St. Nectarios Service Information

Overview of St. Nectarios Services

St. Nectarios Greek Orthodox Mission Church
627 West Bonneville St, Pasco WA 99301
Facebook: 'Saint Nectarios - Pasco Group'
Phone: (509) 547-3968.
St Nectarios has a mixture of in church and on-line Services. Each month, there are usualy two in-Church Services: a Saturday Divine Liturgy and a Sunday Typica Service.  The celebration of most on-line Services is conducted by Fr. John Angelis (in Seattle, WA) and the St. Nectarios Choir/Readers/Volunteers (in the Tri-Cities, WA). These on-line Services allows Father John to join us for Services without requiring travel to the Tricities.

The faithful may view/participate in the online Services on the Saint Nectarios-Pasco Group on Facebook.  Online Services will be streamed and posted after they are complete. For many of the Services, the text is included to help the faithful follow the Service. To view Saint Nectarios Services, pictures, and other postings on Facebook Group “Saint Nectarios – Pasco” use the link:

The long term goal for St. Nectarios - Pasco  is to have regular in-church Sunday Liturgy Services along with a Sunday School.    


Message from Father John




Jesus said to His first Disciples, “follow me!” 

Peter, Andrew and the sons of Zebedee, 

Left their nets, their boats and their father,

And followed Jesus immediately, to go farther.


Jesus did not promise His followers riches or glory;

He promised them, He’ll make them fishers of men, only. 

They believed Him and His promise,

And followed Him without other notice.

His words had authority and sincerity. 

They were pure, divine in their entirety.


They did not weigh logically their decision. 

What material consequences will suffer or derision. 

They were thirsting in their life for something better

And they discovered it in front of them, there.


They followed their Teacher from village to village, 

As He taught the words of life, not mere verbiage. 

He taught with Godly authority and also healed,

He loved the people, fed them and their illness healed.


The people followed Him eagerly by the droves.

On  the countryside and mountains and lake shores. 

Jesus rarely preached in Temples and Cathedrals. 

The open air, the mountains,, the lakes were His cathedrals.


He quoted from the Book of His Father, 

And He illustrated it powerfully from his other. 

The latter book His listeners knew better, 

Because they lived it daily, as the weather. 

God blessed their life with both of them. 

That’s why he sent also His beloved Son to them.


Our Church read this lesson to us this Sunday, 

To urge us to follow our Lord eagerly, also on Monday. 

Not to let possessions or persons to get in the way. 

To mislead us in life and cause us to lose God’s way.


The Apostles accepted and followed Christ’s call, 

And reached their glorious destination, as all. 

They have become our light and good example, 


With love,

Fr. John P. Angelis

Translation of the Holy Relics of our Father Among the Saints Philip, Metropolitan of Moscow

Today we also commemorate the translation of the holy and incorrupt relics of Saint Philip from the Monastery of Solovki, where he was Abbot, to the Cathedral of the Dormition in Moscow, his Metropolitan throne. This came to pass in 1652, some eighty years after his martyric death in Tver. (See also Jan. 9 and Oct. 5.)

Hyacinth the Martyr of Caesarea & Theodotos and Theodota the Martyrs

The Martyr Hyacinth, who was from Caesarea of Cappadocia, was the chamberlain of the Emperor Trajan. On being constrained by the Emperor to partake of the sacrifices offered to idols and not wishing to do so, he was shut up in prison without food, where he gave up his spirit to God in the year 108.


Hymns of the Day

Resurrectional Apolytikion in the Second Tone

When You descended to death, O Immortal Life, then, the light of Your divinity destroyed Hades. When You raised the dead from the depths of darkness, all the heavenly powers cried out, "Glory to You our Christ, the Giver of Life."

Apolytikion for the Church in the First Tone

The Offspring of Selyvria and Guardian of Aegina, the true friend of virtue who appeared in the last years. Oh Nectarios we faithful honor you as a godly servant of Christ! For you bring forth healings of every kind for those who piously cry out: Glory to Christ who has glorified you, Glory to him who made you wondrous, glory to him who workest healings for all through you.

Seasonal Kontakion in the Second Tone

O Protection of Christians that cannot be put to shame, mediation unto the creator most constant: O despise not the voices of those who have sinned; but be quick, O good one, to come unto our aid, who in faith cry unto thee: Hasten to intercession and speed thou to make supplication, O thou who dost ever protect, O Theotokos, them that honor thee.

Gospel and Epistle Readings

Epistle Reading

Prokeimenon. Second Tone. Psalm 117.14,18.
The Lord is my strength and my song.
Verse: The Lord has chastened me sorely.

The reading is from St. Paul's Letter to the Romans 5:1-10.

Brethren, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have obtained access by faith to this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in our hope of sharing the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us. While we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. Why, one will hardly die for a righteous man -- though perhaps for a good man one will dare even to die. But God shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we are now justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.

Gospel Reading

3rd Sunday of Matthew
The Reading is from Matthew 6:22-33

The Lord said, "The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is sound, your whole body will be full of light; but if your eye is not sound, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O men of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear? For the Gentiles seek all these things; and your heavenly Father knows you need them all. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well."
