1 THE SOURCE October Issue # HOL HOLY TRINITY RINITY GREEK REEK ORTHODOX RTHODOX CATHEDRA CATHEDRAL THEDRAL CAMP HILL, ILL, PA Dearly Beloved, At this time of year when the kids are settled into their usual school routine, I encourage you to read the below interesting essay that puts into perspective the value of parenting, and the sacred role that it can be. I know that many of the readers, like myself, have already raised their children passed the school years. Please consider sharing this, however, with younger parents and others you know, who may otherwise be too busy to notice this. For some it will inspire, for others it might challenge or even provoke. For each, however, I pray that this article, submitted September 2013 by Father Michael Prevas, Proistamenos at Resurrection Greek Orthodox Church in Castro Valley, California, will be in some way insightful and helpful. In Christ Jesus our Lord, who grants us the seasons of our life, +Fr. Kosta Petrogeorge, Dean September is the time where schools and families resume their busy and often times hectic yearly schedules. As our children return to school, I ask you the following question, are you relieved that summer vacation is over? A few weeks ago, the Television Program Good Morning America ran an advertisement of a woman dancing to the song Celebration (by Kool & the Gang) as her children returned back to school. The woman, so relieved her children were returning to school, not only danced in the streets, which humiliated her children, but also partook of a glass of wine as the school bus drove away. During the interview, the panel of journalists laughed at this woman s creativity and expressed their own personal joy that summer break had finally concluded. In her excellent book Children in the Church Today Sister Magdalen makes mention that it is sad when children have the feeling that their parents are glad to have them out of the way again at school (pg. 44).
2 THE SOURCE OCTOBER 2013 Page 2 Having said this, I as a parent of four school aged children, ages 3 10, admit to the many challenges of raising of children and how quickly impatience or even anger can overwhelm the best of us. However we must be mindful that our children are one of, if not the greatest blessings gifted to a married couple by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Childbearing is often times very difficult, or simply not granted to very deserving families. Yet many of us, including television and social media, take our children for granted. Let me tell you another story. A few years ago, early in the morning, my cousin walked into her daughter s bedroom hoping to catch a glimpse of a most precious sight, a sleeping child. Watching her daughter resting peacefully, she gazed lovingly from the doorway hoping not wake her from what seemed like a very normal night s sleep. Standing silently and attentively, she noticed her daughter was abnormally still, even though sleeping. As she moved closer and softly touched her daughter s head, she experienced the single greatest tragedy in a parent s life, the death of her child. Why do I tell you this story? No one, even our children are promised or guaranteed to awake tomorrow morning. During his comments to the guests gathered at the funeral luncheon, my cousin s husband said, to all you parents, please do not ever be annoyed at your children talking too much in the back seat of your car, nor wish that summer break would end sooner than later so your children can be out of the house and you can be free at last. I only wish I could once again be annoyed by the pleasing sounds of my little girl. Treasure your children. Soon enough they will be off to college and your home, a once noisy and lively place will soon be all too quiet. So, in the meantime, talk with your children. Reinstate and reemphasize the importance of praying and sharing meals together, breakfast too! Make sure your children s sporting or social activities do not force you to choose whether or not to attend the Divine Liturgy on Sunday mornings. If they do, please be mindful of the example you re setting and how this will affect their love for the church and its priority in their lives. We spend much of our time instructing and teaching our children right from wrong, showing good manners, respecting adults and authority figures. Now don t get me wrong, these are valuable lessons, many of which will keep them safe and bring honor to your home. But we too as parents must take time and listen. Our children have pure hearts and out of them come many beautiful little pearls of wisdom. As the David the Psalmist says, Out of the mouths of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Psalm 8:2. Furthermore our Lord Jesus Christ reminds us that, Unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven, Matthew 18:3. As we begin the Academic year, please be mindful that September 1 also begins the Ecclesiastical New Year. Just as we hope our children will exhibit a renewed joy to attend their classes and be diligent in completing their assigned schoolwork, we too should reexamine our focus on the liturgical calendar of our Holy Church. As His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America appropriately stated in his encyclical for Ecclesiastical New Year, First, we must pray and commune with God. In addition, we must enter this year and greet each new day seeking and receiving the grace of God. As you see the school bus driving away, instead of enjoying a glass of wine, say a prayer that God protect your children, allow His Holy Angels to protect their minds and keep them pure. And above all, ask Him to return your children safely to your home so that you, as a family may give Him due praise and thanks for the many blessings you enjoy.

5 THE SOURCE OCTOBER 2013 Page 5 Dear Parishioners, PARISH COUNCIL To prepare for 2014, our parish needs to have elections for new parish council members. If you are interested in serving on the parish council and you have completed a pledge card by August 31, you are encouraged to fill out a nomination form and volunteer to run. The deadline for nominations is October 20th at the parish assembly. At the parish assembly the parishioners will approve the nomination for each candidate and also approve the persons who will oversee and run the elections. The elections will be held in November and the new parish council members will start serving in January. Each parish council member serves for three years. Please consider this opportunity to serve your church. The National Philoptochos Society has a wonderful event planned for October 12 in Pittsburgh, hosted by the Metropolis of Pittsburgh Philoptochos. The Children's Medical Fund Luncheon is a fund-raising event that benefits children directly who have medical needs. Please support this event with your donations by contacting Thana Ward. Also luncheon tickets can be purchased for those interested in attending. I want to remind you that Syllogos Neohoriton is celebrating its 95th Anniversary with a dinner dance at the Radisson Penn Harris on Sunday October 13. I encourage you to attend and enjoy the food, entertainment and fellowship. We are fortunate to have Christ Megoulas and Constantine Kokos who volunteer and devote valuable time to set up the blood drive. Please check the Source for the next blood drive and contribute your blood for this worthwhile cause. Give the Gift of Life. Christ and Constantine are also making plans for a certification class in CPR/AED. Please call the office if you like to be included in the upcoming class. I want to thank all our program leaders and participants. It is always a pleasure to see the church alive, now that summer is over and all the church programs are in progress. It is not too late to sign up for Sunday school, JOY, GOYA, Altar Boys and other organizations. As members of the community, sometimes we take for granted and overlook all the volunteers' hard work required to run all the programs in our church. Please accept our appreciation and keep on volunteering. Without you our church will not be blessed with all the programs. On behalf of the Parish Council I wish you a happy fall season.

U.S. POSTAGE PAID Harrisburg, PA Permit No ADVERTISING IN THE SOURCE In an effort to contain printing costs for monthly newsletters, many churches have turned to paid advertisements in their publications. Parish Council has agreed to adopt this funding source for our monthly publication. Doing this would help lessen and possibly erase the expense of publishing the Source. We now have availability for two pages of paid ads in our monthly Source. The ad price will represent a year of advertising or 11 issues as we combine the June and July Source into one issue. Ads are sold by the block. There will be room for 24 ads or blocks per page. You may purchase more than one block for increased space and presentation. The cost of one ad block is $125 per year, and subsequent blocks would be an additional $100 per block. For example, a business card ad would equal two blocks and would cost $225. Camera ready ads are appreciated but not required. Please help us promote this program. If you own or work for a business that may be interested in advertising in our Source which is sent out to over 600 families, please contact Mary in the church office. If you know of a business that may be a potential advertiser, please pass on a contact and phone number. Examples of businesses that may be interested in advertising could be Greek bands, importers, baptismal supplies/clothing stores, and jewelers specializing in crosses. Other possibilities could be lawyers, accountants, real estate agents, etc. The only ads we cannot accept are ones pertaining to credit cards, travel, or insurance. Please contact the church office as soon as possible if interested in this program.
