We ask that the doors of the Narthex be closed and no one enters the Church during the following portions of the service:
Epistle, Gospel, Sermon, Great Entrance, Creed, Consecration, and Lord's Prayer
Please be respectful of the prayer and attention of those who are in the Church as you enter.
When it is time for Holy Communion, please remain in your pews until the members of the Parish Council come to your pew to usher you forward by row. In this way, we can ensure that our approaching of the Sacred Mysteries will be accomplished in an appropriate and orderly manner.

Lost & Found
Looking for something you lost? Check out our Lost & Found box in the coat room at the entrance to the Church.
This summer we will begin a new push to beautify the Church. We have a number of items that will be replaced, for which we already have prospective donors, but we plan to purchase altar cloth sets in several colors to allow us to adorn the Church appropriately for every liturgical season. Depending on the period of the Church year, the Holy Table and other Church furniture are to be covered in red, blue, white, green, gold, or purple cloths, of which we currently only have red (burgundy) and blue.
A complete set of altar cloths includes the large cloth to cover the Holy Table inside the altar, a smaller cloth for the Gospel, the set of cloths for the chalice and paten, include the Aer, the four cloths for the icon stands (proskynitaria) at the front of the Church, and then two cloths for the proskynitaria in the Narthex, with two small covers for the children's icons in the Narthex.
There are two levels of donations that we need, one smaller donation, and one larger. The smaller is to complete the burgundy and blue velvet altar cloth sets that we have, which currently do not include the four cloths for the Narthex. The larger is for the four sets that we currently lack, in white, green, gold, and purple.
The cost for completing each of the sets we currently have is $1,070.
The costs for the new sets vary, depending on whether the brocade cloth being used uses real metal threads or not. For beauty and durability, we will be purchasing real metal brocade for the white, the gold, and the purple altar cloth sets, while for the green, as it is used less frequently, we will purchase a brocade that does not use real metal threads. The cost for a complete altar cloth set in real metal brocade is $3,045, while the cost for a complete altar cloth set in normal brocade is $2,435.
Therefore we need the following donations:
Red velvet completion set: $1,070
Blue velvet completion set: $1,070
Green normal brocade complete altar cloth set: $2,435
Gold real metal brocade complete altar cloth set: $3,045
White/silver real metal brocade complete altar cloth set: $3,045
Purple real metal brocade complete altar cloth set: $3,045
If you are interested in donating any of these items, please contact the Church office or speak with Fr. Anthony. If you would like to see the fabric swatches we have selected for each color, please speak with Fr. Anthony.
