Pastor’s Corner February 2013

17 Feb

This month our whole community witnessed the baptism of our newest member “Chase Andrew” February 17, 2013. The baptism occurred within the context of the Sunday Divine Liturgy, and rightly so, for baptism is not a private ceremony, but rather a community event. When we are baptized, we not only die to our sins and rise to new life in Jesus Christ, we also join the Church. We become “members of one another,” as St. Paul says in his epistle. Welcome, little Chase, to Holy Ghost Orthodox Church!

But, the baptism could not have occurred if Ed Moyer and his son hadn’t dug out a pathway to Holy Ghost Church following the blizzard of 2013, Storm Nemo, which dumped more than 3 feet of snow around our church and even closed us down Sunday, February 10th. Up to one week after the storm, the city still hadn’t plowed East Main south of Boston Post Road. Thanks to Ed Moyer and his son for digging us out!

In Him, Fr. Steven J. Belonick
