Don’t miss the fun!
Our monthly parish newsletter, The Messenger, is back online. We’ve published past issues through 2016. If there is sufficient interest, we’ll be happy to publish older issues of the newsletter as well.
We’ve moved our archive of recorded sermons to an external podcast hosting service. This will allow a faster, more efficient listening experience. Over the next week, we’ll be uploading the sermons recorded since November, 2016. We hope you enjoy the new service.
5:00 PM / SATURDAY VESPERS
The word Vespers comes from the Greek word that means ‘in the evening,’ so this is the evening prayer service which thanks God for the day that is coming to a close and inaugurates the new day. Saturday night Great Vespers brings in the Lord’s Day and is therefore resurrectional in character.
8:30 AM / ORTHROS
The word Orthros, in Greek means 'sunrise' or 'dawn'. So the Orthros, or Matins Service is the sunrise worship service.
9:30 AM / DIVINE LITURGY
The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (c. 347-407), Archbishop of Constantinople, is the most prevalent of four ancient liturgies utilized by the early Church and still celebrated today.
