    The Great Lenten season begins today.  Scripture, hymnology, and teachings of the church instruct us to enter this period with great joy.  It is a time of intense prayer, fasting, giving to those in need, and being silent.  It is also a time for additional services.  

    During this season, you will be receiving daily emails called Spiritual Wisdom.  Each of them are short messages for reflection and inspiration.   Take some time and learn more about the church by going to the Archdiocesan website, There you will find a tremendous amount of information for this season.

    I pray this communication finds you to be well and in the best of health.

    Over a year ago, a wonderful movie depicting the life of Saint Nektarios called "Man of God" was released at the Los Angeles Film Festival. A number of our parishioners were able to view the movie which was shown only online, at 10pm EST. It was absolutely wonderful and gave a tremendous amount of insight into this saints life.

    The movie will be released for one day only in a number of theaters across the United States on March 21 for one day only. You will need to pre-purchase tickets for this through the website of the theaters.

    Here is the link -

    Most of the theaters are small, and it is not something to wait until the last minute. As of now, this movie is only available in this platform, it has not been released on any of the movie channels. It is a wonderful way to spend the evening with your fellow Orthodox Christians throughout the region, especially during the Lenten Season.

    Again, I remind you, don't wait until the last minute, or just show up at the theater. We have no control over any of this and are merely sharing the information with you.

    God bless,
    Father Dean
