CHRIST IS RISEN!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

To all faithful Parishioners of our St. Archangel Michael Serbian Orthodox Church, we greet you on this most joyful Christian feast of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ with faith and anticipation for the resurrection of the whole world from these days of temptation. May the Paschal holidays be to everyone for their salvation and spiritual growth, so that we may in Christian love, ourselves witness the Risen Lord Jesus Christ. We greet you with our traditional Easter greeting:

Christ is Risen – Indeed He is Risen!
Hristos Voskrese – Vaistinu Voskrese!

I know that this is a rather difficult time that is affecting everyone in the world, but I encourage you during this time to stay strong in your faith and personal relationship with God through prayer, reading of Holy Scripture, your fasting observances and your loving service to your family. Remember St. Paul's words to the Colossians, "let the peace of Christ control your hearts," and if there is any way that we can help you or you would like us to pray for you for any need, please reach out to us through e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call our parish office at 408-867-4876 and leave a message.

In Risen Lord yours,
Fr. Slobodan

 It is with a heavy heart that we inform you, our parishioners, that the cancellation of all parish gatherings and services will extend through Easter Sunday and still indefinitely into Bright Week and beyond. Specifically, all celebrations of Holy Week - including Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday - must take place without the physical presence of a congregation and cannot be rescheduled or postponed. We will have LIVE stream (link will be forwarded to you later), so that you can listen to the Word of God and unite with one another in prayer from home.

As we approach Holy Week, it might be especially hard for us Orthodox Christians to accept some of these restrictions suddenly placed on our rich, inherently communal activities of joint prayer and solemn observation, leading into the resurrectional joyous celebration. However, mankind has rebounded from much greater trials and tribulations, and there should be no doubt that - with God's help and with our fervent prayers and good works - this shall happen again. In this spirit, you are invited to make an Easter donation in support of the Church by clicking below.

UPDATE TO ALL CLERGY AND FAITHFUL REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS, COVID-19

As America faces this unprecedented global Coronavirus, Covid-19, and committed to providing guidance during this crisis and fulfilling our common duty to ensure the safety of everyone, we are providing this update to our clergy.



 Bishop Maxim sends special coronavirus message April 8, 2020

A person can never stand still at any point. Every spiritual attainment is the beginning of a new journey. Life is one continuous progress. And when you attain to knowledge and virtue, you have to leave, to go beyond these attainments. You cannot get drunk if you do not drink wine. You cannot catch fire if you do not approach the fire and become wholly incandescent. The presence of the Spirit, "who neither begins nor ceases," is evident in the expression of the face. It is the whole psychosomatic substance of man, full of an awe born of gratitude and timidity before the inexplicable condescension of God who becomes man. It suffers. "And through suffering, what is mortal puts on the majesty of incorruption." (Elder Vasileios of Iveron)

Christmas Greetings from Bishop Maxim

By the Grace of God Orthodox Bishop of Western America
Grace, Peace, and Mercy from the God-Child Christ the Savior


My dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,

On the sacred day of the Nativity and Holy Theophany, we celebrate the greatest Offerings presented to humankind, the gift of the Lord Himself and the gift of eternal life. God the Father gave His Son, and the Son gave Himself so that we might be restored to the life and communion for which we were created. 

As we bow in reverence and thanksgiving to the Source of Life, let us offer all our being freely for His Glory, sharing in the life and peace in the Church which exists as a constant Theophany.

As we await once again the Coming of the Sun of Righteousness, joyfully proclaiming 'Come o Lord', I pray that infinite grace of God illumines you with the pure peace of Christ Who was born on this day for our salvation. 

May the incarnate Word of God, born in the cave and laid in a manger, be with you and those you love, as you walk throughout the New Year of 2019 by the intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos and all the Saints.

CHRIST IS BORN!
May the New Year of our Lord 2019 Be Blessed!


In the New Born Christ-Child, our Savior,
Bishop of Western America MAXIM

Милошћу Божијом Православни Епископ Западноамерички
Благодат, мир и милост Богомладенца Христа

Драга браћо и сестре у Господу,
У овај свештени дан Божића и Богојављења, прослављамо највећи Принос дат човечанству, дар Самога Господа и дар Вечнога живота. Бог Отац је даровао Сина Љубљенога, а Син је Себе принео да бисмо ми били васпостављени у живот и заједницу ради које смо и створени.


Поклањајући се благодарно Источнику Живота, принесимо слободно бића своја Његовој Слави, причешћујући се животом и миром у Цркви која је трајно Богојављење.

И док изнова ишчекујемо Синце Правде, радосно кличући Дођи, Господе!, молимо се да Вас безгранична милост Божија обасја Христовим миром Који је рођен у овај дан ради нашега спасења.

Да Оваплоћени Логос Божији, рођен у пећини и положен у јаслама, буде свагда са Вама и вашим вољенима, док ходите кроз Нову 2019. годину Благости Господње, молитвама Пресвете Богородице и свих Светих.


ХРИСТОС СЕ РОДИ!
Благословена Нова 2019. година!


У Богомладенцу Христу,
Епископ Западноамерички Максим
