ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Forty-day memorial for Sophronia (Sarah) Davis. Six-month memorial for Avraam Tripon. One-year memorial for Gerasimos (Jerry) Smoak and Athanasios (Arthur) Ouzounidis. May their memory be eternal!

 

  • A parishioner has done a wonderful job of cleaning out and reorganizing items in one of the old Sunday School rooms.  As a result,  there are two large metal cabinets, suitable for hanging clothes in,  that are now available.  They each measure about 6.5 feet tall x 3 feet wide.  If your church group or organization can use one or both, let me or Ginger know, first come first serve.  Otherwise they will soon be otherwise disposed of.  If you would like to see them, they are laying on the mezzanine that overlooks the gymnasium. Pete Papajohn 864-238-7085.

 

  • Please return your Pledge Cards for 2021 to the Church Office as soon as possible. For your convenience, you can also pledge online at https://www.holytrinitysc.com/online-giving/.  Thanks!

 

Saturday of the Souls


Saturday, March 6 is one of the two Saturdays in the Ecclesiatical year when we have special services for the commemoration of all of our departed brothers and sisters in Christ. The other Saturday of the Souls is on the day before Pentecost. Thus, we open the Triodion period that leads to Pascha and close the Pentecostal period after Pascha by praying for those who have fallen asleep and whose salvation, like ours, is accomplished in the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


Please remember that every Saturday of the year the Church remembers those who have fallen asleep. This is because we remember the Lord’s Rest in the tomb on Great and Holy Saturday after His Passion and Death on the Cross. This is why there are also other Saturdays on which we are urged to pray for the departed.

Please remember your departed loved ones at the Divine Liturgy this Saturday, March 6. Do so by bringing to church their names (before liturgy is best) so they can be commemorated during the proskomeide (the preparation of the gifts), after the consecration of the gifts in the Liturgy, and in the memorial service after the liturgy.


Our departed loved ones, who gave birth to us, who raised us, who are our brothers, sisters, spouses, and friends are grateful to us for our prayers.


As we celebrate the Divine Liturgy, we celebrate the Lord’s death and resurrection. We are reunited in prayer with our loved ones and they are comforted, being in the presence of our Lord’s sacred body and blood. We anticipate the general resurrection, when we pray to be reunited in the bosom of Abraham, in heaven.


Amen.

Fr. Michael
