Livestreamed Services

Our services (in English with some portions in Russian) will be live streamed here:


Tips for watching streamed (or recorded) services:
1. Before the streamed (or recorded) video, take care of personal needs. Turn off devices which can distract. Dress nicely, just as if you were going to church.
2. Set the device among your icons (or place icons around the device). Once service begins, stand reverently and as much as possible participate physically, crossing, bowing, praying and singing along.
3. During any Communion time, sip some holy water and say the prayers you usually say then (if nothing else, the Jesus Prayer).
4. If you would have gone to confession at a service, make a list of sins and read it aloud to God in repentance, asking His forgiveness.

Visit by Fr. Moses

On Tuesday, July 21, Father Aidan was reassigned to be a monk at Saints Sergius and Herman of Valaam Monastery in Michigan.  His last Liturgy with our Parish was Saturday, July 25.

Our Dean, Fr. John Whiteford, is our current Priest, and will continue to be our Priest until a new Priest is assigned to our Parish.

Fr. John will be bringing Fr. Moses McPherson to our Parish this weekend.  They will both be present for Vespers on Saturday.  And Fr. Moses will serve Liturgy on Sunday morning.

Fr. Moses is currently the Assistant Rector at St. Vladimir Orthodox Church ROCOR in Dexter Michigan.

All are welcome to come to Vespers and Liturgy this weekend to meet Fr. Moses.
