Sunday Snapshot: Various Youth working, Cupola Raising, Our Lady of Czestochowa,

Dormition  Fast. 

Holy Seven Youths (the “Seven Sleepers”) of Ephesus: Maximilian, Jamblicus, Martinian, John, Dionysius, Exacustodian (Constantine) and Antoninus (250 & 5th c.). New Hieromartyr Cosmas of Aitolia, Equal to the Apostles (1779) (Greek).
St Martin the Merciful Russian Orthodox Church in Corvallis had a Work Party this past June. Youth from several parishes of different jurisdictions showed up to work together-what a great idea!

“The Youth Project surpassed all expectations, both in terms of the experiences of the youth involved, and the quality of the finished work.  Nineteen (19) youth, representing eight (8) parishes, took part in the event.  During the Project, substantial progress was also made on the landscaping irrigation system for the Church grounds (a special ‘thank you’ to Mr. Glenn Clinkenbeard for all his work designing and installing this system).  Recreational and spiritual activities were provided during the evenings and all day Thursday.  It was truly a blessing for everyone involved.  (Photos are from website click for more!)

Thank you to all who helped with the logistics of the event!” (quote from parish email emphasis editor)

The St. Martin parish is striving to complete its new Parish Hall by its feast day, October 25.  Donations are very welcome, online or otherwise (please contact the parish rector, Fr. James Baglien, at or 541-738-0600).
