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! We are open, and we welcome inside the Church all visitors who follow state COVID guidelines.

Advent 2020 - Day 1

 First Day of the Advent Fast, 2020:

We hope to post each weekday a message from the Holy Fathers related to the Incarnation of our Lord, for in this season of preparation for His Nativity, it is beneficial for us to consider the meaning of His Incarnation!

"It is proper for us to begin the treatment of this subject by speaking of the creation of the universe, and of God as its Creator, that so it may be duly perceived that the renewal of creation has been the work of the self-same Word Who made it at the beginning. For it will appear not inconsonant for the Father to have wrought its salvation in Him by Whose means He made it." ("On the Incarnation of the Word," St. Athanasius, 1.Introductory, 4)
