December is the month in which Florida is known for its sunny weather. It is precisely in this month, that we honor our soul and body with fasting and prayer, as we prepare for the birth of the Divine Child, Jesus Christ.

During these blessed days, His Grace Irinej brought great joy to our parish by celebrating the Hierachical Divine Liturgy on Sunday, December 15, 2019. He enriched us with his divinely inspired words, by pointing out during his homily, that only the one who is enriched with God is truly a rich person, both here on earth as in the kingdom of Heaven!
