To the family of the Holy Trinity Church parishioners,
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother and the oldest parishioner of the Holy Trinity, Marie Pappas. She peacefully left late night on July 9th, 2020 at her home, creating a great void in our lives. We are currently making funeral arrangements and became aware of the complications due to the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing us to alter some of the prevailing practices. Thus despite our wish to see all of the Holy Trinity members participating in her funeral, we have decided to limit attendance of the funeral services to immediate family. We need to emphasize that we reached this difficult decision because of prevailing circumstances. We still wish for you all to pray for her soul and to remember her for the good person she was and we hope to be able to offer the traditional meal in her memory in conjunction with a memorial service once the restrictions for gatherings are lifted.
May the Lord have mercy on her soul
The bereaved Pappas family

Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous.
Verse: Blessed are they whose transgressions have been forgiven.
The reading is from St. Paul's Letter to Titus 3:8-15.
Titus, my son, the saying is sure. I desire you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to apply themselves to good deeds; these are excellent and profitable to men. But avoid stupid controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels over the law, for they are unprofitable and futile. As for a man who is factious, after admonishing him once or twice, have nothing more to do with him, knowing that such a person is perverted and sinful; he is self-condemned.
When I send Artemas or Tychicos to you, do your best to come to me at Nicopolis, for I have decided to spend the winter there. Do your best to speed Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their way; see that they lack nothing. And let our people learn to apply themselves to good deeds, so as to help cases of urgent need, and not to be unfruitful.
All who are with me send greeting to you. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
Sunday of the Holy Fathers of the 4th Ecumenical Council
The Reading is from Matthew 5:14-19
The Lord said to his disciples, "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Think not that I have come to abolish the law and the prophets; I have come not to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."
