Paschal Appeal 2017

We are in the midst of Holy and Great Lent, and soon by the Grace of God, we will be celebrating Holy Pascha.  This feast of feasts celebrates the life, death and resurrection of our Savior.

               We celebrate Our Lord's life within the path that we choose to walk.  As we hear in John's Gospel, “I am the light of the world.  He who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”  From the moment we are baptized, we all have the light within us, yet, how we impart this light to others, is our own choice!

 Christ's death is celebrated; for through his death as a criminal upon the cross, we are able to inherit eternal life.  As he mourned in his life, we mourn in ours, as he was frustrated and felt pain, so do we!  Jesus' humanity is our humanity, our Lord's pain is our pain; for this is the only way in which we can mortally connect to our savior. 

 Our Lord's resurrection is the only pathway that we have for our own, as we hear in Saint John's gospel when Christ is speaking to Martha, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die he shall live.  And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.”  Jesus is life, and life eternal!

 Each year as worldly cares pull us away from cultivating a prosperous spiritual life, we pray that we can count on your support, not only with monetary donations, but also increasing the body of the Church by worshiping with us.  Our Ecclesia is at a critical point and we need your support.  Please, give what you can and celebrate with us!

 God Bless you for your support, and may you and your families be renewed during the physical and spiritual journey of Great and Holy Lent. 

Christ is Risen!  Truly He is Risen!  Hristos Anesti!  Alithos Anesti!

The community of Saint John's Greek Orthodox Church is located on 77 Montauk Highway in Blue Point NY.  St John's was the first Christian Orthodox community established in Suffolk county in 1940.  Through the Grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the dedication, of countless people St John's has evolved from a community of 40 families to several hundred.  With Love, Humility and Hard Work we continue the work of our forefathers to Spread the Good News and to expand our Faith, our Church and our community.
