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.

With the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan Evangelos, We are happy to announce that the Holy Apostles Greek Orthodox Church will reopen for Liturgy on Sunday, June 21st. We have been preparing for weeks in anticipation of being able to worship together again, and we must adhere to the requirements set forth by His Eminence Metropolitan Evangelos for a Three Phase Reopening Process (click here).

Reserve your seat for service in person or participate via live streaming on our YouTube Channel. 

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.
