Nativity Fast (November 15 - December 24): This month, the Nativity Fast (November 15 through December 24) starts at sundown on November 14. It is a season of preparation for the celebration of the Nativity (December 25), the birth of Jesus Christ. We use this time to renew ourselves spiritually by giving more attention to almsgiving, prayer and fasting, as well as taking stock of our lives and examining our consciences in the sacrament of confession, which is available after any worship service or by appointment with our parish presbyter, Father Michael Shuster.
From Our Bishop: A Letter for Nativity Fast 2015: Bishop Gregory of Nyssa, head of our American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the USA, encourages us to make the most of the Nativity Fast to grow as people whose way of living lives up to the Prince of Peace born in Bethlehem.

A Challenge From Our Bishop: "My peace I give you," Jesus Christ said (John 14:27). Given today's headlines, heaven knows peace is what we so desperately need — in our hearts, in our homes and in our habitat. Bishop Gregory of Nyssa, the head of our diocese, challenges us to pray for peace daily in our evening prayers during the Nativity Fast this year.

Put Compassion Into Action: Jesus said how we treat those in need is how we treat him (Matthew 25:31-46). Practice the love of neighbor he commanded in his gospel (Mark 12:31) by bringing your weekly gifts to church on Sunday to help disadvantaged children, women and men locally through the Dawn Center and Westside Elementary School. Items needed: canned and nonperishable food, personal hygiene products, baby care supplies, school supplies, children's arts and crafts supplies, new or gently used and clean clothing. Also needed: greeting card front covers, Campbell Soup labels and Box Tops for Education coupons (found on many nonperishable food packages) for Saint Jude's Ranch for Children, which rescues children of all races and religion from abuse, neglect and abandonment.
