Contact Father Gary:

When you are facing a serious problem: Priest have been trained to help people with their personal, family and other problems. The important judgment of a spiritual leader, together with his prayers for Divine guidance, will enable you to face your problems with confidence. Do not allow your problems to get too big for you.

When someone is interested in the church: You constantly meet young people and adults who are in your community, and others who have not united with the local church. Put in a good word for your church and tell your Priest about prospective members.

There there is illness: Your priest is near as your telephone. His presence, counsel and prayers will be helpful. Your Pastor will appreciate your phone call when you, your loved one or friend is sick or going to the hospital.

When there is death: Your priest should be notified when there is a death in the family. He can give comfort and counsel at this difficult time.

When there is a wedding: Your priest should be consulted before the wedding day is set, since you will need to have conferences with your Priest, it is necessary to contact him well in advance of the desired wedding date.

When someone desires to become an Orthodox Christian: Happy indeed is the Priest who is asked to talk with someone desiring to embrace Orthodoxy. Tell your Priest about friends who are interested knowing more about Orthodox Church.
