Church-10-11-2014-IMG_0951-small

We are a Greek Orthodox parish, part of the oldest Christian tradition dating back to 33 A.D., the day of Pentecost. 
We trace our roots back to the Apostles and their teachings.
We are a stronghold of the moral, theological, liturgical and spiritual traditions of the Early Church.
We invite you to come and join us to experience the worship of Early Christianity in a modern setting.

Special Instructions for Attending Church Services

Beginning on Sunday, April 25, we have further relaxed the COVID restrictions. We have opened all the pews for our parishioners, but we are restricting the number of people in the sanctuary to 250. We are not taking temperatures any more, but we are asking people to sign in for tracing purposes.

The overflow, after we reach 250 people in the main church, will be directed to the Parish Hall, where a live stream of the service will be projected on the white screen.

We also ask our parishioners to attend weekday services when there are less people.

You can download the updated instructions from our Metropolis here: Instructions for Attending Church Services

Injustice, Racism and Violence of any form are condemned

We stand in unequivocal solidarity and peaceful protest with all those who condemn racism and inequality, which betray the spirit of freedom and human dignity in our nation, i.e.“one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”.

All human beings are made in the image of God and are of equal value no matter where they were born and what the color of their skin might be. Racism destroys the soul of the racist and reduces the recipients of his/her hatred to less than human.

The unjust and unjustifiable death of any person whether black, brown or white, and especially when in the custody of those entrusted with the enforcement of Law and Order, is deplorable and leads to oppression.

At the same time, we denounce all expressions of violence and revenge, including those despoiling and detracting from peaceful demonstrations. Peaceful marches of protest are a distinctive hallmark of American freedom and their exploitation by anarchists is a desecration of our freedom.

Above all, let us heed to the call of St. Paul: “Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all … so far as it depends upon you, live peaceably with all” (Romans 12:17-18).

The Lord is our Shepherd

 The Lord’s sheep will find the Lord’s pastures. Those who follow Christ with an undivided heart will be nourished in pastures that are forever green. And what are such pastures if not the most profound joy of feeding in the everlasting fields of paradise? For the pasture of the saints is to see God face to face. When the vision of God never fades, the soul is filled with an abundance of food for eternal life.

And so dear friends, let us seek these pastures and join the throng of the citizens of heaven. Let their happiness and celebration be an invitation to us. Let our hearts grow warm; let our faith be rekindled; let our desire for the things of heaven increase; for to love in this way is indeed to be on the way. We should allow no misfortune to distract us from this happiness and deep joy; for if you are determined to reach the destination of your spiritual journey the roughness of the road will not deter you. Nor should the delights of material prosperity in this life ever entice you astray; only the foolish traveler, spotting a pleasant ?eld on the way, forgets that he is en route to a greater destination.

— From a homily by Gregory the Great (540-604)
