VASILICA CELEBRATION WITH CATHEDRAL YOUTH
On the Feast of Saint Basil, the youth participated in a special celebration of the Vasilica Bread. The first piece traditionally is cut for Christ, teaching us that we offer to the Lord, the first fruits of His blessings upon us. The second piece is cut for the Mother of God, the Virgin Mary, and the third for St. Basil. The next piece is cut for the poor, to whom we must minister, and then to our guests, so that we show proper hospitality. Finally, the rest of the bread is shared with members of the family. . Each person feels special and appreciated, having individually been remembered, receiving a portion of the blessed bread. Hidden within the bread is a coin. The person who receives the piece with the coin receives a special blessing.

"WITH ALL THE HEART" 2018 STEWARDSHIP
As Christian Stewards we are called to give back to God from the “first fruits” of our labor. We support our parish and her ministries in an intentional way and not with only what it left after everything else has been taken care of. In whatever work we do, we are called to give glory to God for the abilities and opportunities he provides. We do this by caring for the work we do, applying our God-given abilities to our work, and by respecting the responsibilities with which we have been entrusted. We do our best and give the glory to God. Follow link to pledge On-Line...
