Sunday of the ParalyticMay 3, 2015

I am grievously paralyzed in a multitude of sins and wrongful deeds. As You raised up the paralytic of old, also raise up my soul by Your divine guidance, that I may cry out,

Ten Lepers

Having met the Savior, therefore, the lepers earnestly besought Him to free them from their misery, and called Him Master, that is. Teacher. No one pitied them when suffering this malady, but He Who had appeared on earth for this very reason, and had become man that He might show pity to all, He was moved with compassion for them, and had mercy on them.

Iconography Update August 2014

This is our latest update with those who have pledged and given for our new Iconography/Hall Renovation Project.

Dear Parishioners,

On behalf of our Parish Council, Hall Renovation and Iconography Committee we wanted to give you an update on our latest sacred endeavors. First, as you can see from the inside of the Church, the iconography project is moving along wonderfully. Our iconographer will be returning in the next few weeks to add more icons that have been donated. We have heard so many positive responses to this project and true evidence of its reception is the almost $300,000 that has been committed to it in donations. Part of which goes to renovate the large hall.

View the video that introduced you to the effort, “This is my Church, what is it to you?” I am sure after seeing it you too will want to join the people listed here and make your commitment to completing the iconography of our Church in preparation for the Consecration of our Sanctuary.

As for the hall project the Parish Council has authorized that the necessary drawings for the renovation of the kitchen, including the small hall, be done as soon as possible. It is our prayer to begin this part of the project sometime after Pascha this year.

The Lord continues to shower our community with so many blessings. Thank you for your support. If you want to donate to this sacred and once in a life time project please speak to one of us.

In Christ,

Fr. Chris Metropulos

John Ioannou Jr. – Parish Council President

Narthex Renovation

The Narthex has begun its transformation.  This week the dome, pangaria, proskinitaria, and sand pits are being installed.

Once you enter the church through the main entrance, you will be taken back in time, once the dome icons are installed to the time of Moses who through Gods grace and guidance led the people of Israel in the desert with flames of fire.  When you light your candle you begin your journey from the land of Egypt to the Kingdom of Heaven, the Holy of Holies, to receive the Body and Blood of Christ.

Please view the pictures of the new narthex furniture and their installation.

Narthex Update

In the next few weeks we will be receiving the new furniture pieces for the Narthex. 

View our photo album to see these masterpieces.
