Welcome to our Church!
Pascha 2014 
It is just the beginning of the Great Lent: A Time of repentance, forgiveness and truth about oneself to oneself. Seven weeks of sober reflection and rigor towards ourselves and towards our lives. And at the same time it is the time of anticipation of the shining joy of the upcoming Pascha holiday. The long and winding road towards the light of Christ's Resurrection. We all are waiting for this joyous holiday, though sometimes our souls forget that it will come eventually and that austerity and self-restraint are just narrow paths to the light, to that amazing excitement with which we cry out on the last night of the Great Lent: "Christ is risen! Truly, He is risen!"

And now, at the beginning of the road, when it seems that this wonderful holiday is so far away, we want our souls to recall that joy and that light. Wonderful photos by Alex and Marina Belyarchik help to recreate the events of that night in our memory, telling a story of Pascha celebration in our parish in the past year. Look, remember and rejoice - the Pascha holiday is coming!

Our Church Troparion

 

Today the faithful celebrate the feast with joy / illumined by your coming, O Mother of God. / Beholding your pure image we fervently cry to you: / “Encompass us beneath the precious veil of your protection; / deliver us from every form of evil by entreating Christ, / your Son and our God that He may save our souls.”

 


Parish History

The foundation of our parish started on 16 June 1952 with blessing of Metropolitan Anastasy. The official being of the parish came on September of 1952.

First parish Temple was arranged in a building at 150 S. Alexandria Ave. However, our parish by 1964 grew so much already that the new Temple was not big enough to fit everyone. That was why it began necessary in September of 1964 to start looking for a more suitable building. Thus, an Old Catholic Church at 2041 Argyle Ave was acquired.

Solemn great blessing of the new Temple occurred on 4 June 1965. The blessing was done by First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia Metropolitan Philaret, Saint John of San Francisco and bishop of Edmonton Savva.


Our Church Kontaktion

 

Today the Virgin stands in the midst of the Church / and with choirs of saints she invisibly prays to God for us. / Angels and bishops worship, / apostles and prophets rejoice together, / since for our sake she prays to the pre-eternal God.
