Father Seraphim will be on vacation for one week, from Wednesday July 27 until Thursday August 4. During this time, Wednesday and Thursday services will be cancelled, and all other services will be held as reader's services. See the calendar below for details.


We will beginning our Church School program for 2011-2012 on Sunday, August 14th. We will be running three regular classes this year, in addition to the year-round preschool class during the Sunday homily. All three classes will take place at approximately 12:45 on Sunday afternoons, after we have had some time to get something to eat.

1. Elementary School class, for children in grades 1-4 or so.
2. Middle School class for children in grades 5-8 or so.
3. Class for Adults and Older Children, focusing on the fundamentals of the faith — the dogmas we confess and their meaning for our daily lives as Orthodox Christians.


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.
