Lenten daily meditation book & class available

13 Feb

A Lenten meditation book originally co-authored and edited by Archpriest Steven Belonick (+2019), former pastor of our parish, has been newly released by Ancient Faith Publishing (AFP). The book is entitled Pilgrimage to Pascha: A Daily Devotional for Great Lent.

For each of the 40 days of Great Lent, the book offers a Scripture reading, an excerpt from the writings of the saints with a reflection, an excerpt from a Lenten hymn, the life of a saint, and a short prayer. It also includes an epilogue about Fr. Steven’s last days just prior to his repose from leukemia, written by his wife, Mat. Deborah Belonick, who also edited this new volume.

The book is available in hard copy and in various electronic versions. If you would like to order the book to help you on your Lenten journey, here’s the link.

All royalties for this book will go to the “Fr. Steven Belonick Seminarian Fund” of the Diocese of New England, Orthodox Church in America, to help finance the education of seminarians at both St. Vladimir’s and St. Tikhon’s seminaries, who intend to become pastors.

In collaboration with Fr. John Shimchick of Holy Cross Orthodox Church in Medford, NJ, we will have a three-session introduction to the book via a Zoom link at 7 p.m. on three consecutive Wednesdays: February 24, March 3, and March 10.

Memory Eternal to Father Steven!
