Feast and Saints
The Commemoration of the Holy Fathers of the First Six Ecumenical Councils

 

Today we commemorate the Fathers of the first 6 Ecumenical Councils, who convened to settle matters of doctrine in response to heresies which arose at various times. The tradition of this celebration began before the 7th Ecumenical Council. 
 

Troparion — Tone 8

You are most glorious, O Christ our God! / You have established the Holy Fathers as lights on the earth! / Through them you have guided us to the true faith! / O greatly Compassionate One, glory to You!

Kontakion — Tone 8

The Apostles’ preaching and the Fathers’ doctrines have established one faith for the Church. / Adorned with the robe of truth, woven from heavenly theology, / It defines and glorifies the great mystery of Orthodoxy!

 


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.
