VISITORS

Whether you are new to Orthodox Christianity or are visiting from another Orthodox parish, we would be honored by your visit and warmly welcome you to join us. 

 

A FEW NOTES FOR FIRST TIME VISITORS

‚Äč

We won’t make a public spectacle of you or ask you to do anything uncomfortable.

 

We lay no expectation on visitors of financial contribution to our parish’s ministries.


We love kids! Our children worship together with us—they are not segregated out during our services. If your child is struggling or needs a break, please do not feel embarrassed to make a visit to the narthex until the child is ready to rejoin everyone else in worship.

 

All of our services are held in English

 

We would love to meet you. Please join us for coffee hour after the Mass and introduce yourself to our pastor, Father Patrick.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS FOR YOUR VISIT

HOLY COMMUNION

We invite all Orthodox Christians who are duly prepared to receive Holy Communion.  Proper preparation includes faithful fasting, recent confession, being at peace with others, and being on time to the divine services. If you are uncertain if you are blessed to receive communion, please wait until you have spoken with Father Patrick.
