We invite you to join us! Here’s our general schedule for each Sunday Service!
(please visit our full calendar for other service times.)
8:00 AM Matins Service (Gr. Orthos)
The morning matins service is a quieter service where attendees’ benefit from a contemplative atmosphere led by the priest and chanters. It begins with the reading of six psalms and continues with several hymns of the day, a Gospel reading, and more commemorations. Everything that is chanted worships God and teaches us about the lives of the Saints, or celebrates the festivities of the day.
9:30 AM The Divine Liturgy
The Divine Liturgy is a cooperative service where the congregation and choir join the Priest in singing prayers of worship to God.
Many things take place in this service including liturgical processions, the offerings of incense, the veneration of icons, the lighting of candles, several communal prayers, the partaking of blessed bread and of holy communion, and the invoking of the sign of the cross; all of which are ancient expressions of the Apostolic worship of God. Although not an end in themselves, these worship expressions are profoundly symbolic of much greater spiritual things. To learn more, please visit the Liturgical Worship page.
10:30 AM Holy Communion
Holy Communion is administered to baptized Orthodox Christians only, if you are not Orthodox, you may participate in everything else without concern. This includes receiving the blessed bread at the end of Divine Liturgy.
10:45 AM Sunday School
After Holy Communion, our youth leave for their religious education classes.
These classes generally follow the public school calendar, and include taking a summer break.
10:45 AM Sermon
A sermon is normally given after the reading of the Gospel to explain the Sacred Texts, but out of compassion for those who are unable to be present at that time, the sermon has been move to the close of services. To hear some of Fr. Dimitri’s and Fr. Simeon’s profound sermons, please visit our Sermons page.
11:00 AM Fellowship Hour
Immediately following the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy, we fellowship together in the Community Center next door. Please join us for coffee, food, and fellowship!
We’d love an opportunity to get to know you better, and to welcome you into our Parish family with open arms!
