On Sunday June 25, 2017, following the Divine Liturgy, Protodeacon Peter Danilchick will be discussing his new book on Christian leadership "Thy Will Be Done: Strategic Leadership, Planning, and Management for Christians", recently published by St. Vladimir's Seminary Press. Copies of his book will be available for purchase as well as signing by Protodeacon Peter. These books would make excellent gifts for all church leaders but especially young people in college or entering the business or corporate world.

This is what Metropolitan Tikhon had to say about the book: "Protodeacon Peter is a gifted person who combines extraordinary competence and achievement in the secular world with devoted Christian service on every level of church life, from parishes to patriarchs. This book distills his vast and varied experience in practical and inspiring ways that will be of immediate benefit to anyone interested in how to better lead, plan and manage in churches, church organizations and charitable institutions. But it will also help Christians who have or aspire to leadership roles in the wider business world and who want to figure out how to better work as Christians in those settings. There is no other book like this."

Protodeacon Peter serves at St. Mary Orthodox Church in Falls Church, Virginia in the Romanian Episcopate of the OCA. He also serves as a Trustee of St. Vladimir's Seminary and on the Secretariat of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the USA. He is a retired executive from Exxon Mobil Corporation. For more information, see his website http://www.christianleadership.co/


Gift Corner: Please come and easily find something for everyone on your gift list.  There are books for children as well as adults, a new collection of amber, honey and beautiful new icons painted by our very own master iconographer Alexander Moskalionov. Our book room in the annex has hundreds of new volumes that are $1 each unless marked otherwise.


"O Lord, sanctify those, who love the beauty of Your house!

Reward them with Your rich and Heavenly gifts, 

given them Heavenly things for the earthly ones, 

eternal things for the temporal ones, 

incorruptible things for those that perish"

St. Basil the Great. Liturgy
