Welcome to Saint Herman's, Hudson, Ohio

This blog is a partial compilation of the messages, texts, readings, and prayers from our small mission community. We pray that it will be used by our own people, to their edification. And if you happen by and are inclined to read, give the glory to God!

The blog title, "Will He Find Faith on the Earth?" is from Luke 18:8, the "Parable of the Persistent Widow." It overlays the icon of the Last Judgment, an historical event detailed in Matthew Chapter 25, for which we wait as we pray in the Nicean Creed.

We serve the Holy Orthodox cycle of services in contemporary English. Under the omophorion of His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph of the Bulgarian Patriarchal Diocese of the USA, Canada and Australia, we worship at 5107 Darrow Road in Hudson, Ohio (44236). If you are in the area, please join us for worship!

Regular services include:
Sunday Divine Liturgy 10AM (Sept 1 - May 31)
930AM (June 1 - Aug 31)
Vespers each Saturday 6PM

We pray that you might join us for as many of these services as possible!

Interesting Article

Christ is Ascended!

I've become a rather voracious reader of a number of blog sites which I consider to be fruitful to my own spiritual growth.

I came across this one today:

http://roadsfromemmaus.org/

It's published by Father Andrew Stephen Damick, pastor of Saint Paul Orthodox Christian Church of Emmaus, PA.  He's the author of "Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy:  Exploring Belief Systems Through the Lens of the Ancient Christian Faith" published by Conciliar Press.

The article in question is titled, "Evangelicals at the Eucharist", and can be found from a link on this page.  It's a fascinating article on how non-Orthodox are ascribing greater meaning (but as yet undefined in terms of dogma) to participation in the Eucharist.

Let me encourage you to go, to read, and to contemplate.

In our ascended Lord,
Father Basil
