* 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.
May the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with us all.
Welcome Father Cosmas, Presvytera Michelle, and Family!
We are blessed to have you join our Holy Apostles family.
May God enrich our lives together as we worship and serve Him. Father Cosmas Halekakis not only has extensive pastoral experience to include building a new church and developing religious education, but also a young family that we look forward to engaging with and strengthening our ministries and parish, both at church and online. Fr. Cosmas is excited about the opportunity to take our church into the next phase of our growth.
