Archimandrite Gerasim: Members one of another–“We, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another” (Romans 12:5)

Our greatest asset in our pastoral and evangelical work is the Church to which we belong: the Church of Christ, which is the Body of Christ. Being members of the One Body of Christ makes us members one of another. As we “put on Christ” in Baptism, we become members one of another.  We will provide some sketches of what the Church is in order to challenge ourselves to present our faith to our friends, neighbors, and the larger community that surrounds our parishes. The welcoming church family should also include those with a disabled child (lifelong caregiver), those with chronic and acute (sometimes fatal) illnesses, those who do not feel welcome in the Church (includes cradle Orthodox and converts), and those who feel alienated in other ways. We will examine both failures and successes in the mission of the Church in the 21st century in the task of welcoming our brothers and sisters in Christ into our midst.

V. Rev. Anthony Karbo: “But whosoever will be great…” (Matthew 20:26): Attributes of a “great” parish family!

We shall look to Christ as the model in both word and deed of “greatness”, and how such “greatness” is understood in the writings of the Saints, both old and new. Then we shall apply this understanding to our relationships with one another as Brother and Sister in the parish family, as well our witness to the world around us. Specifically, I will strive to reference both word and deed of Christ as the model of greatness and apply His attributes to the parish family.

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Faithful of the Diocese of the South,

 

Christ is in our midst!

 

On March 4 and 5, 2016, with the blessing of His Beatitude, Metropolitan TIKHON, we will re-inter the late Archbishop Dmitri in the new Memorial Chapel at St Seraphim Cathedral in Dallas. The services will coincide with the Saturday for the Commemoration of the Reposed that precedes the Sunday of the Last Judgment.

 

On Friday afternoon the body of Archbishop Dmitri will be brought from Restland Cemetery to be greeted at St Seraphim Cathedral by clergy and faithful. His Beatitude, Metropolitan TIKHON will preside. The new coffin in which the Archbishop will be placed will be brought into the Memorial Chapel above the prepared crypt. He will lie in state in a sealed coffin during the Vespers of Friday. Vespers will begin at 6:30 PM on Friday evening, March 4, 2016. Friday evening both clergy and faithful will have the opportunity to pray in the Memorial Chapel and read the Holy Scriptures.

 

In the morning His Beatitude, Metropolitan TIKHON will preside at the Divine Liturgy in the Cathedral. The Divine Liturgy will begin at 9:30 AM on Saturday morning, March 5, 2016. Following the Divine Liturgy a Panikhida will be served, after which we will solemnly lower the coffin containing the body of Archbishop Dmitri into his final earthly resting place. This re-interment will conclude with the placing of prepared marble tiles over the crypt.

 

Texas-style hospitality will follow the festivities on Saturday.

 

In Christ,
Archimandrite Gerasim

Building upon the Orthodox Christian understanding of marriage as a journey of love in Christ, we will explore how God invites us to turn toward Him in and through our relationships with parents, children, friends, and spouse.

Session 2: Thriving in the Home

It is easy to live our daily lives in the home disconnected from the reality of Church, God, and His Kingdom. In this session we will discuss home and family life as the arena for growing in faith as Christians, and explore how to live our daily lives intimately connected to Christ and His Body, the Church.
