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 liturgical directive issued by His Eminence Metropolitan Evangelos and the social distancing guidelines; he will continue conducting services but only with a chanter in attendance. 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.

Christ is Risen

Message from Father George Alexson: The week following the Resurrection of our Lord is known as Bright Week (Διακαινήσιμος εβδομάδα). As explained by the Weblog, Mystagogy, Bright Week, otherwise known as Renewal Week, begins on Pascha Sunday and ends on the following Sunday of Thomas. The name probably originates from the fact that the newly baptized catechumens from Pascha are newly illumined and bright. For them it is a time of regeneration and renewal.  READ MORE
