SAINT FOR THE WEEK - Saint Photios the Great
Posted by: Holy Cross Church
As for the thrice-blessed Photius, the great and most resplendent Father and teacher of the Church, the Confessor of the Faith and Equal to the Apostles, he lived during the years of the emperors Michael (the son of Theophilus), Basil the Macedonian, and Leo his son. He was the son of pious parents, Sergius and Irene, who suffered for the Faith under the Iconoclast Emperor Theophilus; he was also a nephew of Saint Tarasius, Patriarch of Constantinople (see Feb. 25). He was born in Constantinople, where he excelled in the foremost imperial ministries, while ever practicing a virtuous and godly life. An upright and honorable man of singular learning and erudition, he was raised to the apostolic, ecumenical, and patriarchal throne of Constantinople in the year 857.

KIDS 'n' CANCER - Sunday, February 10

Please join the Philoptochos on February 10 after Liturgy in The Oaks for our annual  Kids’n’Cancer Coffee Hour Reception.  We will have a delicious coffee hour buffet and lots of surprises, including a raffle, balloons and fun centerpieces for purchase.  Please consider making a donation to this Philoptochos ministry.  Our goal is to meet or exceed last year’s collection of $7,000!  For children who are battling life-threatening cancers, this ministry provides a few days of total fun and makes a permanent connection with these children which continues on after their participation in one of our five camps.  They become part of our Philoptochos family.  We pray for their health and sometimes, sadly, mourn their loss with their family.  Please be generous and give your heart to a child
