Latest News and Information

Holy Transfiguration ~ August 6

We observe the Feast of the Transfiguration on Friday, August 6. The holy day schedule is:
Thursday, August 5: Great Vespers, 6:00 p.m.
Friday, August 6: Orthros, 8:30 a.m.; Divine Liturgy, 9:30 a.m.
A potluck lunch in the Courtyard follows the Divine Liturgy. Please bring a celebratory (but Lenten!) dish to share (fish is permitted this day).

Dormition Fast

The Dormition Fast period is from August 1-14 and is done in preparation for the greatest Feast of the Mother of God, her Dormition. During this period we abstain from meat, dairy, fish, wine, and oil and attend the Paraklesis Service, a beautiful and melodic worship experience during which we supplicate the Holy Virgin for her intercessions, protection, and tender love.

Paraklesis Services take place at 6:00 p.m. on the following days:
August 2, 3, 4, and 6 (Great Vespers is offered on August 5)
August 9-13

Dormition Feast Picnic

Celebrate our Feast Day on Sunday, August 15, and come together as a community for a picnic complete with “Panagia” burgers, sides, and desserts! Vegetarian options will be available.

Sunday Worship

5:00 PM / SATURDAY VESPERS

The word Vespers comes from the Greek word that means ‘in the evening,’ so this is the evening prayer service which thanks God for the day that is coming to a close and inaugurates the new day. Saturday night Great Vespers brings in the Lord’s Day and is therefore resurrectional in character.

8:30 AM / ORTHROS

The word Orthros, in Greek means 'sunrise' or 'dawn.' So the Orthros, or Matins Service is the sunrise worship service.

9:30 AM / DIVINE LITURGY

The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (c. 347-407), Archbishop of Constantinople, is the most prevalent of four ancient liturgies utilized by the early Church and still celebrated today.
