A Message from Father James

For roughly the first 1000 years, all of Christianity was the Orthodox Church established by Christ and handed down directly to His apostles. The current framework of Orthodox Christian worship and community that we practice here was established prior to Roman Catholicism. The unaltered original doctrine of Christian salvation, that Jesus Christ came into the world to redeem us, remains in the Orthodox Church and her sacraments. The original fourth century communion service, the Divine Liturgy, is still served in the Orthodox Church and received by the faithful every week. The ancient, unchanged, and timeless truth of the Orthodox Church is one of the reasons it is still growing as the modern world increasingly shuns spirituality.

The Orthodox Church is structured. It is mystical. It honors the saints who have gone before us and who have lived the faith and had a lasting positive impact. It is ancient, but addresses the same ancient human needs and conditions that still confront us every day, and it provides our salvation through Christ. Orthodox Christianity is the saving ark on the storm-tossed sea of this world with its non-stop crises.

As the pastor of the holy community of St. Innocent Orthodox Church parish, I invite you to experience the timeless wisdom, strength, spirituality, and holiness of the Orthodox Church for yourself. No matter who you are, the Orthodox Church has always been your Church. Come home!

With respect, and In Christ,
Father James Robinson

Prayers for Project Mexico and St. Innocent Orphanage

Prayers are needed; we have a very strong tie to this orphanage and to Project Mexico in our St Innocent community..Here's a link to the website from which the info was copied: http://ocl.org/prayer-request-for-project-mexico-st-innocent-orphanage/

"The State of Baja California (Mexico) wants to build a new four-lane highway passing directly through the St. Innocent Orthodox Orphanage facility, expropriating at least half of the property by eminent domain.  Not only will this severely limit the outreach of both the orphanage and Project Mexico’s homebuilding ministry, it will destroy a large part of the capital improvements and remove key elements of both programs that have helped to make them so successful.

The orphanage and homebuilding operation are based on a 16-acre property developed specifically to meet their unique needs.  The land purchase, facility construction, and ongoing operations have only been possible through generous donations of millions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of volunteer hours.

We’re working many different angles to stop this road construction but we know that the best “angle” by far is for God’s people to pray that He would prevent this from happening.

We ask your personal prayer support and also that you would pass this request on to your extended spiritual families, e.g. parishes, church groups, etc.  Those not familiar with the ministries can see pictures of the property and learn more at https://www.projectmexico.org/orphanage.

Thank you in advance for your prayers!

Mull Monastery and Fr. Seraphim Aldea

Fr Seraphim Aldea is working to found the first Orthodox monastery in Scotland in over a thousand years. It has been an interesting journey! He joined us Sunday, 4 February for Orthros, Divine Liturgy, and coffee hour. He gave an absolutely great presentation. He is easily found in YouTube and Google searches. 

Here's a great link: https://mullmonastery.com/videos/kilninian-a-new-beginning/

For those interested in donating to the monastery effort, please visit: https://mullmonastery.com/us-friends/

Fr. Seraphim was tonsured as a monk in 2005 at Rasca monastery in Bucovine, North Moldavia. He has a PhD in Modern Theology from the University of Durham (UK) for a thesis on Archimandrite Sophrony Sakharov's Ecclesiology. He is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Theology, Oxford University, while working to found the first Orthodox monastery in the Hebrides in over a millennium.
