Register now for Good Friday and Holy Saturday Services
PLEASE REGISTER NOW using LINKS above to access the Church Site during the Good Friday and Holy Saturday Services
As part of our COVID outdoor gathering safety plan, it is a requirement that everyone who attends the Church site registers their attendance. Please be sure to have your printed or electronic tickets with you as they will be checked by security on the Church grounds.
You can register up to 10 family members with a single registration.
Entry into the Church will also require pre-registration or registration at the door and depends on the available capacity at the time.
If the Church is full, you can still light a candle, venerate icons and then stand outside the Church during the service. We will have live streaming available outside at the front of the Church and the Church Courtyard.

Iviron monastery is one of the biggest monasteries on Mt Athos. It is an amazing monastic community and building that is set in a beautiful area of the world: the Garden of the Mother of God! It’s been made by a professional photographer who spends a lot of time at the monastery. It is very inspirational and a blessing that we have such monastics praying for us . Enjoy!
VOLUNTEER SCRIPTURE TEACHERS NEEDED
We would like to kindly ask you to help our team of volunteer teachers to help young kids learn more about the Bible and the Orthodox Church in Public Schools.
Please look at becoming a Scripture teacher. It is not something difficult but it is a great blessing for all. In particular is would be good to be part of the “be there for me” campaign as some of our teachers are elderly and need support at this time. Please feel free to watch this video prepared by the body that coordinates Scripture in Public Schools for which we are members.
May God bless you and your family.
