It is always helpful to remind ourselves of how we are practicing our Orthodox Faith. At the heart of that "practice" is our preparation for, and reception of, the Eucharist.  Therefore, I have attached a document dealing with our preparation, so that it be in a "worthy manner."  This article goes into some depth in explaining the meaning and purpose behind preparing to receive Holy Communion.   These are meant to be guidelines that assist in creating a "eucharistic discipline" rather than an air-tight set of "rules" that are meant to be legalistically adhered to. Please contact me with any questions...

THE LORD'S DAY - Regular Cycle of Services

9:10am - Hours of Prayer

The Third and Sixth Hours of Prayer on Sunday are comprised of psalms and hymns centering on the Resurrection of Christ. Begin your Sundays with us during this quiet and moving service.

9:30am - Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom

The pinnacle of Orthodox Christian worship, the Divine Liturgy makes every Sunday a 'mini-Pascha', as we meet, worship and enter into communion with the Risen Christ!

6:00pm - Great Vespers and Confessions

Begin the Lord's Day with the beautiful and holy traditional evening service of the Church.
