First Visit

Guests and visitors are always welcome.

We worship in the Byzantine Rite, which has deep roots in early Christianity and is steeped in Biblical traditions. Our primary worship service is called the Divine Liturgy.

How to Participate

If this is your first encounter with the Divine Liturgy, we recommend that you simply relax and allow yourself to take in the experience.

The Divine Liturgy is a mystical celebration that engages all five senses. In time, you will become familiar with the flow of the liturgy, and it will transform your spiritual life.

Receiving Communion

When receiving communion, approach the priest with your mouth open wide and your head tilted back. Keep your tongue inside your mouth. Communion will be dropped into your mouth with a spoon. Do not close your mouth until the spoon has been removed.

All Catholics are invited to receive communion. Orthodox Christians, with permission from their bishops, are also welcome to receive the Holy Eucharist.

Because Catholics believe that communion is a sign of the oneness of faith, members of those churches with whom we are not yet fully united are ordinarily not admitted to Holy Communion.

Become a Member

We invite you to join our church family.

Our church is a diverse group of people from many different ethnic and social backgrounds. We have faithful in our parish family who were raised in a variety of religious traditions, and now call our church home.

To become a member, speak with our priest following the Divine Liturgy, and tell him that you would like to join the church. Parish registration forms are located in the back of the church. We would love to welcome you into the family.
