Today is the beginning of our salvation

and the manifestation of the mystery

which is from eternity. 

The Son of God becomes the Son of the Virgin,

and Gabriel announces grace. 

So, with him, let us also cry

to the Mother of God: 

'Rejoice, thou who art full of grace! 

The Lord is with thee.'

 

-- Troparion of the church 

On February 7 - 9, 2023, our parish will host a Mission Deanery Retreat. The schedule for this retreat may be viewed here. Local parish members are allowed to hear the presentations at this retreat and attend the services.

About five weeks before his death, Hieromonk Andrew (Letten) of blessed memory shared with us some edifying writings of the Optina Elders on gratitude to God for all things, which you may read here.

Church Construction

Construction for our church building remodel is continuing. The areas of work are blocked off by barriers or fencing, and it is extremely important for parishioners and visitors not to cross these barriers (even when the construction workers are absent). It will be important for parents to watch their children carefully during this phase in order to avoid any unnecessary accidents.

CHURCH EXPANSION

At our annual members' meeting on January 25, 2015, we approved an expansion project for our church building.  Click this YouTube link for a conceptual video showing proposed changes:
