Sunday Hours

* Orthros - 8:45 am *

* Divine Liturgy - 10:00 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.

Father George is following the revised directive issued by the Ecumenical Patriarchate and forwarded by Metropolitan Evangelos to continue conducting services but only with a chanter in attendance. Starting with this week's Salutations service on Friday and Liturgy on Sunday, parishioners should view our services online via our Live Feed.

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.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Third Sunday of Lent

Message from Father George Alexson: Today, Sunday, March 22nd, we stand at the mid-point of our Lenten journey. Very few of us, if any, have ever experienced what we are now going through in the face of this dreadful pandemic. Never before in the fifty years of my priesthood have I had to celebrate liturgical services in an empty church. READ MORE

Choir Appeal

We hear you proudly singing in the pews every week, and you have wonderful voices!  I'd like to invite you up front on Sundays to help us sing.  If you can read music (even a little) and/or if you have a good ear (you find yourself singing along, even when you are outside of Church), please join us.  Come one, come all - and all ages are welcome (encourage your young teens and kids too).

- Bret Lansdell
