March Greek Dinner to Go

For our March Greek Meal to Go join our Holy Trinity community (68 North State St., Concord) celebrating a special Orthodox tradition, the Apokeatiko or Carnival Dinner. It is traditionally the last meat that Orthodox Christians eat before the beginning of the fast of Great Lent. Our meal this month coincides with Apokreas or Meatfare Sunday, March 7 (this is earlier than our normal date) with pick up from 12 noon to 1 pm. Our Apokreatiko offering is Greek Beef Stew with Orzo (Youvetsi), Greek Salad and a dinner roll. The price is $15 per meal. The cut off for order is Wednesday, March 3 (This must be a hard and fast cut off date!). To order either call 603-953-3051, or email: ordermygreekfood@gmail.com, or on our website: www.holytrinitynh.org. You can pay online at the website (click on the flyer or the “contribute to Holy Trinity in the upper right hand corner), send in the check to the church, or pay when you pick up. Thank you for your support. Kali Orexi! Good Appetite!

 

Re-Catechism Sessions

In the early church, a person wanting to become a Christian would spend 3 years learning how to live a Chrstian life. Today our instruction in the faith is much less intense. As a result, many of our faithful, both from birth and converts, do not have a good grasp on the faith. In order to help remedy this situation, we will have regular Re-Catechism Sessions, each lasting approximately for 8 sessions every other week. At present our sessions are on Zoom.

Our present session is THE CHURCH IN THE WORLD: How to Approach Modern Questions with an Ancient Faith. We will be meeting for 8 sessions (depending on the length of the discussions, we may need more than, every other Tuesday beginning on October 6 at 7:00 pm on Zoom. Our discussions will center on the recent document on the Church in the world, For the Life of the World: Toward a Social Ethos of the Orthodox Church. There is much information and will lead to good and fruitful discussions! The Zoom link will be sent before each session.

This session of our Re-Catechism discussions will end in February. Our next session will begin in March with a study of the Jesus Prayer, based on the book by Frederica Matthewes-Green, The Jesus Prayer: The Ancient Desert Prayer That Tunes the Heart to God.

 

On-Line Book Club

We begin our next book discussion on Thursday, February 18 at 7:30 pm. We will begin reading and discussing Frederica Matthewes-Green book, Facing East. Her book chronicles a year in the life of their new Orthodox mission parish, Holy Cross, in Baltimore MD, and how a small band of mostly converts learned how to negotiate the rich, and yet confusing, world of Orthodox Christianity. Our meetings are on Microsoft Teams; please contact Fr. Constantine to be put on the list to receive the link.

The classic story of a family's pilgrimage into the Orthodox Church.

Veiled in the smoke of incense, the Eastern Orthodox Church has long been an enigma to the Western world. Yet, as Frederica Mathewes-Green discovered, it is a vital, living faith, rich in ritual beauty and steadfast in integrity. Utilizing the framework of the Orthodox calendar, Mathewes-Green chronicles a year in the life of her small Orthodox mission church, eloquently illustrating the joys and blessings an ancient faith can bring to the worshipers of today.
