Blessed art Thou, O Christ our God,

Who hast shown forth the fisherman as supremely wise

by sending down upon them the Holy Spirit,

and through them didst draw the world into Thy net.

O Lover of Mankind, glory to Thee!


On Sunday, July 17th, we will be holding a fund-raising event to fund the construction of our covered porch, which we hope will provide a much-needed expansion to our dining space. Igumen Gregory from St. Arsenius Hermitage in Decator will present a talk about "Prayer and its Practice." The talk will take place across the street at the Bingham House. Parishioners are encouraged to attend; tickets may be purchased at www.orthodox.net.

Parishioners are also asked, if possible, to help provide the complementary refreshments during the talk. Emails have been sent out to the St. Julianna Sisterhood list with suggested menu items that need to be provided. If you have any questions, contact Elaine King. .



This Saturday, June 11th, we have a Church open house in celebration of one year in our new location. This event will begin after the Requiem Liturgy and continue throughout the afternoon. Please try to attend and help greet visitors.




If you can give a few hours of our time to help care for God's house, please contact Matushka Marina, Reader David or Deacon Nicholas and we'll tell you how you can help.

We have a list of things our parish needs. If you or somebody you know wish to supply one of these items, please contact us.
