This year we have a double blessing on May 9th - both the celebration of our Parish Name Day and the opportunity to offer our love and support to our beloved mothers on Mother's Day. Please register early to attend church services and our outdoor fellowship lunch. We are privileged to welcome Guest Clergy as well as Christopher's from outside our parish family. Chronia Polla to all our Christopher's and mothers, and prayers for many years of good health and joy to all our parishioners who support us today and help us build for future generations.
In faithful conformance with our Orthodox practice, Fr. George will offer three (3) consecutive weekly Memorial Services following the Sunday of the Prodigal Son (2/28/21). To accommodate our "Greece on the Go" event on Saturday, March 6th, Fr. George will pray the first Memorial Service following Great Vespers on Friday evening, March 5th.
Greetings and warm regards. The picture above portrays “The Mystical Icon of our Holy Church, depicting the persecutors and heretics, through the ages, who fight against her and prevail not.” Having begun the new year of 2021, it illustrates my pastoral concern that while we live in difficult and challenging times, as sons and daughters of the Incarnate Christ (represented by those on the ark with our Savior), we are called to witness His love, peace, mercy, and forgiveness amidst all evil, including the pandemic that continues. Through our faith and commitment to our Lord, Jesus Christ, we can overcome all obstacles leading to everlasting life in His Kingdom and hopefully draw those who do not believe into His Holy Body.
