"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!
GREEK FOOD FESTIVAL

Christ Is Risen!
By: + Father Andrew Mahalares
DAILY VITAMINS FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH
CHRIST IS RISEN! SO WHAT?
I heard a person say once, “Christ is risen. So What?”
Let me give you an answer to that “So What?”
Christ is risen! Because Christ is risen, then all is well. I have nothing to worry about. Because Christ is risen, and all my sins are forgiven.
Because Christ is risen, all graves are empty. “Why do you seek the living among the dead?” asked the Angel.
Because Christ is risen, He has opened the door to paradise. “Today you will be with me in paradise” said Jesus to the penitent thief.
Because Christ is risen, there is no situation in life which is a dead-end. “ In the world, you have tribulation,” said Jesus, “but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Pascha comes every year—and indeed every Sunday—to remind us that God is not dead, that all is well because Christ is risen— Risen indeed!
GREAT AND HOLY PASCHA
Let us forgive everything for the Resurrection, And thus let us cry aloud:
Christ is risen!
Χριστὸς ἀνέστη. (3 TIMES)
Truly He is risen!
Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη. (3 TIMES)
Glory to His holy Resurrection on the third day!
Δόξα τῇ ἁγίᾳ αὐτοῦ τριηµέρῳ Ἐγέρσει.
We worship His Resurrection on the third day!
Προσκυνοῦµεν αὐτοῦ τὴν τριήµερον Ἔγερσιν.
ALL SUNDAY SERVICES:
9:00 AM—11:15 AM.
