GOD WITH US ONLINE CATECHETICAL RESOURCES FOR 24TH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST: https://godwithusonline.org/reflections/the-twenty-fourth-sunday-after-pentecost-ruthenian/

The Gospel reading this Sunday is Luke 8:41-56. We read about Christ healing the hemorrhaging woman. Important to note in this story are that thoughts are a means of communication with God. The hemorrhaging woman was healed because she thought, ‘If I can but touch the hem of his garment, I shall be healed.’  Her faith so strong even in thought!

Michaelmas Celebration, after the combined outdoor (weather permitting) Divine Liturgy. Come celebrate the Feast of St. Michael and all the Holy Angels. This was a custom in our parish during which we always had a “feast” as they did in the middle ages. It also provided a good opportunity to learn about the Middle Ages time period for our students, including the rise of religious orders and the Church in medieval history. Please plan to bring some hearty (think Thanksgiving) food to share at the feast after Liturgy. Students could dress as angels, lords and ladies, religious, etc. (some costume components will be provided) for a photo booth.
