MESSAGE FROM FR. NICOLAS

Dear Parishioners,

The Kingdom of God which is to come has also come with power. He has come in many places, into many hearts, into many families, in an almost unnoticeable way. The Kingdom is within us. The Kingdom is Christ Himself present in our midst during the spiritual sacrifice of the Holy Eucharist. As we say during the Divine Liturgy: “The Lamb of God is apportioned and distributed; apportioned, but not divided; ever eaten, yet never consumed but sanctifying those who partake.”

The Kingdom is unity!

God bless you,

Fr. Nicolas


IN TIMES OF ILLNESS

"Come, O blessed of my father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was sick and you visited me." (Matt. 25:31-46).

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.

SUMMER DONATION 2017: As many of us spend our summer months with family and friends in far off locales, the work and the ministry of Saint Spyridon in Washington Heights continues. In order to keep our doors open for the summer months, today we are asking you to help support us; not only through prayers and love, but also financially. Any donation that you make will help ensure that the work of our historic parish can continue through the summer months. We hope and pray that you have a restful and enjoyable summer vacation. May God continually bless each of you and your families!
