Fifth Sunday of Great Lent / St. Mary of Egypt

In thee, O Mother, was preserved unimpaired that which is according to God’s image, /
for thou hast taken up the Cross and followed Christ. /
By thine actions thou hast taught us to despise the flesh, for it passes away, /
but to care for the soul, which is a thing immortal; //
and so thy spirit, holy Mary, rejoiceth with the angels.

Thou didst raise up Lazarus from the dead before Thy Passion. /

ACTIVITIES

Making A Difference

St. Andrew Orthodox Church is a mission parish dedicated to growing Eastern Orthodox Christianity in central Texas.  All are welcome to "come and see."  We are Orthodox, but not Jewish; Catholic, but not Roman.  We're not protestant, but the Bible came from us; we're not denominational - we're pre-denominational.  Proclaiming the Truth since 33AD.

In addition to the St. Andrew and the other Saints Who Shone forth in Scotland, our parish has a particular devotion to the Imperial Martyrs, particularly Tsar-Martyr Nicholas II.

St. Andrew's partners with Barking Dog Ranch to provide sustainably raised protein to the food insecure.  We are also working on providing ready-made food to the needy - including BBQ and pizza!

Raising Children in the Church

Children are the future of the Church, are very welcome at St. Andrew's.  We invite and encourage you to bring your children and let them explore the church space as they participate in worship. We have children's books and activities as well.

A Spirit of Service

There are volunteer opportunities both within the parish itself, and within the community we serve.  Please speak with Fr. Ignatius about what you can do to help!

Our food pantry protein supplier is the Barking Dog Ranch,  and they are always in need of volunteers.

We are proud to support our friends at the Hays-Caldwell Women's Shelter - please ask Matushka Apollonia how you can help!

Supporting our Community

The Brotherhood of Tsar-Martyr Nicholas II performs maintenance work on the parish and rectory.  Their key ministry is building coffins for those in need.

The Sisterhood of St. Xenia of St. Petersburg prepares the trapeza and cleans the parish.  Their key ministry is the food pantry & hygienic items.

Both groups host and participate in retreats at Holy Archangels Monastery in Kendalia.

ITEMS WE NEED FOR THE CHURCH

We are in need of the following items:

These are several items that we use on a regular basis that would really be helpful:

  • Wine - Nama Byzantio for Communion, we also can use tawny port for zapivka.
