We are a Greek Orthodox parish, part of the oldest Christian tradition dating back to 33 A.D., the day of Pentecost. 
We trace our roots back to the Apostles and their teachings.
We are a stronghold of the moral, theological, liturgical and spiritual traditions of the Early Church.
We invite you to come and join us to experience the worship of Early Christianity in a modern setting.

Intro to Orthodoxy Class-Begins on Sept 4th


Prayers and Help for Greece

Dear Parishioners and friends of our parish,

We are all hearing the reports about the devastating fires in Attica, Greece that have claimed the lives of dozens of people, injured many others, and destroyed countless homes and properties. We are filled with sorrow and pain as we watch the horrifying images and hear the tragic stories coming from Greece.

I ask that you all join me in praying for those who lost their lives in the fires in Greece, for those who have been injured and also for those who lost their homes.

Please join us again this Sunday for the special prayers for the victims of these fires at the end of the Divine Liturgy.

A special tray will be passed this Sunday for the victims of the fires. Our Archdiocese has announced a special fund “the Attica Fires Relief Fund”. We would like to support this effort to help the victims.

In Christ’s Love,

Fr. Panayiotis

A Historical Survey and Study of the Communications between the Reformers and the Patriarchs Joasaph II and Jeremias II. In addition, an overview of the events surrounding the Calvinist Patriarch Cyril Lucaris and Conclusions about the events and exchanges of the 16th and 17th centuries.
