Liturgical Ministries

 "They devoted themselves to the Apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And fear came upon every soul; and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common; and they sold their possessions and goods and distributed them to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they partook of food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.

(Acts of the Apostles 2:42-457)


Orthodox Christians believe that God reveals Himself in Holy Tradition and Scripture, both of which include, report, describe, and inform worship. Participation in the sacramental life of the Church is indispensable for an Orthodox Christian. The liturgical life of the Church is not simply a schedule of activities or a free-for-all, subject to our tastes and whims. Rather, it is the timeless, living expression of the mystery and immanent-transcendent work of our Creator and Savior, now available for all who desire “to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the Truth” (1 Tim. 2). It has been provided for us by the Father, made accessible by the Son, and activated by the Holy Spirit, out of inexhaustible love.

We strive to offer rich worship faithful to the inherited tradition of the Greek Orthodox Church. In addition to the traditional liturgical rubrics, ministrations, chanting, and so on, we also attempt to create a welcoming and safe environment for our faithful and for visitors alike.
