Welcome to St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church.
Latest News and Information
Our Big Greek Give Back continues through the end of September.
We thank everyone who participated in the event on Saturday, September 12. We served over 1,400 meals and exceded our food and financial contribution donation goals!
BUT – the need for assistance isn’t going away any time soon. We are keeping our donation link open until September 30 in order to collect more funds to help area food shelves help those in need.
All contributions made through this link will go directly to agencies in the area that feed the hungry.
If you wish to make a non-cash donation you may do so as well. Items needed are:
• non-perishables (canned and packaged foods)
• back to school items for kids and teenagers
• childcare items such as diapers and wipes
• deodorant and other personal hygiene items.
Please check food expiration dates, no expired containers. Also, pop-top lids on canned food is a need.
Our building is open Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and on the weekends for Liturgy. The food shelf cart is just inside the south entry.
Our first Parish-Night Week is September 29-October 1.
Find out more about Parish Night on the Parish Night page.
As an effort to accommodate our large congregation during this time, we will be offering the Divine Liturgy on Saturdays as well as Sundays for the upcoming weeks. Please note that we request pre-registration for all attending Liturgy on either Saturday or Sunday.
Saturdays will begin with Orthros at 9:00 a.m. followed by Liturgy at 10:00 a.m.
The Sunday schedule remains the same as always, Orthros at 8:30 a.m. and Liturgy at 9:30 a.m. The Sunday Liturgy will be live-streamed on our Facebook page.
Please watch your e-mails for the weekly sign up to attend a Liturgy.
As our world continues to face uncertain and challenging times, we at St. Mary’s want our parishioners and friends to know that we are here for you. At the present time, and until further notice, the church, building, and office are open during weekday business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.). We invite all who find a need, to stop in, light a candle, and spend some time in God’s House, praying or simply spending a few quiet moments away from the news and the outside world. If you have questions or concerns, please give us a call, 612.825.9595.
In-person worship at St. Mary’s has resumed. Each week an e-mail with sign up links is sent to our parishioners to register to attend a weekend Liturgy.
The weekday liturgies and other services do not require pre-registration unless otherwise noted.
Even though we are returning to in-person worship, not all may feel comfortable worshiping in such a setting. So that all may stay a part of our community, we will continue to live-streaming the Sunday Liturgy on our Facebook page.
A number of services and features have been recorded and available on our YouTube page. We encourage everyone to subscribe! Videos of services, story time for young kids, and messages from the clergy are found there.
For those who wish to worship at home, we offer a number of resources on the Stay Connected page of our website.
You can make a donation to St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church using the button below. This will take you to an online giving website operated by ParishSOFT LLC. Thank you.
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.
