Holy Pascha: Christ is Risen!

Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tomb bestowing life!

Shine! Shine! O New Jerusalem! The glory of the Lord has shone upon you! Exult and be glad, O Zion! Be radiant, 0 Pure Theotokos, in the Resurrection of your son!

Teaching about Confession

The first of 2017's Nativity Prefeast services began the final stage of prayerful preparation for Holy Nativity.

St. Nicholas visited Holy Cross this year again, and later, many parishioners and their children sang Christmas carols at Adams Farm Living and Rehabilitation, where our brother George of blessed memory used to live.

Father Christopher gathered together the parish children who are approaching the appropriate age and offered them some teaching about confession.

After so many years of hoping, researching, planning, preparing and praying, at last we had our first meeting with the builders, initiating the actual path toward building our new church!
