Christ is Risen!

Journey with us as we follow the Risen Christ and seek to grow in Him. Our 'Pascha to Pentecost' Resource Section is a good place to start, with special articles and media for this holy season where, 'Now all is filled with light!' And we hope you'll join us at our divine services... 'Come and see...!'


In our prayers and services we do not offer the opening prayer to the Holy Spirit, "O Heavenly King, O Comforter," until Pentecost! Instead we sing "Christ is Risen from the dead, trampling down death by death! And upon those in the tombs bestowing life!" This Paschal Troparion is sung until Ascension Thursday.

THE HOURS OF PASCHA  - The special prayers prescribed to be read in place of the usual Morning and Evening Prayers, the Hours, and the Prayers of Thanksgiving After Holy Communion from Pascha Sunday to Thomas Sunday. 

PASCHA MEDITATIONS, by our pastor, Fr. Steven Kostoff.  Fr. Steven's own meditations, interspersed with brief insights from saints and fathers of the Orthodox Church, present a golden thread through the Paschal Season, nowhere more evident than in this featured article:


Indeed He is Risen!




We are pleased to have hosted noted author and speaker, Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick, for our recent Autumn Retreat. Fr Andrew delivered two talks on 'The Church In & After the Scriptures', on October 21 & 22, 2016.
