St. Elias Orthodox Church
Fasting and Nutrition - Retreat

September 15, 2018

Everyone is invited, both parishioners and non-parishioners

Please invite your friends!


Fr. Richard Flom and his wife Mat. Cassiane of the OCA Archdiocese will be putting on a retreat here at St. Elias about Fasting and Nutrition. They are both retired MDs

Fr. Richard will focus on fasting as a whole-life practice, involving much more than just certain foods.  He will be referring to the Philokalia and other writings of the Fathers in his talk.

Mat. Cassiane will be speaking about the problems with the American diet and the disease burden resulting from it; she will also talk about making healthier choices of food.

Introduction to Orthodoxy Class "A Journey to Fullness"

Tuesday, September 4, 2018 through December 18, 2018 (6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.)

Everyone is invited, both parishioners and non-parishioners

Please invite your friends!

"A Journey to Fullness" is an outreach tool for parishes like ours seeking a consistent, practical means of engaging people who want to learn more about the Orthodox Faith. Comprising sixteen 20-minute video sessions, "A Journey to Fullness" is the first step along the path to becoming a catechumen. It’s designed for use in the parish, Sunday School class, small group, youth group, Adult Education group, and other settings where you need a systematic way to educate people about the basics of the Orthodox Faith.

Another successful Heritage Night is under our belt.  Check out the live action from Dennis below:

Herritage Night - 2010
Heritage Night was a wonderful success this year. Being my first year participating in it, I was very pleased with our participation. Everyone had a great time. Besides making some money for our parish, we make our church known to the community. This we succeeded at. Several people expressed a desire to learn more about Orthodoxy and our church. I am looking forward to more community events for the St. Elias parish.

Fr. Dionysios

A note of thanks from our chair of the event follows:

Dear members and friends of St. Elias,

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their efforts with Heritage Night. Our involvement in this community activity has again demonstrated that we can be a vibrant and meaningful part of the LaCrosse area. Most importantly we came together and enjoyed the variety of cultures represented, including the wonderful diversity reflected at St Elias. A special thanks to those who volunteered for the first time and made special arrangements in their schedules to be with us. We need you and are truly appreciative of your contributions! We also thank those who helped out in advance but could not join us in during the event.

Again much thanks and appreciation to everyone,

Dick Markos
