Typika Services


Please join us for Typika on Sundays 11:00am. when we do not have a priest. The service is chanted and quite beautiful. After the service we meet in the Parish Hall for Bible Study and coffee. Rusty Hanson is the facilitator. We invite everyone to attend the Typika service and join us for coffee and discussion!


Prayer for Catechumens


O Lord our God, who dwells in the heavens, and looks down upon all thy works, look down upon thy servants, the catechumens, who have bowed their necks before thee, and grant them a light yoke. Make them honorable members of thy holy Church and vouchsafe unto them the laver of regeneration, the forgiveness of sins and the robe of incorruption, unto the knowledge of thee, our true God.


Orthodox Prayer for the Priesthood


O Lord Jesus Christ, enkindle the hearts of all Thy priests with the fire of zealous love for Thee, that they may labor unceasingly in Thine earthly vineyard for the salvation of our souls and the glory of Thine All-Honorable and Majestic Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
