Schedule of Divine Services
SUNDAY WORSHIP SCHEDULE
Sundays: Orthros (Matins): 8:45 AM
Divine Liturgy: 10:00 AM
Κυριακή: Ορθρος 8:45 πμ. Θ. Λειτουργία 10 πμ.
Divine Liturgy begins at 10:00 a.m. The teachings and "Orthopraxia" of the Church, counsel that preparation to receive Holy Communion requires participation in the entirety of the service; at least from before the readings of scripture. Arriving on time also insures hearing the sermon. Please plan accordingly.

ALL ARE WELCOMED TO JOIN THE CHOIR
We are moving our small choir to the left side of the sanctuary to make room for others who wish to sing along. At this point in time, we will continue to use the Green Hymnal from the Archdiocese Department of Religious Education. No experience necessary--just a willingness to sing along.
Our prosphora supply is running low. If you are willing and able to bake prosfora, we would like to share the responsibility and thus have a fresh loaf each week. A sign up sheet is available in the Narthex, or you can call Fr. Gianulis @ 220-0994.
Young men over age 10 are encouraged to serve in the altar. No experience necessary. Altar boys are asked to arrive by 10:00 a.m.
