Bring Your Foreparent Icons this Sunday

All parishioners named for an Old Testament saint are reminded to bring their forefather/foremother icons to Vespers on Saturday or Sunday morning. Holy Trinity will place your icons in the Nave in celebration of the Sunday of the Forefathers as these are the ancestors of Christ according to the flesh, who lived before the Law and under the Law, especially the Patriarch Abraham, to whom God said, “In thy seed shall all of the nations of the earth be blessed” (Gen. 12:3, 22:18).

Come all who love the feast, let us praise in psalms the assembly of the Forefathers: Adam, our first Father, Enoch, Noah,Melchizedek, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; and those who came after the  Law: Moses, Aaron, Joshua, Samuel and David, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel, and with them the Twelve Prophets: Elijah, Elisha, and all the rest, Zachariah and John the Baptist: all those who proclaimed  Christ, the Life and Resurrection of the human race!
