Outdoor Holy Qurbana

 Dear Church Family, 

On August 30, 2020, the Managing Committee decided to move Holy Qurbana outdoors, weather permitting, from September 12 to October 11. Thankfully, this trial period was both spiritually beneficial for our community and compliant with the LA County Health Orders and CDC guidelines. Therefore, the Managing Committee has decided to continue Outdoor Holy Qurbana, weather permitting, until further notice and in full accordance with all safety guidelines. 

We would like to appreciate all those who have helped the preparations for Outdoor Holy Qurbana each and every week. Their immense contribution is what has allowed us to participate in Holy Qurbana every week safely and according to CDC guidelines. 

Again, thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding during this evolving situation. We pray and hope everyone is in good health.

Thank you,

St. Thomas, LA - Managing Committee

The Theotokos had now reached an advanced age. Her fervent and unceasing desire was to leave the body and be with her beloved Son and God. The Mother of God did not fear death, nor did she seek to avoid it. She knew that death had already been overcome by her Son and God. At that time she still lived in the house of John the Evangelist on Mount Sion. She often went from there to the Mount of Olives to offer fervent prayers. As she was thus praying on the Mount of Olives that the Lord quickly take her to heaven, there appeared before her the archangel Gabriel and disclosed to the Theotokos the following: “Thus says your Son: The days are approaching when I will take My Mother unto Me”. Thus the Virgin heard those much longed for words which she received with gladness.
