Fundraising Info 

Julie, Natasha, and Diana are brainstorming for Parish fundraiser ideas. If you have an idea, please get with them to discuss. We are also looking for those who would like to volunteer their time for any fundraisers we do in the future. To get added to the volunteer list, please get with Natasha. Many hands make light work!


Typika Services

Please join us for a reader's Typika service on Sundays at 11:00am when we do not have a priest. 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 to join us for coffee and great 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.
