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!
Note on Partaking of Holy Communion at evening Liturgy:
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.
"The Kingdom of God is not food and drink, but righteousness and ascetic practice and holiness; therefore rich men will never enter it, but only those who place their treasures into the hands of the needy. This is what David the Prophet teaches when he says, "Righteous is the man, who is merciful day in and day out, who delights in the Lord. He walks in the light; he will not stumble." All of this was written for our edification, that, while fasting, we do acts of kindness; and the Lord will give us, instead of earthly gifts, the things of heaven."
-- Hymn from the Sunday of St. Mary of Egypt

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).
