St Michael's Festival Check Presentation

The 8th Annual Parish Festival “Christmas in September and Car Show” on September 22 through 24 at St. Michael's Center in Jermyn, Pennsylvania, was a tremendous success. Very Rev. John Kowalczyk and Protodeacon Gabriel Petorak accept a check on behalf of St. Michael's Orthodox Church from St. Michael's Council President and Festival Committee Chairman, George Petorak. We give thanks to the hard-working Committee members and to everyone who supported our Parish Festival as we embraced the greater community with our open hearts and hospitality.

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
