Lent Speech 2014 – Crippled Woman

Speech by Jessica John

Glory be The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, Amen.

Respected Achen and my dear brothers and sisters in Christ. Today’s Lenten Sermon comes from St. Luke 13: 10-17, otherwise known as the story of the crippled women. Many of us have heard of this miracle whether it was through Sunday school or a retreat. A women who was crippled for many years was healed by Jesus Christ and that’s it right? Wrong! This is a miracle that put many of the Pharisees to shame and gathered many people to rejoice in God’s love. This is a miracle that promoted hope to everyone facing physical and emotional distress, especially to women.

Lent Speech 2014 – Miracle At Cana

Speech by Nevin Pothen

Glory be to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit one true God; Amen.

Respected Achen, teachers, parents and my dear friends in Christ, today we celebrate the first of Jesus’ miracles which is the turning of water into wine at the Wedding at Canna taken from the Gospel of St. John 2:1-11. Many of us have heard this story many times as children and mainly know that Jesus performed a miracle by turning water into the best wine. Even though many of us know the story, there are other minute details that many of us don’t know about. It’s important to know the meaning these details carry in order to understand the story in a whole new perspective.

St. Mary’s 5K Run/Walk – 2013

stmarys5k2013 (Taken from St. Mary’s 5k facebook page- https://www.facebook.com/fallclassic5k)

What started out as a simple idea just two short months ago transpired into a fun, amazing and successful event yesterday. The St.Mary’s Fall Classic Run/Walk had over 300 registrants, representing New York and a few all the way from Maryland! Most importantly, we were able to go beyond our goal and donate $8,000 to Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, to support blood cancer research. A lot of heart was put into the planning of this event and we owe it’s success to our St.Mary’s Family, our sponsors, and to YOU, the registrants. We are blown away by all the support, commitment and encouragement we have seen from everyone and the outcome was greater than what we even imagined. We truly hope you all had a positive experience and just can’t thank you enough!

We will be posting the Top 3 Men’s and Women’s times shortly. Also, we would also love to hear your feedback! A survey will be going out in the next week or so, but you may also submit any questions, concerns, suggestions to SMIOCR@gmail.com!
