FEAST OF THE DORMITION TO BE OBSERVED
TUESDAY EVENING: LITURGY 6:30 PM, AUGUST 14

This is one of the most important feast days of the Church year. As all the Apostles (except Thomas, who arrived a week late) gathered around Mary, our Lord's beloved Mother, as she was leaving this life and celebrated her funeral, we too gather to express our love for her who was truly the Mother of God, the Mother of our Salvation.

The Apostles laid Mary to rest in a tomb in Gethsemane. Our Holy Land pilgrimage group venerated Mary's tomb last October. Here you see the tomb from the front, with a shrine atop it, and from the back, where we see the actual hewn stone of her empty tomb.

At tonight's Liturgy sermon, Fr. Nabil will discuss the relationship between the Dormition, our weeping icons, and sickness.

God often reminds us of His presence, especially in the midst of our difficulties: “And the LORD, he it is that does go before you; he will be with you, he will not fail you, neither forsake you: fear not, neither be dismayed” (Deuteronomy 31.8, cf. Hebrews 13.5).

One of the ways he reminds us is through myrrh-streaming icons (weeping icons), and we have had two of them in our own church, and several more in the homes of parishioners. This makes sense, because we stand before these icons, in church or in our prayer corners at home, and the Lord shows us through them that He hears our prayers and the intercessions of our friends, His Mother and the saints. Most often, it is icons of the Theotokos that weep.

At Liturgy next Sunday, August 19, we will also share more about the icon that you see here, on the front of the shrine above the Virgin's tomb.

St. George Orthodox Christian Church

This inspiring video, "In the Footsteps of St. Herman," was produced by Craig DiRienzo, who was a parishioner at St. George (and who produced a video tour of our church), and it includes a few scenes with our Central Indiana Mission Team to Alaska from this past June.

St. Herman Theological Seminary
Our new introductory video "In the Footsteps of St. Herman" was created by a professional filmmaker Craig DiRienzo. It was first shown to the public in July 2018 at the 19th All American Council of the Orthodox Church in America. Thank you, Craig, for devoting your time and skill to help the Seminary!

OUR FAMILY IS COMING TO VISIT JULY 22
Please help us welcome, personally and individually, Father Bill Bartz and our brothers and sisters from Holy Trinity, who will be worshipping with us at St. George Sunday, July 22. Father Bill will preach.

We are looking forward to this reunion, which we have maintained annually, every July, since we spent six months together, at Holy Trinity, five years ago, when St. George was under construction. Last year, Holy Trinity received us back, as we all worshipped there one Sunday.

This photo was from two years ago, when Holy Trinity came here, and Father Lucas Christensen had newly arrived as a deacon. (If you look carefully, you see Dn. Lucas preaching from the ambon.)

Brunch and fellowship will follow the Liturgy in our hall, in the lower level.

During the brunch, you will be able to sign up for both the upcoming Holy Trinity and St. George Festivals. Members of our 2017 Holy Land Pilgrimage group will gather for a reunion as well.
