Come, worship with us!

Our regular weekly services are as follows:

Saturdays: Vespers, 6:30 pm

For feasts that fall on a weekday, we usually meet at 6:30pm on the eve of the feast to celebrate Vesperal Liturgy.

During Lent the Divine Liturgy of Presanctified Gifts is typically rotating between the three Orthodox churches in our area. For this year's services, see below.
