Feasts and Saints
The Universal Exaltation of the Precious and Life-Giving Cross

 September 14th


Come, all people!
Let us fall down in worship before the blessed Tree,
for by the Cross, eternal justice has come to pass.
The devil deceived Adam by the Tree;
now he has been deceived by the Cross.
He held the royal creation in bondage;
now he has been cast down with an amazing fall.
The serpent's venom is washed by the blood of God.
The curse is destroyed by the righteous sentence of the just One Who was unjustly condemned.
The Tree has been healed by the Tree!
The Passion of the passionless God has destroyed the passions of the condemned.
Glory to thy dispensation, O Christ,
our gracious King and the Lover of mankind!

We welcome all visitors and invite you to join us in worship and fellowship.  Please sign our guest book in the narthex of the church.  We hope the Lord blesses you through your visit to Saint Anthony the Great Orthodox Church.

We respectfully remind all visitors that Holy Communion is given only to Orthodox Christians in good standing with the Church who have prepared themselves through prayer, fasting, and confession.

Following Divine Liturgy, coffee and light refreshments are served in the attached Fellowship Hall.
