On this day we celebrate the birth of the Most Holy Virgin Mary to the holy righteous Joachim and Anna in the Galilean city of Nazareth. St. Joachim was a descendent of the royal line of David, and St. Anna — of the priestly line of Aaron. The Virgin Mary was granted to them in their old age, after their intensified prayers that the barrenness of Anna be loosed. The name Maria in translation from the Hebrew means "high," "excellent," or "lady." Read more about the feast here.

This feast is celebrated in commemoration of two events: 1) the finding of the life-creating cross of the Lord by the holy righteous empress Helen, the mother of Emperor Constantine the Great, in Jerusalem in 326, and 2) its return from the Persians in 628 during the reign of the Greek emperor Heraclius, after the Persian king Hozar, in 614, had overcome Jerusalem, looted the temple of the Resurrection, and stolen, in addition to other treasures, the cross of the Lord. The Exaltation of the Cross of the Lord, in commemoration of the suffering of the Lord upon the cross, is a fast day, on which not only ferial foods but even fish may not be eaten.  Read more about the feast here.

Church reopening - Stage 2
As we work towards reopening the church, we will be following CDC’s guidelines to ensure proper procedures in keeping everyone safe and healthy. Entering the second stage of reopening, we can work at 50% capacity. Listed below are the guidelines by which we will function.
  1. A limited amount of 50 worshipers will be allowed in the church per service.
  2. Parishioners must ensure 6-foot distancing and use of face coverings.
  3. Church Attendance: Please attend church by staggering your attendance. For example; come every 2nd or 3rd week. This allows everyone the opportunity to attend church while staying safe.
  4. In the church, we will refrain from venerating and kissing icons, the chalice, and the priest’s hand. A simple bow will be appropriate. This will be the practice until the pandemic passes.
  5. Confession will be done during vigil. You must wear a mask. Do not use masks with an exhale valve.
  6. If you are sick or have any respiratory symptoms or fever please stay home and do not come to any services until you have fully recovered.
  7. Please note we are no longer allowed to park in the school parking lot. This is according to Denver School Mandate.
We look forward to continuing this reopening process with your help. God Bless you all!

Archpriest Boris Henderson
St. John (Maximovitch): Nothing is Fearful for the Person Whose Hope is in God

Where can I go from Thy Spirit, and where can I escape from Thy presence? If I go up into heaven, Thou art there; if I go down into hades, Thou art present there. If I take up my wings toward the dawn, and make mine abode in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there shall Thy hand guide me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.” (Psalm 138: 7-10)
These divinely inspired words of the Psalmist David should be particularly in our thoughts during these days, when the entire world is literally quaking, and from every direction comes news of all kinds of distress, shocks and calamities.
Before you can concentrate on what is occurring in one country, you are distracted by even more threatening events which have unexpectedly erupted someplace else; and before you can get a grasp on them, yet other news distracts your attention to still some other location, forcing you to lose track of the previous ones, even though they have by no means reached their conclusion.
