Orthodoxy Sunday

Dear Brothers and Sisters (Members, supporters, visitors),

Christ is in our midst!

On Sunday March 5, 2017, Orthodoxy Sunday, by the grace of God, and because of the beauty of our Church, we were asked to sponsor the first Lenten Vesper (evening prayer) of the year. Over 20 priests and deacons were present at this event. A number of altar servers participated as well. Around 300 Orthodox Christians gathered together for a time of prayer, worship and fellowship.

Following the service, we held a social event. Thanks to all of you who brought really good, wonderful, tasty Lenten food and sweets to welcome all Orthodox Christians
from all over Metro Detroit. A special thanks to Sandy Rochette,
Michelle Pargoff and Colleen Bayoff
who chaired this event on behalf of St. Clement Ohridski Church, and to everyone who helped make it a great success.

-- Father Antonie

 

March 19, 2017 - St Clement Orthodox Church - Veneration Of The Cross


CROSS VENERATION SUNDAY

"The Cross is the preserver of the whole universe, the Cross is the beauty of the Church, the Cross is the might of kings, the Cross is the confirmation of the faithful, the Cross is the glory of angels and the scourge of demons”

Sunday March 19th, 2017, (The 3rd Sunday of Lent)
 commemorated the Veneration of the Cross.
According to our Eastern Orthodox tradition there was
a procession through the church which included the
Altar boys and the Sunday School children.  

The Cross stands in the midst of the church in the middle
of Lenten season to remind us of Christ’s redemption
and to help us keep in mind the goal of our efforts
during the Lenten season.  It is an opportunity for us
to show great respect for Christ and the sacrifice that
was made so we could be saved.  

 

 

Thank you to Marilynn Johnson for donating flowers,
decorations and her time to decorate the cross
