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


Weekly Message

Spend Time to listen to God and enjoy His Blessings

The people came to Jesus Christ in the desert to hear His teaching.  For He spoke with authority about what God required of His people.  The people  were so deeply absorbed in His teaching that the sun began to go down.  Jesus’ Disciples came to Him and asked Him to release the people to go to the surrounding villages to find something to eat.  But Jesus told them that they themselves should offer them supper.  They told Jesus  that they only had 5 loaves  of bread and  2 fish. How could they feed all of them?  

 Jesus knew what He was going to do.  So He told His Disciples to bring to Him the loaves and the fish.  Jesus looked up to His Father, Blessed them and started dividing them into pieces.  His disciples became His servers.  All the thousands of people ate and they also had leftovers.  Jesus told His Disciples to collect them so that nothing should go  wasted.

The moral teaching of this miracle is to teach us  to seek first to learn the will of God and then to put it into practice in our daily life; to share with our fellowman what God has offered us.  He then would multiply it to meet both our needs and the needs of the people; and we would also have something left over.

The liturgical Hymn. that we sing after the blessing of the five loaves, summarizes well God’s teaching to us:  “The rich became poor and went hungry;  but those who seek after the Lord  (and do God’s will) would never be deprived of anything.”

With love,

Fr. John P. Angelis

Afterfeast of the Transfiguration of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ


Hymns of the Day

Resurrectional Apolytikion in the Grave Tone

By Your Cross, O Christ our God, You destroyed death. You opened paradise to the thief. You transformed the lament of the Myrrh-bearing women, and You commanded the Apostles to proclaim You are risen, granting the world Your great mercy.

Apolytikion for Afterfeast of the Transfiguration in the Grave Tone

You were transfigured on the Mount, Christ God revealing Your glory to Your disciples, insofar as they could comprehend. Illuminate us sinners also with Your everlasting light, through the intercessions of the Theotokos. Giver of light, glory to You.

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 Grave Tone

You were transfigured upon the mount, O Christ our God, and Your disciples, in so far as they could bear, beheld Your glory. Thus, when they see You crucified, they may understand Your voluntary passion, and proclaim to the world that You are truly the effulgence of the Father.

Gospel and Epistle Readings

Epistle Reading

Prokeimenon. Grave Tone. Psalm 28.11,1.
The Lord will give strength to his people.
Verse: Bring to the Lord, O sons of God, bring to the Lord honor and glory.

The reading is from St. Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians 1:10-17.

Brethren, I appeal to you by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree and that there be no dissensions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. For it has been reported to me by Chloe's people that there is quarreling among you, my brethren. What I mean is that each one of you says, "I belong to Paul," or "I belong to Apollos," or "I belong to Cephas," or "I belong to Christ." Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispos and Gaius; lest any one should say that you were baptized in my name. (I did baptize also the household of Stephanas. Beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized any one else.) For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.

Gospel Reading

8th Sunday of Matthew
The Reading is from Matthew 14:14-22

At that time, Jesus saw a great throng; and he had compassion on them, and healed their sick. When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, "This is a lonely place, and the day is now over; send the crowds away to go into the villages and buy food for themselves." Jesus said, "They need not go away; you give them something to eat." They said to him, "We have only five loaves here and two fish." And he said, "Bring them here to me." Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass; and taking the five loaves and the two fish he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and broke and gave the loaves to the crowds. And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces left over. And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children. Then he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds.
