"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7

Through this web site, we are pleased to be able to introduce you to that same worship and fellowship as it is expressed in the life of our Parish. If you are a new member of our parish, or are considering membership, these web pages will acquaint you with what our parish offers to those who give it support and sustenance; to those who already belong to the church, we hope they will provide you with the assurance that your sacrificial offerings are received with profound respect, and are utilized to maximum effectiveness. They will, in any case, enable you to make the informed decisions that are necessary for a meaningful relationship with your church!

Please take note of the additional services over the next two weeks, as we celebrate the Feast of Holy Transfiguration and also offer Paraklesis services in preparation for the Feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos. Fr. John Mamangakis at St. Nicholas and I have coordinated our respective schedules to allow both our parishes many opportunities to worship. Please join us, and let us ask our Most Holy Lady, the Theotokos, to intercede for us.
