Upcoming Events/Services


CHRISTMAS TAKE-DOWN PARTY NEXT SUNDAY, JANUARY 20 following the 9am Divine Liturgy at the Cathedral.  Sorry as we are to see them go, the beautiful Christmas decorations at the Cathedral have to be packed away until next year.  We need the help of all able-bodied parishioners for an hour or two to carry everything downstairs.  Kids can help too, picking and packing ornaments and unstringing lights.  Refreshments will be served in the Lower Hall.  Please help if you can.

Leaders of the heavenly armies, although we are unworthy, we always beseech you, to fortify us by your prayers and to shelter us beneath the wings of your sublime glory. Watch over us who bow to you and cry out fervently: Deliver us from danger, for you are the commanders of the powers on high.
