Resurrectional Apolytikion
Tone Four
The women disciples of the Lord learned from the angels
The joyous proclamation of the Resurrection,
And the abolition of the ancestral sentence;
And with pride they announced to the Apostles:
Death is despoiled Christ our God has arisen,
Bestowing to the world the great mercy.
Festal Apolytikion
As You were baptized in the Jordan, O Lord,
then the worship of the Trinity became manifest,
for the voice of the Father bore witness to You,
naming You the Beloved Son;
and the Spirit, in the form of a dove,
confirmed the certainty of the Word.
O Christ God, Who appeared and illumined the world,
glory to You.
Church Hymn (Troparion of Pentecost)
Blessed are You O Christ our God
Who has shown the fishermen as wise men
By sending down Your Holy Spirit upon them
And through them, the whole world You drew into Your
net
O Lover of mankind, glory to You.
Kondakion
You appeared today to us on earth,O Master, and Your light
was signed on us who cry aloud to You and say with
understanding, O Christ our God:
You came and shone forth, O Light unapproachable.
EPISTLE READING
St. Paul's Letter to the Ephesians 4:7-13
BRETHREN, grace was given to each of us according to the measure of Christ's gift.
Therefore it is said, "When he ascended on high he led a host of captives, and he gave gifts
to men." (in saying, "He ascended," what does it mean but that he had also descended into
the lower parts of the earth? He who descended is he who also ascended far above all the
heavens, that he might fill all things.) And his gifts were that some should be apostles,
some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the
work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the
faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the
stature of the fullness of Christ.
GOSPEL READING
The Gospel of Matthew 4:12-17
At that time, Jesus heard that John had been arrested, He withdrew into Galilee; and leaving
Nazareth He went and dwelt in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: "The land of Zebulun and
the land of Naphtali, toward the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles, the people
who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow
of death light has dawned." From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, "Repent, for the
kingdom of heaven is at hand."
THE CONFESSION OF FAITH
(Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed)
I believe in one God, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and of all things visible
and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all
ages;
Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten, not created, of one essence with the Father
through Whom all things were made.
Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven and was incarnate of the Holy
Spirit and the Virgin Mary and became man.
He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried;
And He rose on the third day, according to the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father;
And He will come again with glory to judge the living and dead. His kingdom shall have no
end.
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Creator of life, Who proceeds from the Father, Who together with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, Who spoke through the
prophets.
In one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the age to come.
Amen.
HOLY COMMUNION
Holy Communion is the Body and Blood of our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Saint John of
Kronstadt (1829 – 1908) says, “in partaking of
the Holy Sacrament, be as sure that you
partake of the Body and Blood of Christ, as you
are sure that every moment you breathe air.”
Saint Cyril of Jerusalem (about 313 – 386) also
teaches us “Since Christ Himself has declared
the bread to be His Body, who can have any
further doubt? Since He Himself has said
quite categorically, ‘This is My Blood,’ who
would dare to question it, and say that it is not
His Blood? Therefore, it is with complete
assurance that we receive the bread and wine
as the Body and Blood of Christ. His Body is
given to us under the symbol of bread, and His Blood is given to us under the symbol of
wine, in order to make us by receiving them one body and blood with Him. Having His Body
and Blood in our members, we become bearers of Christ and sharers, as Saint Peter says, of
the divine nature … Do not then regard the Eucharistic elements as ordinary bread and
wine: they are in fact the Body and Blood of the Lord, as He Himself has declared.
Whatever your senses tell you, be strong in faith.”
The Lord urges us to make a sincere effort to make peace with each other when anger or
hurt exists, seeking forgiveness or granting forgiveness, as appropriate, (Matthew 5:24)
before approaching the Lord.
Receiving Holy Communion is certainly important to our spiritual life and growth. This
ultimate connection with Jesus Christ is a gift which God gives to us and one which should
be accepted gratefully and responsibly. Our Church teaches that receiving Holy Communion
frequently is encouraged. Our Church also teaches that a preparation is expected.
Preparation for Holy Communion can vary from person to person. The minimum
preparation to receive Holy Communion is to fast from meat on Wednesday and Friday and
not eat anything on the morning, prior to receiving Holy Communion. For those who must
take medication that requires food, they are permitted to eat that which is necessary for
their health.
Furthermore, the Church teaches us to fast on particular days during the year and especially
during the four main fast periods. These four main fast periods are in preparation of holy
days of the year, as follows:
13 – 24 December (Nativity of our Lord)
Great Lent (before Holy Week and Easter)
Monday after All Saints’ Day through 28 June (the Apostles),
1 – 14 August (the Dormition of the Theotokos)
Each of us is encouraged to approach the Chalice to receive Holy Communion in love and in
peace, gratefully and responsibly.
Sunday Service Schedule and Teams
When coming to Church on Sundays, families oftentimes disperse to fulfill commitments and
duties. While these commitments and duties are important, Father Bill has set a priority of having
families worship God together.
To facilitate this, a schedule has been created so that family members who volunteer on Sundays
will be assigned to serve on the same Sundays as their family members.

Holy Trinity Stewardship 2014
For blank 2014 Stewardship Forms or to make a pledge donation online, go to
www.holytrinityindy.org/stewardship
To set up automatic monthly payments, please contact the Parish Office at 317733-3033. When 225 Stewardship 2014 Forms are received, a Parish Directory
will be printed.
Q: How can you give less and more at the same time?
A: Stock transfer
By giving a gift of stock to the church you avoid capital gains tax and the church receives the
full value of the stock.
Example: You have 10 shares of stock purchased for $20/share. Total cost = $200.
Current value of the stock is $30/share. Total value = $300.
By donating the stock (transfer - do not sell and give cash) the church receives $300 and you
avoid the capital gains tax on the $100 increase. The full value of the donation ($300) would
be deductible.
ICONOGRAPHY IN PHASE 2
Iconographer Dr. George Kordis will be returning to
Holy Trinity to write additional iconography in our
Sanctuary. Donations are needed for the following
items:
ALTAR AREA
Church Father ($6,000): Saint Cyril of Alexandria
Deacon ($5,000): Saint Lawrence
Unique Icon ($3,000): Sacrifice of Abraham
CHOIR AREA
The Choir niche has two large icons, one of Moses
and the Burning Bush and the other of the Presentation of our Lord to the
Temple.
The Choir members are donating the one icon of Moses and the Burning Bush.
Parishioners are invited to donate to the icon of Presentation of our Lord to the
Temple. The only remaining larger person depicted in this icon is Symeon
($5,000).
MEDALLIONS
There are two “medallions” of Saints remaining on two arches.
The only remaining saint depicted in the arch above the Choir is Saint Joseph of
Thessaloniki.
The only remaining saint depicted in the arch above the Baptistery is Saint
Menas.
Each of these “medallion” Saints is $1,500 each.
Please contact Father Bill or the Parish Office at 317-733-3033 to donate one or
