The history of St Gregory the Theologian Church appears on  The Carpathian Connection, a site created by Steven Osifchin to document the history of and assist in genealogical research for those from the former Carpathian territories or of Carpatho-Rusyn heritage.


The interior and exterior photographs are by Jim Prebish, a former parishioner of St Gregory the Theologian Church and a member of the Byzantine Forum community - where he posts as Etnick. The photographs, taken on 11 December 2011, the day on which the final Divine Liturgy was served, are used here with Jim's kind permission.


The Facebook link is to an album of photographs also taken on the day of the final Divine Liturgy served at St Gregory Church. The album is graciously hosted on the Facebook page of St Nicholas Byzantine Church in Barberton, OH, in memory of its sister parish.

Teachings of Christ

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. I and the Father are one.” (John 10:27-30 ESV)

Resurrection

Christ is risen from the dead * trampling down Death by death, * and upon those in the tombs bestowing life! (Troparion)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Although You descended into the tomb, O Immortal One, * You destroyed the power of Hades; * You arose as the victor, O Christ God, * proclaiming to the myrrh-bearing women: “Rejoice!” * And granting peace to Your Apostles, * O, You, Who gives resurrection to the fallen. (Kontakion)

Random Proverb

"My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you." (Proverbs 3:1,2 ESV)

Pray Without Ceasing

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

Our Lord Jesus Christ..., who came to liberate mankind, in which both males and females are destined to salvation, was not adverse to males, for He took the form of a male, nor to females, for of a female He was born. Besides, there is a great mystery here: that just as death comes to us through a woman, Life is born to us through a woman; that the devil - defeated - would be tormented by each nature, feminine and masculine, since he had taken delight in the defection of both.

St. Augustine of Hippo, Ca. A.D. 397, Christian Combat 22, 24 in The Faith of the Early Fathers (Jurgens, Liturgical Press) 3:50, no. 1578
