  • Sermon: On the Blessing of the Water (January 7, 2018)
    We experience the incarnation and revelation of God in the blessing of the water. What does it mean to bless water? When we bless anything, we show it to be what God intended it to be. Water for us is life-giving.

January 2018 Monthly Message from Fr. Antony

So much of popular and common religion is self-centered, as Richard Rohr and everyday experience tells us. We have come to believe that it is about me and my salvation, my sin, my righteousness, the star in my crown, and if this is so, then there is a great distance between what we believe about Christ and who he has revealed God to be.   Read more »

Spiritual Quotes


Listen to your life. Listen to what happens to you, because it is through what happens to you that God speaks. It's in language that's not always easy to decipher, but it's there, powerfully, memorably, unforgetably.

On the Blessing of the Water

January 08, 2018 - by His Grace Bishop John
Jesus is called the lamb of God. This shows us that His incarnation and passion and suffering and death are all voluntary. He was willing because of His love for us, understanding how terrible it is that we are separated from God, to sacrifice himself so that he could share his very life with us. During the Orthros of Epiphany, we hear in the Synaxarion reading that we use our senses in this revelation of God, this Theophany. Read more »

The Beginning of the Gospel

December 31, 2017 - by Fr. Antony Hughes
The whole life, death, and resurrection was a revelation of Grace. God has filled all things with himself, even death, even the grave. He has baptized all things in the fire of his Compassion. God has taken our burdens on himself. He has set us free from sin, death, and the Evil One. The ringing and eloquent last words of Jesus in John’s Gospel was a resounding and final, 'It is finished.'
