the 1st of January; and 3) The Constantinopolitan, which was adopted by the
Patriarchs of that city after the fall of the Eastern Empire in 1453. This Indiction is
indicated in their own hand on the decrees they issue, without the numeration of the
fifteen years. This Indiction begins on the 1st of September and is observed with special
ceremony in the Church. Since the completion of each year takes place, as it were, with
the harvest and gathering of the crops into storehouses, and we begin anew from
henceforth the sowing of seed in the earth for the production of future crops, September
is considered the beginning of the New Year. The Church also keeps festival this day,
beseeching God for fair weather, seasonable rains, and an abundance of the fruits of the
earth. The Holy Scriptures (Lev. 23:24-5 and Num. 29:1-2) also testify that the people of
Israel celebrated the feast of the Blowing of the Trumpets on this day, offering hymns of
thanksgiving. In addition to all the aforesaid, on this feast we also commemorate our
Saviour's entry into the synagogue in Nazareth, where He was given the book of the
Prophet Esaias to read, and He opened it and found the place where it is written, "The
Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, for which cause He hath anointed Me..." (Luke 4:16 -30).
It should be noted that to the present day, the Church has always celebrated the beginning
of the New Year on September 1. This was the custom in Constantinople until its fall in
1453 and in Russia until the reign of Peter I. September 1 is still festively celebrated as
the New Year at the Patriarchate of Constantinople; among the Jews also the New Year,
although reckoned according to a moveable calendar, usually falls in September. The
service of the Menaion for January 1 is for our Lord's Circumcision and for the memorial
of Saint Basil the Great, without any mention of its being the beginning of a new year.
Apolytikion in the Second Tone
Creator of the universe, setting times and seasons by Your sole authority, bless the cycle
of the year of Your grace, O Lord, guarding our rulers and Your nation in peace, at the
intercession of the Theotokos, and save us.
Kontakion in the Fourth Tone
You who created all things in Your infinite wisdom, and set the times by Your own
authority, grant Your Christian people victories. Blessing our comings and goings
throughout this year, guide our works according to Your divine will.

There was a virtuous hermit who frequently prayed to
God, and who received revelations of many divine
mysteries. One day he set out from his hermitage to travel
to a distant region. Along the way, he met another man
who was journeying in the same direction. This individual
was actually an angel, but the hermit did not realize this
and assumed he was a regular human being. As they
journeyed together, along the path they encountered a
dead horse. The hermit covered his nose and held his breath; the angel did not.
A short while later, they came across a dead calf. The hermit again covered his
nose and held his breath; the angel did not. Not long after, they found a dead
dog in their path. The hermit covered his nose and held his breath; the angel did
nothing. Eventually they approached a certain village where they crossed paths
with a beautiful young lady, who was wearing extravagant clothing and ornate
jewelry, and taking great pride in her appearance. The angel then immediately
covered his nose. When the hermit witnessed this, he stopped and asked, “Who
are you? Are you an angel, a human being, or a demon? … We passed by a dead
horse that stunk, but you did not cover your nose. We also passed by the dead
calf and dog, and I did not see you cover your nose. Now that we passed by
such a beautiful young lady you decided to cover your nose and hold your
breath?” Then the angel made himself visible to the hermit and replied,
“Nothing smells as bad as pride does to God.” Having said this, the angel
disappeared. The hermit then returned back to his hut and began weeping for his
sins, beseeching God to protect him henceforth from the devil’s traps, and not
allow him to fall into the sin of pride and thus lose his soul.
—by St. Kosmas Aitolos
O Lord our God and Creator, who has honored us men and women with Your
own image; who has taught Your elect, so that most wise are they who give
heed to Your teaching; who reveals wisdom unto babes; who has imparted Your
teaching unto Solomon and unto all who have sought Your wisdom: Open the
hearts, the minds, and the lips of these Your servants, that they may receive the
power of the law, and successfully apprehend the useful precepts which shall be
taught them, to the glory of Your All-Holy Name, to the profit and building up
of Your Holy Church, and that they may understand Your good and perfect will.
Deliver them from every hostile oppression; preserve them in Orthodoxy and
the Faith, and in all uprightness and purity all the days of their life, that they
may advance in wisdom, and in the fulfilling of Your commandments: that,
being thus prepared, they may glorify Your All-Holy Name, and become heirs
of Your Kingdom. For You are God mighty in mercy, and gracious in strength;
and unto You is due glory, to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
now and ever and to the ages of ages, Amen.
The faith is shared/taught to our children primarily IN THE HOME by the
family members. Secondarily, the true classroom to experience and therefore
learn our faith outside of the family setting is the church building, (Ο Ιερος
Ναος). The format for teaching experientially is the Divine Liturgy, all of the
Mysteria and services that are provided us by the fathers of the church.
This year all of our youth will attend and participate in the Divine Liturgy sitting together with
their family members. The Divine Liturgy, the center of our existence as a parish, is where
EVERYONE comes together to be fed from the same Holy Chalice. At the end of the Liturgy,
the youth will come forward receive their antidoron and proceed next door to the church hall
for a 20-30 minute lesson. Each year there will be a man theme that will banner what we are
teaching our youth. This year’s theme is, “I (we) believe!…..No I (we) really do.” All of our youth
will learn by rote the Creed and its meaning. This will be the one and only focus of our
Catechetical Ministry, teaching our youth what they as Greek Orthodox Christians believe.
In preparing for our new Ecclesiastical Year, the following catechists responded to God calling
them to assist the spiritual father of the community, helping him share our faith and traditions
with our beautiful children. They are not “teachers” but God fearing Greek Orthodox
Christians who practice their faith therefore modeling what it means to be a person living in
Christ. They are equipped to transmit the traditions of our faith that have been passed down
orally and in written form by the church.

HOPE/JOY, Middle School Ministry (Jr. GOYA) and Sr. High Ministry (Sr. GOYA), all
are under the umbrella of our Catechism Ministry. The Church is not the YMCA, a sports
organization or secular center for cultural enhancement. The focus of Youth Ministry in
our community is not basketball and Greek Dancing, even though we do play basketball
as part of our curriculum and we do have an entire Greek Dance Ministry.
Youth Ministry in our community is about bringing our youth closer to Christ. "Sunday
School" is not the only media used to teach our faith. Remember, our faith is caught not
taught. We offer the following to enrich the spiritual journey of our youth:
Again, those who are advisors are called by God to care for His children by assisting the
spiritual father of the community. Before each meeting, Basketball or Greek Dance practice,
the youth are engaged in prayer and a critical reflection on our theme, "I (we) believe.....No, I
(we) really do!"
Each Catechist/Youth Advisor agrees to the following;
•• That he/she is an Orthodox Christian and member in good standing of a canonical
Orthodox Church,
•• That he/she is interested in offering their Time and Talent to this specific Diakonia of
sharing the message of the Gospel with youth and their families,
•• That he/she has a positive and enthusiastic attitude toward Youth Diakonia,
•• That he/she is dedicated and willing to commit at least 4 hours per week to Catechetical/
Youth Ministry,
•• That he/she must display good communications skills,
•• That he/she fully understands that their religious, moral and social duties are to apply the
tenets of the Orthodox faith to their life and activities, to seek personal growth, to attend the
Divine Liturgy and other services of worship faithfully on Sundays and holy days, to keep the
rules and fasts of the Orthodox tradition, to receive frequently the sacraments of Holy
Confession and Holy Communion, to train and teach the young according to the faith and
spirit of Orthodoxy , to respect the clergy and guide the youth to a relationship with the
spiritual father(s) of the parish, the ecclesiastical authority, and all governing bodies of the
Church, to be obedient in matters of faith and ecclesiastical order, and to cooperate in every
way towards the welfare and prosperity of the Parish and the success of its sacred mission.
