Announcements

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
The news from Ukraine is truly tragic and heart-wrenching.
Millions of innocent people in Ukraine are in grave danger of unthinkable suffering.

Let us all fervently pray for the protection and well-being of the people in Ukraine, for the immediate cessation of all military action and hostilities, and for the complete restoration of peace.

Let us always remember that, first and foremost, we are Orthodox Christians. And our Holy Orthodox Church, throughout history, has united Russians, Ukrainians, Belarusians, and people of all ethnicities into the one, true, Orthodox faith. We are brothers and sisters regardless of borders.

O Lord Save and Preserve

We all fervently pray for the protection and well-being of the people of Ukraine, for the immediate cessation of all military action and hostilities and for the complete restoration of peace.

To help the refugees donate to these organizations:


Christ is Risen! Truly, He is Risen!

Христос Воскресе! Воистину Воскресе!

Χριστος Ανεστη ! Αλιθως Ανεστη !

ქრისტე აღსდგა! ჭეშმარიტად აღსდგა!

Transportation to Church

Do you need transportation to Church? Or would you be able to bring a parishioner, who doesn’t drive, to church from time to time? If you answered “yes” to either question, please contact Alexey Shevelkin. He is coordinating our parish’s efforts to offer transportation to parishioners who can’t get to church on their own. Thank you for your assistance.

Submit your 2022 Pledge

The mission of our parish is to spread the Word of God, to grow, to expand, to improve, and not just to preserve our traditions. Our parish shouldn’t become stale but pursue holiness. We strive to fulfill the mission of our parish, through prayer, work, and sacrifice. Prayer – because we are called to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thess. 5:17); work – because we are taught to increase the talents given to us (Matt. 25: 14-30); and sacrifice – because "everyone to whom much is given, from him will much be required" (Luke 12:48). Please be generous as the Lord is generous to you. When completing your pledge for the new year, please consider raising your level of giving. Our church cannot operate without your financial contributions. Our parish will grow only through your prayers, work, and generous sacrifice. Offering Pledge FORM.
