Hymns of the Day

Resurrectional Apolytikion in the Plagal Fourth Mode

You descended from on high, O compassionate One, and condescended to be buried for three days, so that from the passions You might set us free. Our life and resurrection, O Lord, glory be to You.

Apolytikion for Theophany Afterfeast in the First Mode

Lord, when You were baptized in the Jordan, the veneration of the Trinity was revealed. For the voice of the Father gave witness to You, calling You Beloved, and the Spirit, in the guise of a dove, confirmed the certainty of His words. Glory to You, Christ our God, who appeared and enlightened the world.

Apolytikion for the Church in the Plagal Fourth Mode

Blessed are You, O Christ our God; you made the fishermen all-wise by sending down upon them the Holy Spirit, and through them you drew the world into your net. O Lover of mankind, glory to You.

Eυλογητός εί, Χριστέ ο Θεός υμών, ο πανσόφους τούς αλιείς αναδείξας, καταπέμψας αύτοις το Πνεύμα το Άγιον, καί δι αυτών την οικουμένην σαγηνεύσας, Φιλάνθρωπε, δόξα σοι!

Evloyitós i, Hristé o Theós imón; o pansófous tous aliís anadhíxas, katapémpsas aftís to pnévma to áyion, ke dhi aftón tin ikouménin sayinéfsas, Filánthrope, dhóxa si.

Seasonal Kontakion in the Fourth Mode

You appeared to the world today, and Your light, O Lord, has left its mark upon us. With fuller understanding we sing to You: "You came, You were made manifest, the unapproachable light."

Gospel and Epistle Readings

Epistle Reading

Prokeimenon. First Mode. Psalm 32.22,1.
Let your mercy, O Lord, be upon us.
Verse: Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous.

The reading is from St. Paul's Letter to the Ephesians 4:7-13.

BRETHREN, grace was given to each of us according to the measure of Christ's gift. Therefore it is said, "When he ascended on high he led a host of captives, and he gave gifts to men." (in saying, "He ascended," what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower parts of the earth? He who descended is he who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.) And his gifts were that some should be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

Gospel Reading

Sunday after Epiphany
The Reading is from Matthew 4:12-17

At that time, when Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew into Galilee; and leaving Nazareth he went and dwelt in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: "The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, toward the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles, the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned." From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."

Philoptochos is collecting dues for membership in 2019.  Please print your name, address, phone number and email and attach to your payment ($30 and $25 for seniors).  Dues can be given to any Philoptochos Board member. 

2019 STEWARDSHIP - By this time everyone should have received their mailing from the Stewardship committee with a letter and a 2019 Stewardship card.  Please take the time to sit down and fill out the card and pray over what you feel you can give to help support and run Our Church.  On average it takes $1500.00 a day to keep Holy Trinity up and running.  Your gracious Stewardship is a reflection on the love and community that we have here at Holy Trinity.  We are truly Blessed.  If you have any questions and/or would like more information regarding Stewardship, please see Georgette or Peter Kennedy or any Parish Council member.  Blank 2019 Stewardship pledge cards are also available for pickup in the Narthex.  THANK YOU for your support.

Just a reminder that work is set to begin soon on the kitchen renovation project and the kitchen will be closed until further notice.  We thank you for your understanding.

The Holy Martyrs Hermylus and Stratonicus

Saints Hermylus and Stratonicus contested for piety's sake during the reign of Licinius, in the year 314. Saint Hermylus was a deacon, and Stratonicus was his friend. For his confession of Christ, Hermylus was beaten so fiercely that his whole body was covered with wounds. Stratonicus, seeing him endure this and other torments that left him half dead, wept with grief for his friend. From this he was discovered to be a Christian, and when he had openly professed his Faith and had been beaten, he and Hermylus were cast into the Danube River, receiving the crown of martyrdom.
