The Divine Liturgy

"The Divine Liturgy, what a splendor, indeed!  Man has been honored by God in such a way that He Himself came down to earth with His Angelic Orders, every time there is a Liturgy, in order to nurture man with His Most Holy Body and His Most Precisous Blood!  For He has given us everything; is there anything physical or spiritual, perishable or everlasting that has not been offered to us?  None!  Is there anything superior to His Most Holy Body and Blood, which is given to us on a daily basis?  There is certainly not.  God has enabled man, who is of soil and dirt, to serve the Divine Liturgy.  So Priceless is the Divine Love that just a tiny drop exceeds any global, physical and secular love."  From Experiences During the Divine Liturgy, by Protopresbyter Stephanos K. Anagnostopoulos.


Come and join us each week to experience God's love and presence during His Divine Liturgy.


Orthodoxy is the First Church. It is the living, unbroken continuation of the Faith as first given to the Apostles. This doesn't mean that the Orthodox Churches have researched and attempted to re-create the Primitive Church. It means that we live, pray and preach continuously and consistently every day since the time of the Apostles.

Since we don't believe in things like "development of doctrine," Orthodox teaching has been carefully safeguarded and faithfully passed down through the centuries. It is no stretch to say that a First-Century Christian who could somehow walk into an Orthodox church today would (after he adjusted to the architecture and the electricity) feel completely comfortable.
