It’s almost that time again! This Lent, join the St. Elia Prayer Group as we once again unite to pray the Psalms together throughout the fast, which for Orthodox Christians begins this year on March 7. You do not need to be a member of St. Elia Akron to join. All you need is a Bible and a little bit of time to set aside each day.
The prayer group also offers the opportunity for us to pray for one another, for our parish, and for any special intentions any of us may have. [Read more…]

Do you feel stuck? Do you want to make a change but don’t know where to start? Wellness and nutrition specialist Rita Madden is here to help!
Join us at St. Elia at 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 22, for a special webinar focused on guiding you through successful change utilizing the Holy Orthodox Tradition as the foundation.
We all have different areas that we need to work on; however, we can all utilize a behavior modification strategy that incorporates our faith and has been shown to help people make lasting change to address personal needs. Participants will be encouraged to participate in implementing processes into their day during the Nativity Fast (or at a different time if they choose) to help make sustainable and lasting habits to benefit their daily living. A bonus resource guide will be included that complements the workshop.
There are two different options for participation:
Cost: To watch at home there is suggested minimum donation of $6, to be paid when you register online. We request that you make a similar donation if you attend in-person. Proceeds cover Rita’s operating expenses and the remainder goes toward Orthodox Christian charities and mission projects.
About the host: Rita Madden (MPH, RDN) lives in Honolulu, Hawaii, and is the nutrition director for Mediterranean Wellness, a company that focuses on sensible weight loss/management and chronic disease prevention/management. She is the author of “Food, Faith, and Fasting: A Sacred Journey to Better Health” and hosts a podcast of the same name on Ancient Faith Radio.
