North Carolina Parish Distributes Clothing to the Needy

On Saturday, May 15/28, 2011, Fr. Anastasios Hudson and parishioners of Nativity of the Holy Theotokos Greek Orthodox Church in Greenville, North Carolina distributed clothing to over 300 people. Utilizing a dropbox, the Church collects donations of clothing until there is a sufficient amount in reserve, and then puts the clothing on the front lawn of the Church property. Through advertising, and prominently-placed signage, members of the community who are in need are alerted to the program and arrive to collect the free clothing.

The program is held approximately once a quarter, and this time over 300 people were served! Also, this distribution was featured on a local news channel. You can see a video of the event here:

Jonesboro is a town located near the Eastern border of Arkansas, with a population of approximately 60,000. From a human standpoint, it’s not the most likely candidate for a traditional Orthodox mission, but for an Orthodox Christian who orders his priorities around Christ and His Church, it makes perfect sense.

Why do we Call Angels “Saint”?

Q. I noticed that we call the angels Michael and Gabriel "Saint." I thought the title "Saint" was only given to humans who have proven themselves Godly. Do you mind clarifying this for me? Is there a deeper meaning to "Saint" that I am not aware of?
