Saints and Feasts

August 07

The Holy Righteous Martyr Dometius

This Martyr, who lived during the reign of Saint Constantine the Great, was a Persian by race and an idolater by religion. He was catechized by a certain Christian named Abarus. He went to Nisibis, a city of Mesopotamia, where he was baptized and donned the monastic habit in a certain monastery. He afterwards ascended a mountain and there endured in extreme ascetical struggles, working miracles for those that came to him, and converting many unbelievers. Julian the Apostate learned of these things as he was marching against the Persians in 363, and at his command the Saint and his two disciples were stoned to death, as they were chanting the Sixth Hour.



Memorial Service/Μνημόσυνo


Today we pray for the repose of the soul of the servant of God Leonidas Dimou (40 days). May his memory be eternal.



August, is the time to celebrate Panagia’s name day (Aug. 15). We will continue our tradition with our dessert buffet on August 14th following Vespers. This is your opportunity to bring your best Lenten dessert to share with our community and guests and to show your love to our church.



FESTIVAL TIME is just around the corner and Long Beach Festival is truly known for its authentic baked goods. What this means is, baking time is ahead. It is because of your hands and heart that we are so successful. Join the baking team and have fun, learn new recipes and meet new people.
