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.

Remembering our Veterans in a Special Way


Memory Eternal is what we say when someone passes. Remembering our loved one is important but what happens when the immediate family passes as well. Who remembers? For those buried at Greenlawn in the Holy Transfiguration section, there is a Memorial Service annually. Each grave is blessed. Each name is said in prayer. They are remembered by the Church forever.

Wreaths Across America is a national organization that remembers veterans each year by placing a  wreath at the veterans grave,  on the third Saturday of December. It becomes an opportunity to say thank you, Memory Eternal, to those who served their country. Several members of the church have begun the research at Greenlawn in the Holy Transfiguration section to find and honor our veterans.

Seven veterans have been identified as serving their country : Bobby Bates, George Bilson, Robert Botni, George Gianaris, Christ Hondras, Peter Rumanes, and Damianos Tsifopoulos.

If your loved one served in the military and is buried in the Holy Transfiguration section of Greenlawn, please tell Kate Sklikas <kate.sklikas@gmail.com>. Kate will make sure your veteran has a wreath in December.

Will you honor one of our veterans by purchasing a wreath at the Wreaths Across America site www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/164153 ? Extra wreaths will be distributed to Kennesaw City Cemetery, Bascomb Methodist, Shiloh Cemetery,  and the Georgia National Cemetery in Canton to honor the veterans in those cemeteries.

If your loved one served in the military but is not buried at Greenlawn, you may have a wreath placed at their grave anywhere in the country by going to the Wreaths Across America site www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/164153.

Let us Honor and Remember those who served.

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).

Fr. Michael’s Elevation to Confessor & Oikonomos, Sunday, April 4, 2021

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)
