Camp Cabin Expansion Project Groundbreaking

Thursday, October 08, 2015

MERCER, PA [Camp Nazareth] -- On Thursday morning, October 18, 2015, a few priests and lay people gathered together at Camp Nazareth to celebrate the groundbreaking service for the beginning of the Camp’s Cabin Expansion Project. It turned out to be a beautiful day on which to celebrate outdoors and say the prayers together to begin this project. The service was celebrated at the Holy Innocents Shrine. The Holy Innocents are the patron saints of the Camp itself. Their shrine is located in the grove of trees in front of cabins 4 & 5. The shrine was beautifully adorned with Fall plants and flowers; fitting for the task at hand. The service itself was beautiful. The Very Rev. Protopresbyter Kenneth Bachofsky, who is the Camp Overseer, mentioned after the service was over that St. Paul exhorts us to pray at all times, to pray constantly, as a way of both putting and showing our trust in God, and as a way of defeating the evil one.

Saved By Bunnies

Thursday, October 08, 2015

The memory that sticks out to me the most took place on a Wednesday at camp, while we were celebrating our Moleben to the Holy Cross outdoors. If you were there, you’d remember a sermon by Fr. John Fedornock and an unpleasant sound cutting through the trees behind the Cross. It was clear to us it was an animal but we were unsure as to what exactly was making the cries! After the sermon, I crept behind the Cross in order to see what the sound was. I discovered that it was a small baby bunny Read more...

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 63: Wearing The Right Clothes

Sunday, October 11, 2015

In Jesus’ Matthew 22 parable of the Great Wedding Feast, He uses an event common to all, a wedding feast, to say something about the Kingdom of God. The king sends out an invitation for everyone to attend his son’s wedding feast. Those who outright refuse are destroyed. Then there are the rest. Anyone from the street may come, “…both good and bad” (Matthew 22:10 RSV). At the feast, the king visits his guests. It was custom, of course, to be appropriately dressed for a king’s feast. Even if one did not have the right clothes, the king could provide such when the invitation was sent out. But here was a guest without proper wedding feast attire. “Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?” Without an answer, the guest is treated just like those who had rejected the invitation in the first place: “Bind him hand and foot, and cast him into the outer darkness…” (Matthew 22:13 RSV). Although the invitation into the Kingdom of God is open to all, it rests upon those invited to respond in an appropriate manner. Yes, the guest had been invited. But he showed disrespect to the king Read more...
