As part of our outreach ministry, we are pleased to announce that divine services at our church are now being streamed live on our Parish Website, Archiocese Smart TV app, and Parish Facebook! The purpose of this ministry is to provide an opportunity to view our church services for those who are not physically able to make it to services, like shut-ins and college students away from home, as well as people interested in learning about our precious Orthodox Christian Faith. Again, this is not a substitute for those who are able to come to church.
Recordings of the Sunday Homily will still be posted to our YouTube channel.

Every Divine Liturgy, the priest uses a special bread, called Prosforo, to prepare the Holy Eucharist. The priest cuts the bread in a special way and prays to God, the Theotokos, the saints, the prophets, and the angels for their prayers and intercessions… The priest also prays for all those living and those who have passed away. Following the Divine Liturgy, the remainder is handed out to all the people.
This bread is a beautiful offering by an individual or a family. The Church is always in need of Prosfora.
Please contact the Church Office for the recipe and to schedule a time to bring Prosfora.

Hellenic College Holy Cross, Greek Orthodox School of Theology
Hellenic College Holy Cross is a rare institution of higher learning with a higher purpose. Hellenic College Holy Cross serves the Archdiocese and the world by training and educating clergy, theologians, and lay leaders in their undergraduate and graduate studies. You can learn more about Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Theological School by visiting their website, www.hchc.edu
Ionian Village is not just another summer camp; it is like nothing you have ever experienced. The campers and Staff come not only to understand their Orthodox Faith and Hellenic Culture in a more realistic and tangible way, but also to meet and interact with other young people just like them from all over the country. Through this interaction, their eyes are opened as to what the reality of being an Orthodox Christian in this world truly should be: to be people who live Christ-centered lives, to be people of love. "
St. John Chrysostom Oratorical Festival
Introduced in 1983, the St. John Chrysostom Oratorical Festival provides Greek Orthodox teenagers the opportunity to write about and defend their faith. The purpose of the St. John Chrysostom Oratorical Festival is to give teenagers an opportunity to learn, write, and speak about their Orthodox Christian Faith, Church, and Heritage. This process will enhance their understanding and appreciation of their identity as Greek Orthodox Christians and cultivate spiritual growth and maturity. The overall Oratorical program is called an Oratorical Festival rather than a contest to minimize the competitive spirit and emphasize a joyful learning experience.
What does it mean to travel the road of the Cross of Christ in your life, for your life?
