Welcome to Our Parish!


Христос Воскресе! Christ is Risen!




Christ Is Risen!

 Most Reverend Archpastors and brethren, most honored fathers and concelebrants, monastics, beloved brethren and sisters in Christ, parishioners and worshippers of our Church scattered throughout the whole world:

Christ is Risen!

Truly, these age-old holy words which we exchanged with one another at the time of the Pascha of the Lord resonate with great joy in the hearts of Orthodox believers. These radiant, astonishing sensations which the Christian soul experiences on the night of Pascha are like a reflection of heavenly joy sent to us by the Lord. These joyous feelings inspire us during the blessed hours when we hear the greeting of the clergy, the chanting of church choirs and the beautiful Paschal pealing of bells summoning us to share in the common feast of feasts. We see in the wonderfully-decorated church the kindly and reverent faces of those gathered to pray, and with them we receive the communion of the Holy Mysteries of Christ.
Concerning the joy of Pascha, the ever-memorable Metropolitan Anastassy (Gribanovsky), who died 50 years ago (on 22 May, 1965) wrote remarkably: “Joy! Our soul always thirsts for it! All of us would enjoy taking delight in it! But it is not given to us gratis. Each moment of happiness must be purchased in this world. Now the radiant Paschal joy comes to us independently of our efforts, as a heavenly blessing. Like a refreshing dew, it falls from heaven to the earth, it wafts upon us like this sweetly-scented wind of springtime. We are all uplifted in spirit upon its gentle breezes, and are lightly enjoy your family carried on its bosom, by its sweet breath.”
