Welcome to Saint Herman's, Hudson, Ohio

This blog is a partial compilation of the messages, texts, readings, and prayers from our small 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. See our Parish web page:

 From "Thoughts for Each Day of the Year," St. Theophan the Recluse, Sunday of Holy Pentecost.

The economy of our salvation has been accomplished!  The operations of all the Persons of the Most Holy Trinity have henceforth come into effect to accomplish it.  That which God the Father willed, the Son of God has fulfilled in Himself, and the Holy Spirit has now descended in order to impart it to the faithful.  For our salvation is according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the Blood of Jesus Christ (1Pet 1:2).  For this reason we are baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, obliged to observe all things whatsoever He has commanded us (Mat 28:19-20).  Those who do not confess the Most Holy Trinity cannot participate in the saving action of Its Persons and thus receive salvation.  Glory to the Father adn to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, the Trinity one in essence and undivided, Who grants us to confess It!  O Father Almighty and Word and Spirit, one Nature united in three Persons, transcendent and most Divine!  Into You have we been baptized, and You shall we bless throughout all ages!
