This invitation marks the beginning of each day for the Orthodox Church. It comes from the office of Vespers, and it expresses the attitude which is at the heart of Orthodoxy. The Worship of God - the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is fundamental to the life and spirit of the Orthodox Church.
Since Worship is so important to Orthodoxy, the best introduction to the Orthodox Church is for the non-Orthodox to attend the Divine Liturgy or the celebration of one of the major Sacraments. At first, the visitor may be overwhelmed by the music and the ceremonies, but it is in Worship that the distinctive flavor, rich traditions, and living faith of Orthodoxy are truly experienced.
We celebrate the Divine Liturgy every Sunday thorughout the year, as well as weekday Liturgies for the major feastdays. Each Sunday, Orthros begins at 8:15am followed by the Divine Liturgy at 9:30am. Coffee Hour follows Sunday Liturgy. Weekday services are at 9:30am when scheduled. Please see the Parish calendar for specific weekday service dates.
