Please be reminded that out of respect for what goes on during the Divine Liturgy, there are certain time when not to enter the Nave. These times are: 1) between the readings of the Epistle and Gospel; 2) when the priest censes the icons and the congregation; and 3) whenever the priest faces the congregation to bless them. When entering the Nave, please enter by the side aisles and not by the middle isle. Stanchions will be placed at the middle isle in order to prevent anyone from entering the Nave from the middle isle. When the Parish Council Members ask that no one enter at a particular time, please heed their request. It is disruptive to the other worshipers when someone enters the Nave at an inappropriate time. Everyone’s cooperation is appreciated.
Recitation of the Lord's Prayer
Please remember that everyone has the opportunity to say the Lord’s Prayer in their first language. The order of languages is: Greek, English, Spanish, Russian, Ukrainian, Romanian, and Arabic.
Welcome to our Guests
Father John and the members of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church offer warm greetings to all our guests. We are happy to have you worshiping with us and we hope that you will make this your spiritual home in the future. You are invited to receive blessed bread (antidoron) which will be given out at the end of today’s services. Please join us downstairs for refreshments so we can visit with you.
The Holy Communion of the Orthodox is the Holy Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is with awe and love that we approach the Divine Mysteries. Therefore, the Communion of the Orthodox is reserved only for those baptized and chrismated Orthodox Christians who have prepared themselves by prayer and fasting, as prescribed by the Canons of the Holy Church. Women, in respect of our Lord, please remove lipstick before you approach to receive, in order that no oils contact the Holy Spoon or the Holy Chalice.
