Joining Our Parish - Those of the Orthodox Faith interested in joining our parish are welcome to attend services and contact us about becoming a parish member.
Eucharist - Holy Communion, the principal sacrament mystery of the Orthodox Church, is not so much a text to be studied, but rather an experience of communion with the Living God in which prayer, music, gestures, the material creation, art and architecture come into full orchestration. The Eucharist is a celebration of faith which touches not only the mind but also the emotions and the senses.
Baptism - The Sacrament
of Baptism incorporates us into the Church, the Body of Christ, and is our
introduction to the life of the Holy Trinity. Water is a natural symbol of
cleansing and newness of life.
Marriage - God is active
in our lives. It is He who joins a man and a woman in a relationship of mutual
love. The Sacrament of Marriage bears witness to His action. Through this
Sacrament, a man and a woman are publicly joined as husband and wife. They
enter into a new relationship with each other, God, and the Church.
Funerals - It is
traditional for Greek Orthodox to say to the bereaved, 'May you have an
abundant life', and 'May their memory be eternal'. There is usually an open
casket at the ceremony. Traditionally, when Greek Orthodox view the body, they
bow in front of the casket and kiss an icon or cross placed on the chest of the
deceased. At the graveside, there is a prayer ceremony and each person present
places one flower on the casket. A memorial service is held on the Sunday
closest to the 40th day after the death.
Ladies Philoptochos -
for women of all ages. The Philoptochos provides comfort and companionship for
the less fortunate and supports our church in all its endeavors. This group
works not only for the local parish, but for many philanthropic projects at the
Diocesan and Archdiocesan level as well. While sponsoring social functions,
church related activities, and philanthropic fund raisers, the women form
lasting friendships. For more information
