November 10th, 2011 Dear Visitors to the St. Demetrios Parish, It is with deep gratitude that I welcome you on behalf of all the parishioners of the St. Demetrios Parish. If you are visiting with us this year for the ďŹ rst time, we are eager to welcome you, and if you have been part of St. Demetrios' Festival Family in previous years, we are overjoyed to renew our friendship with you. Our festival would not be famed for its delightful and warm atmosphere had you not been part of its family by giving us the joy and pleasure to host you. The St. Demetrios Parish stands ready and truthful to its mission of bringing love, peace, and joy to the world. Frequent prayers are lifted up regularly inside our church building for the entire world. Many local and national philanthropic and educational organizations are supported through our various functions and fundraisers. It is our hope that, together with your help, we can make our world a bit of a better place for as many people as possible. As you visit our festival, please make time to stop by our sanctuary. You may want to enjoy one of our church tours, spend some quiet time by yourself with God, or write down your name so that we may pray for you or someone whom you love. May God's grace and mercy be upon you,

Saint Demetrios His Life: Saint Demetrios was born in Thesaloniki, Greece in 270 AD. He came from a wealthy family and because he was athletic in appearance and heroic in spirit, he became a high-ranking officer in the Roman Army at a very young age. (This is why he is depicted in Byzantine icons in military dress, either standing or riding a horse.) He considered himself a soldier of Christ first, and a military soldier second. He spent most of his time as a devout missionary, preaching the Gospel at secret meetings and converting pagans to the Christian faith. At one of these meetings, he was captured and placed in front of the Emperor Maximian, who wanted to learn the truth about the conversions. Saint Demetrios proclaimed his faith by saying: “...only in Christ do I believe.” With that proclamation, Maximian ordered that Saint Demetrios be sent to prison and subjected to the cruelest tortures. Even though Saint Demetrios was imprisoned, he did not stop preaching the gospel to those who came to see him. In jail, he was visited by his follower, Nestoras. Nestoras was a man of small stature and had come to ask for his beloved teacher’s blessing to fight in the upcoming gladiator games. The emperor had decided to use the games as a duel between Christianity and paganism by challenging any Christian to a fight against the athletic giant, Leo.With the blessing of Saint Demetrios, Nestoras fought and killed Leo. Enraged at the loss of his favorite gladiator, the emperor commanded that Nestoras be beheaded on the spot. Recognizing that Saint Demetrios was the inspiring power behind Nestoras, the emperor ordered that Saint Demetrios be executed by spear on October 26, 306 AD Christians buried the body of Saint Demetrios at the place of his execution and because of the beautiful scent that emanated from his tomb, he was named Mirovlitis or “The Myrrh Gusher”.
