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 

COVID-19 Update

Our activities are still limited because of the COVID-19 pandemic.  See our calendar page for more details.

 The church office will be open for appointments as needed. 

The Holy Synod of Bishops of the Orthodox Church in America has met several times to discuss the current situation.  You may read the May 1, 2020 Archpastoral Letter of the Holy Synod here, and their specific directives issued at that time here.

Father Matthew has shared with us a very thoughtful and well-stated homily on the pandemic situation from Elder Zacharias of St. John the Baptist Monastery, Essex, England, which you may read here.


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:
