The Bay Area is a wonderful place for richly diverse Orthodox Christian communities. Several parishes have sent us information on fundraisers to support your celebrations around the Nativity of Christ. See below for links to fliers from San Francisco, Menlo Park, and Saratoga:
On Sunday, October 3, fifteen high school teens from Holy Trinity Cathedral, St. Seraphim Cathedral, St. Nicholas Church, Nativity of the Virgin Church, and St. Susanna Mission gathered in San Francisco at Holy Trinity Cathedral, Fisherman’s Wharf, and Pier 39 for a full afternoon and evening of fellowship. They had a great time being with one another (as did their chaperones)! A true opportunity to encourage one another and build one another up (1 Thessalonians 5:11)!
“In the radiance of His light the world is not commonplace. The very floor we stand on is a miracle of atoms whizzing about in space. The darkness of sin is clarified, and its burden shouldered. Death is robbed of its finality, trampled down by Christ’s death. In a world where everything that seems to be present is immediately past, everything in Christ is able to participate in the eternal present of God.”
– Fr. Alexander Schmemann
