Sunday Pot Luck Meal was not held this month due to other meals which were held in conjunction with the various feasts. We will probably resume our monthly Pot Luck meals in May.

Quotable: " Whom have we, Lord, like you? The Great One who became small, the Wakeful who slept, the Pure One who was baptized, the Living One who died, the King who abased himself to ensure honor for all. Blessed is your honor! It is right that man should acknowledge your divinity, it is right for heavenly beings to worship your humanity. The heavenly beings were amazed to see how small you became, and earthly ones to see how exalted."
- St. Ephraim the Syrian
Weekly Quote: "All of us who are human beings are in the image of God. But to be in His likeness belongs only to those who by great love have attached their freedom to God."
