Welcome

If this is your first time visiting our site, or our Church, we welcome you!  This page contains some basic information about our parish and Orthodox worship for those who haven’t experienced it yet.

To start with, we want you to know at least this much:

You are welcome here. We are always honored to have visitors join us for prayer and worship.

You won’t be asked to do anything which would make you uncomfortable.

We don’t expect visitors to contribute anything to the financial support of our parish. Though you are welcome to if you feel moved to do so!

Our children worship with us. If you have young children, they are welcome here, too. If you need to step to the back of the Church with your child for any reason, you are not disturbing us. We expect Christian children to be raised in the Church and to do that, they have to be in the Church.

If you are an Orthodox Christian, and you have prepared yourself to receive Holy Communion according to your Spiritual Father’s direction, be sure to introduce yourself to Fr. Nikolai before the service. You are welcome to approach the chalice. If you are not Orthodox, simply enjoy the service, and enter into the ancient prayer of the Church, but please refrain from approaching the chalice, as doing so is reserved for Orthodox Christians under spiritual direction.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our Church. If you have any questions after the service, don’t be afraid to ask!
