The situation in the Ukraine is a tragedy. The congregation of our parish includes, among others, both Ukrainians and Russians. We all desire peace, and an end to the suffering taking place. We offer our prayers for the people of Ukraine, and we invite you to join us in praying for peace.


Lord Jesus Christ our God, look down with Thy merciful eye upon the sorrow and greatly painful cry of Thy children abiding in the Ukrainian land. Deliver Thy people from civil strife, make to cease the spilling of blood, and turn back the misfortunes set against them. Lead unto sanctuary those bereft of shelter, feed the hungry, comfort those who weep, and unite the divided. Leave not Thine own flock, who abide in sorrows on account of their kinsman, to diminish, but rather, as Thou are benevolent, give speedy reconciliation. Soften the hearts of the unmerciful and convert them to the knowledge of Thee. Grant peace to Thy Church and to Her children, that with one heart and one mouth we may glorify Thee, our Lord and Savior, under the ages of ages. Amen.

His Grace Bishop Nicholas of Eastern American and New York is elected First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia.

Arrangements for Holy Baptism can only be made by meeting in person with Father John. No arrangements for Holy Baptism will be made over the telephone, or by email.

Confessions are typically heard during the Canon at Matins during the Vigil Service. Please contact Fr. John (by either email or telephone) if you would like to have your confession heard at another time.

The Divine Liturgy is in English and Slavonic, except on the first Sunday of the month, when it is served primarily in Church Slavonic. Those parts of the service ordinarily served in both English and Slavonic are not affected by this step. All sermons are in English.
