This year we have the blessing of beginning Great Lent with a special retreat day on the first Saturday of Great Lent, March 7.  Our guest speaker will be Father Seraphim (Aldea), the founder of the Monastery of All Celtic Saints on the Isle of Mull, Scotland.  The day will begin with coffee and fellowship at 9:00 a.m.  Father Seraphim's first talk will begin at 10:00 a.m. The day will end at about 3:00 p.m.  Father Seraphim will also be the featured preacher at the Sunday of Orthodoxy Vespers to be hosted in our church the following day at 6:00 p.m.  His Eminence Archbishop Benjamin will preside at both the Divine Liturgy and Vespers on the Sunday of Orthodoxy.

The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Daily Readings >

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
