MESSAGE

Beloved Friends and Parishioners of Saint Spyridon,

Χριστός Ανέστη! Christ is Risen!

When our Lord Jesus Christ came at midday to the city which is also called Sychar (John 4:5), He was wearied from the journey and the heat, and He sat down at a well. After a little while the Samaritan woman mentioned in today's Gospel passage came to draw water. As she conversed at some length with the Lord and heard from Him secret things concerning herself, she believed in Him; through her many other Samaritans also believed.

The Samaritan woman came to the well without any spiritual purpose; she came, as she came daily, to fetch water - and she met Christ. Each of us may meet our God at any turn in our life, when we are about our most homely tasks, if our hearts are turned in the right direction, if we are prepared to receive a message and to listen.

May you and your loved ones share in the Love, Peace and Joy of this Holy Pascha.

In our Risen Lord,

Fr. Nicolas

When a member of our Parish is ill and has been hospitalized or may be recuperating at home, the immediate family of the ill person should contact Father Nicolas at (212) 795-5870. It is beneficial to both the body and the soul when our priest prays for us when we are healthy or ill.
