* Orthros & Divine Liturgy - 9:00 am *
Orthodoxy touches many lands and many languages.
Whatever your background, we are glad of your interest and bid you peace in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We invite you to work and pray with us in giving glory to God the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
All are welcome!
Please keep in mind and practice the rule of abstaining from any drink or food from noon until Communion is offered when participating in Holy Communion at evening Liturgy. Those who are ill or on medications are not required to observe this rule strictly. However, even they should abstain at least an hour or two before the beginning of Liturgy.
Effective May 28, 2021, reservations will no longer be required to attend in-person church services per the new executive order by Virginia Governor Northam.
Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear masks, however non vaccinated individuals are recommended to continue wearing masks per the CDC guidelines.
