Our Divine Liturgy on Sundays preserves the ancient way of Christian worship, profound and mystical, and Spirit-filled. Visitors are welcome to the services. On Sundays prayer begins at 8:30 with Orthros ("Matins"), followed by the Divine Liturgy at 10 am. On Saturdays we prepare with Great Vespers at 6 pm. Weekday services may be found on the calendar.
