Garden Center Visit For November

Scene from Garden Center Visit For November

Fr. Andrew started our visit with the story of St. Catherine of Alexandria who was a Christian maiden who possessed beauty, brains and noble birth. She rebuked the heathen emperor Maxentius for his idolatry and after he found out Catherine had converted his queen and 200 soldiers, he had her sentenced her to be tortured on a spiked wheel, but the wheel flew apart and the fragments killed many of her accusers. The emperor then had her beheaded. The angels carried her to Mount Sinai, where St. Catherine's Monastery is now located.

Children's Sermon For November

Scene from Children's Sermon For November

The monthly children's sermon was about stewardship and self denial. Fr. Andrew quoted Mark 8:34 where Jesus said we should deny ourselves take up his Cross and follow him.

Scene from Children's Sermon For November

The example he used was Halloween candy. He made three piles of candy and one of the piles had only one piece. He explained that giving from the other two piles would not be self denial but if you gave away the only piece you had to your brother that would be self denial.
