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

Holy Qurbana to end Shunoyo Fast - Sat., August 15th @ 9am

 A Holy Qurbana is scheduled for Saturday, August 15th at 9am to end the Shunoyo Fast (Assumption of St. Mary).  Please plan to attend with your family.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.

Church Reintegration Plan - Updated 6/15/20

Dear Church Family, 

This is an update to our Church Reintegration Plan

On June 14th, the managing committee met to discuss our initial experience from re-opening church this past weekend. We are adjusting our plans, while keeping everyone's health and safety as the main priority, with the following changes:

1. Registration - The link is open to everyone in the church. For now, we will NOT limit attendance by prayer groups.
   b.  It will be ‘first come, first served’ 
   c.  Please register for either Saturday OR Sunday

2. Maximum Capacity- We will be limited to 40 registrants per Holy Qurbana

3. Shoes - You may remove your shoes outside of the church, instead of bringing them into church with you. Shoes will NOT be allowed in the church lobby/narthex since we are trying to eliminate crowding.

4. Arrival - Everyone participating in Qurbana MUST arrive by 9:45AM. (instead of 9:30AM)

We welcome your thoughts and feedback as we 
continue to re-evaluate this plan, while keeping focused on the health and safety of our entire Church Family. We also appreciate your patience through this. 

Let us continue to pray for all those afflicted by and caring for those with COVID-19

Prayerfully,
Managing Committee 2020

Church Reopen Plan - Starts Sunday, June 14, 2020


Dear Church Family,

On June 1, 2020, the Managing Committee made the decision to reintegrate the congregation into worship services on the church premises starting Sunday, June 14. This will be done in a phased manner (one prayer group at a time) in accordance with the LA County Department of Public Health Order of the Health Officer and the CDC Guidelines.

The following is a summary of the important highlights which we will be following. It is very important that we follow these steps so that we can keep ourselves and others healthy.

  1. This is our plan for reintegration
a.     During this phase, we will have Holy Qurbana every Saturday and Sunday.
b.     The Managing Committee will assign a specific Saturday or Sunday Holy Qurbana to each prayer group. This will continue until we are allowed to have everyone gather for church together.
c.      Everyone who is participating in Holy Qurbana from a prayer group MUST register via our Breeze system by the THURSDAY before their assigned Qurbana. This is the link: http://reopen.stthomasla.com
d.     If a prayer group does not fill the maximum allowed spots for their Saturday or Sunday Qurbana by Thursday (refer to point c), the remaining spots will be made available to the rest of the parish.
e.     Each prayer group leader should help their prayer group members register so that they can participate in Holy Qurbana

  1. The St. Gregorios Prayer Group (Bellflower, Norwalk, Lakewood, etc) is assigned to attend Holy Qurbana this Sunday, June 14. We will inform everyone of future assignments soon.

  1. You must not attend church if ANY of the following apply to you.
a.     Those above the age of 65
b.     Those with immune-compromising illnesses, diabetes, heart conditions, respiratory conditions
c.      New or worsening cough
d.     Sore throat
e.     Shortness of breath
f.       Fever of more than 100 degrees F OR any medicine to reduce fever in the last 24 hours
g.     Loss of smell or taste
h.     You or anyone in your household who has been diagnosed with COVID 19 in the last 14 day
i.       Understandably, you will not be allowed into church if any of these apply to you

  1. Church Protocols
a.     PARKINGEVERY OTHER space, leave 1 parking spot between you and the nearest car
b.     ARRIVAL TIME - Everyone must arrive during Morning Prayer on or before 9:30am. No one will be allowed to enter the church after the Holy Qurbana has begun
c.      FACE COVERINGS -  MUST be worn by everyone in the congregation. No admission will be allowed if a mask is not used and worn throughout the Qurbana
d.     SHOES -  Remove footwear outside the church and place them in a bag and bring them into church with you
e.     TEMPERATURE - will be taken for everyone upon entering the church lobby by a committee member who is wearing a face mask and gloves
f.       HAND SANITIZER - The committee member will also provide everyone entering/exiting the church hand sanitizer
g.     SEATING - Families will be seated together at a 6 ft distance from any other family; children must stand with their parents
h.     ENTERING & EXITING  - The lobby entrance will be a one-way entrance only and the center aisle will be a one-way path; The side exit doors of the church will be the one-way exit from the church
i.       RECEIVING QURBANA & DISMISSAL - Holy Qurbana will be given to the faithful after the final curtain is drawn and those who receive Qurbana will then dismiss from the church via the proper exit door
j.       FELLOWSHIP - There will be no fellowship in the church or in the parking lot following the Holy Qurbana. Moreover, there will be no admission downstairs, except for bathroom usage, in order to prevent coming up and down the same stairwell
We recognize that the extra steps may be slightly tedious, however we ask that everyone follow these steps so that we can continue to keep the potential spread of COVID19 minimized. Furthermore, it is important that we comply with these as they are per the guidance from the LA County Department of Health and CDC. In addition to the reintegration, we will continue to livestream Sunday services.
Let us continue to pray to God for all those who are afflicted by or caring for those with COVID19.
Prayerfully, Managing Committee 2020

COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS UPDATE - March 17th

Dear Congregation,

Managing Committee met on March 17th and discussed the COVID-19 situation and its impact to our church family.

We have made a decision to celebrate Holy Qurbana with only a priest and needed acolytes until April 1. In order to adhere to the current guidance of the CDC to keep any gathering to less than 10 people, we request the rest of our faithful to refrain from coming to church until further notice. (This includes all activities i.e. evening prayers and Sunday Service) When possible, we will arrange for live-streaming as was done on March 15th.

For those in need that wish to receive Holy Qurbana, please contact Samuel Achen and he will explore arrangements to come to you.

We will be monitoring the situation carefully and will update everyone on or before April 1. Please continue to adhere to your local health department guidance, as well as the CDC.

Let us continue to pray for all those affected by the virus and those who are assisting to combat this pandemic.

Prayerfully,
St. Thomas LA - Managing Committee 2020

COVID-19 CoronaVirus Update

We request all who are sick, elderly, pregnant or with any health conditions to stay home and refrain from attending any events or gatherings.  We also request anyone who is uncomfortable with these situations to refrain from attending any events or Holy Qurbana. If you wish to receive the Holy Qurbana at your home, please make a request to either of the Achens.


Protection measures for everyone

Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available on the WHO website and through your national and local public health authority. Many countries around the world have seen cases of COVID-19 and several have seen outbreaks. Authorities in China and some other countries have succeeded in slowing or stopping their outbreaks. However, the situation is unpredictable so check regularly for the latest news.

You can reduce your chances of being infected or spreading COVID-19 by taking some simple precautions:
  
      Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
    
Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.

      Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.

      Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.

      Keep up to date on the latest COVID-19 hotspots (cities or local areas where COVID-19 is spreading widely). If possible, avoid traveling to places  – especially if you are an older person or have diabetes, heart or lung disease.
Why? You have a higher chance of catching COVID-19 in one of these areas.

Service of Reconciliation - Mon., February 24 at 6:30pm


Feast of Vattasseril Thirumeni & Makarios Thirumeni

Feast Day: February 23rd


St. Geevarghese Mar Dionysius Vattasseril

Vattasseril Geevarghese Mar Dionysius is popularly known as Malankara Sabha Bhasuran (The Great Luminary of Malankara Orthodox Church) which our Church has bestowed on him in recognition of his rich contribution to Malankara Orthodox Church. Vattasseril Thirumeni was a man of prayer, determination and dynamism. He was a saint who never stooped before falsehood.

As our Church pays its profound respects to the sacred memory of Mar Dionysius VI, it should dedicate itself to follow his example and build on what he had begun. May the remembrance of his saintly life be a blessing to the Church as a whole and to its members individually.

H.G. Dr. Thomas Mar Makarios

He was instrumental in the growth of our church and have been part of many of our lives.  Let us all pray and remember the great things he has blessed us with on this special day.  May his memory live with us forever.

Three Day Fast of Nineveh - February 3-5

In the first qolo of Thursday evening prayer, we sing:
The Ninevites trembled at the voice of Jonah, the son of Mattai, and took refuge in penitence by watching, fasting and prayer; and by tears and groans the sentence of judgment pronounced by Jonah concerning the destruction of Nineveh was annulled. Blessed be the Compassionate one who turned them from evil to good. 
The three-day fast commemorates the three days Jonah spent in the belly of the fish and also the repentance of the city of Nineveh. Jonah runs away from God and from the mission that was entrusted to him. Jonah was cast into the sea and in the belly of the whale Jonah cries out to God. Jonah proclaims his message: “in 40 days Nineveh will be overthrown.” The people fast and pray. The king also prays and commands the whole city to call on God in the hopes that God would relent and withdraw his anger. God withholds his judgment due to their repentance and prayers. The Three Day Fast is in a way our preparation for the Great Lent. St. Jerome writes: “Fasting is not merely a perfect virtue: it is the foundation of all the other virtues; it is sanctification, purity, and prudence, – virtues without which no one can see God.” 
The origins of the Nineveh Fast in the Syrian Orthodox Church can be traced back to the fourth century AD. This can be inferred from the memres and hymns of St. Ephrem, the Syrian. Initially the fast was for six days, but now it is only for three days starting on the third Monday before the Great Lent. The 3 days Fast had been neglected through the ages. Mar Dionysius Bar Salibi states that Mar Marutha of Tikrit was the one who enjoined it on the Church of the East first in the region of Nineveh. Armenians embraced this practice of the Syrians calling it (Sorep Sarkis). The Copts did the same during the time of Patriarch Anba Eprem, the Syrian. 
Historically, this fast is one of the most rigorously observed fasts in the Church. The faithful traditionally refrain from food and drink for three consecutive days, from Monday till Wednesday. Some observe the fast by refraining from food and drink from morning till sunset during the three days. The church exhorts her faithful to at least refrain from meat, fish and dairy products during the period of fasting. The faithful are urged to go to church after this fast and receive the Holy Qurbono.
In the Old Testament, preparation for a special holy occasion included fasting and prayer. The New Testament often mentions fasting. Fasting is clearly not optional inasmuch as Jesus Christ said, regarding fasting “When you fast” (Matt. 6:16), rather than “If you fast.” Fasting is the change of every part of our life, because the sacrifice of the fast is not the abstinence but the distancing from sins. Fasting is an essential aspect of practicing the Orthodox life. You cannot be Orthodox and not fast. Unfortunately, many in the Church today do not participate in this grace-bestowing practice. 
St. John Chrysostom says: “Fasting purifies the mind, calms the senses, subjects the flesh to the spirit, renders the heart humble and contrite, disperses the clouds of concupiscence, extinguishes the heat of passion, and lights up the fire of chastity.” 
Fasting in the Orthodox Church has two aspects: physical and spiritual. The first one implies abstinence from food, such as dairy products, eggs, fish and all kinds of meat. Spiritual fasting consists in abstinence from evil thoughts, desires, and deeds. The main purpose of fasting is to gain mastery over oneself and to conquer the passions of the flesh. It is to liberate oneself from dependence on the things of this world in order to concentrate on the things of the Kingdom of God. It is to give power to the soul so that it would not yield to temptation and sin. 
Basil the great reminds us, “As much as you subtract from the body, so much will you add to the strength of the soul. True fasting lies is rejecting evil, holding one's tongue, suppressing one's hatred, and banishing one's lust, evil words, lying, and betrayal of vows.”
