Γεώργιο Σπανό, μας γνωστοποιείται ότι: Από την 1 η Ιουνίου 2015, διορίζεται ως Ιερατικός Προϊστάμενος του Ελληνορθοδόξου Καθεδρικού Ναού Αγίας Τριάδος ο Πατήρ Μιχαήλ Βαρβαρέλης. Ο Πατήρ Μιχαήλ έχει μακρά και διακεκριμένη σταδιοδρομία στην υπηρεσία της Ελληνορθοδόξου Εκκλησίας μας διαρκείας άνω των τριών δεκαετιών, η οποία συμπεριλαμβάνει θέσεις σε ενορίες της περιφερειακής μας Μητρόπολης όπως στο Canonsburg και Βηθλεέμ (Bethlehem). Η πιό πρόσφατη θέση του ήταν με τον Ελληνορθόδοξο Καθεδρικό Ναό εις Σάρλοττ (Charlotte), Βόρειο Καρολίνα (North Carolina), όπου υπηρέτησε με μεγάλη αγάπη και προσοχή προς το ποίμνιό του. Ο Πατήρ Μιχαήλ είναι αφοσιωμένος στην υπηρεσία του προς την ενορία μας ως αντιπρόσωπος του Σεβασμιωτάτου Μητροπολίτου Σάββα, και ο Σεβασμιώτατος εκφράζει την βεβαιότητά του ότι η ανάληψη των καθηκόντων από τον Πάτερ Μιχαήλ είναι προς ώφελος της ενορίας μας, καθώς και προς ώφελος των συνυπηρετούντων ιερέων όπως ο βοηθός ιερεύς Πατήρ Μάρκος Λιχτενστάϊν, και ο πρώην και λίαν αγαπημένος μας Ιερατικός μας Προϊστάμενος Πατήρ Αντώνιος Δημητρίου. Ο Σεβασμιώτατος Μητροπολίτης Σάββας επίσημα θα ευλογήσει τον διορισμό και την αρχή της θητείας του Πατρός Μιχαήλ στην ενορία και κοινότητά μας κατά την διάρκεια της επίσκεψής του στον Καθεδρικό μας Ναό την Κυριακή, 14 Ιουνίου Christ is risen! Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, As you see in the Metropolitan s letter, Fr. George Daskalakis will be serving here a little while longer before leaving for his beloved home in Greece for the summer with his Presv. Evangelia. I hope you will take advantage of his brief stay with us to renew your acquaintance and absorb some of his wisdom and experience. Festival preparations are well under way, too. We will need a lot of volunteer effort to make the festival a success. It would be a big help to the festival organizers if you would sign up ahead of the festival for whatever time you can allocate. Thank-you. A few thoughts about Holy Unction: Traditionally, at least in the last 100 years or so, the Sacrament of Holy Unction has been offered as part of the afternoon/evening of Holy Wednesday. Historically, Holy Unction was done as needed by the community and was NOT part of Holy Week. This is reflected in how the altar Gospel book readings are arranged: The Holy Week Gospel readings are in one section immediately after Lent, and the Unction Gospel readings are in the section of Gospels for various occasions that don t fall on regularly specified days (like Weddings or Baptisms which are also scheduled as needed). (continued next page)
4 THE SOURCE MAY 2015 Page 4 Unction can be offered at any time it is needed for the healing of the faithful. The letter of St. James 5:14 prescribes anointing by the clergy for the healing of the sick. Unction is not just for Holy Week. Unction is a sacrament (comparable to the Eucharist) that is available to any Orthodox Christian in good standing with the church at any time of need. Normally, Unction is distributed by the clergy, like the Eucharist. It is not something to be taken home and distributed by the laity. Having written this, I do not know how the highly irregular practice of giving out cotton swabs (Q-tips ) with Unction started. Maybe people did not know that we clergy are willing and eager to bring unction to the sick. Hopefully, now that we know better, we can go back to the tradition of the priest bringing Unction to the sick and not give out cotton swabs of Unction on Holy Wednesday. If you or someone you know should be anointed with the oil of Unction, please let the clergy know and we will be glad to bring it to you. +Fr. Mark PARISH ETIQUETTE Lipstick *Do not wear lipstick while taking Holy Communion, or when kissing the cross, an icon, the priest s or bishop s hand, or any sacred object.

Christ is Risen Your Church needs you! We need your presence at our services and in the sacramental life of the church We need your help with our various ministries and programs We need your help at our Festival, remembering that our Festival is NOT just 3 days in May. and yes, your Church needs your Financial support. In the chart I prepare each month, if you took 2007 as a beginning and grew stewardship by just 3% per year, we would be over $300,000 annually ended at $221,827 which is almost $40,000 BELOW our 2007 level. We can do better. If 500 families participate at an average of $100/month, we would be 100% selfsufficient. Imagine what we could do for God s Glory if 100% of our Festival proceeds could go to ministries, charities, endowments and other needs. I look forward to seeing you at our Festival.
