THE FOURTH SUNDAY OF GREAT LENT

On the Fourth Sunday of Holy Lent the Orthodox Church commemorates our Righteous Father John Climacus. He is called Climacus due to his authorship of the great spiritual work The Ladder of Divine Ascent. His commemoration is designated by the Church on one of the Sundays of Lent as his life and writings affirm him as a supreme bearer and proponent of Christian asceticism. The ascetic example of this great Saint of the Church inspires us in our Lenten journey..... Read more...

CATHEDRAL RCA FAMILY WINTER CAMP 2017

The theme for Family Winter Camp, which took place March 10-12, 2017, was “Now You See It: God Reveals Himself Through Creation,” and this year camping families really got to see some new and interesting things! Friday evening, the time families previously gathered to put the children on a bus for a 6:00 p.m. departure, got a new look and became an opportunity for families to gather and relax for fellowship, snacks and refreshments, basketball, water balloon toss, even a version of Family Feud, before enjoying a full dinner on the patio topped with s'mores over a fire pit! Following a prayer service in the church, it was time to load the bus for a much more comfortable departure at 7:45 with a few hours of fun, food, and fellowship already under our belts!...

Lenten Prayer of
Saint Ephraim


O Lord, and Master
of my Life,
Grant me not
the Spirit of Laziness,
Lust of Power,
or Idle Talk;

But Grant rather,
the Spirit Chastity,
Humility, Patience,
and Love to Your servant!

Yes, O Lord and King,
Grant me to see
my own sins, and
not to judge others,
for You are Blessed
forever! Amen!
