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:

Thought for the Day

 Let us humble ourselves, and the Lord will grant us to know

the power of the Jesus Prayer!

Learn how to have Christ-like humility, and the Lord will

grant you to taste the sweetness of prayer.

And if you want to achieve pure prayer, become humble,

exercise temperance, confess sincerely,

and the prayer will love to swell in you.

Become obedient, submit yourself with a sincere conscience

to all authorities, and be content with all things;

then your mind will be cleansed from vain thoughts.

Remember that the Lord sees you, and be careful,

lest you sadden your brother with something - do not condemn him, 

and do not sadden him even with a single glance.

Then the Holy Spirit will love you,

and He will help you in all things.

St. Silouan the Athonite
