Sunday Hours

* Orthros & Divine Liturgy - 9:00 am *

Welcome!

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.

Reserve your seat to worship with us in person or view online via live streaming on our YouTube Channel.  Click here to read the requirements set forth by His Eminence Metropolitan Evangelos for in person attendance.

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.
