Eucharist for Those Not Currently Attending Services
For those who are uncomfortable attending the Liturgy in person during the pandemic, Father Daniel will be offering the Eucharist at 11:30am each Sunday at the front door.
City-wide Mask Order
The City of Waco has mandated that masks be worn in all businesses and public spaces. It is imperative that all precautions be taken while we are experiencing this increase in COVID cases in our community, so we kindly ask that you wear a mask to church if you are able.
With schools and universities and other activities opening up, the Metropolis and the Archdiocese remind us to keep track of any coronavirus-like symptoms and to report any positive test results to the Parish, so that others can go get tested and self-isolate. Thank you for your care and concern in this matter.
Stewardship is caring for the needs of others.
Stewardship is offering one's self to God as He offered Himself to us.
Stewardship is what a person does after saying "I believe..." as proof of that belief.
- Williams and McKibben in Oriented Leadership
Please pick up your stewardship cards for 2021 and return as soon as possible to the church office or to Johnny Giotes.
Because of the pandemic, our monthly meals have been put on hold. We deeply regret that this is necessary, but we do look forward to resuming this time of fellowship as soon as it safe.
"We should pray for our neighbors not because God does not know how to save them, but because He wants us to participate in one another’s salvation." - Metropolitan Hilarion

Orthodox Campus Fellowship
OCF is a ministry for college students that meets on Thursdays at 6:30pm. Please contact Father Daniel for more information.
Please sign up for the above duties on the wall calendar by the office door in the Parish Hall. The church needs all of you. Thank you for your faithfulness. Please keep it up. God will bless you.
Sacrament of Holy Communion (Non-Orthodox Visitors)
It is with the deepest regret that we ask you to abstain from receiving Holy Communion. This is a sacrament reserved only for those who are baptized, chrismated and prepared Orthodox Christians. It pains us to turn away a Christian who loves and worships the Lord Jesus, but because of the separation of the Christian churches and the different understanding we have about the Sacrament of Holy Communion, we ask you to abstain. Do come and receive the blessed bread at the conclusion of the service.
We are happy to have you worshiping with us today. Please stay and join us for coffee hour after the Divine Liturgy so that we may meet you.
