The Synaxis of All Saints

June 7th

 

As with fine porphyry and royal purple, Your church has been adorned with Your martyrs’ blood shed throughout all the world.  She cries to You, O Christ God:  Send down Your bounties on Your people,  Grant peace to Your habitation, and great mercy to our souls!

The universe offers You the God-bearing martyrs,  As the first fruits of creation, O Lord and Creator.  Through the Theotokos, and their prayers establish Your Church in peace!

 

"The Sunday following Pentecost is dedicated to All Saints, both those who are known to us, and those who are known only to God. There have been saints at all times, and they have come from every corner of the earth. They were Apostles, Martyrs, Prophets, Hierarchs, Monastics, and Righteous, yet all were perfected by the same Holy Spirit.

The Descent of the Holy Spirit makes it possible for us to rise above our fallen state and to attain sainthood, thereby fulfilling God’s directive to 'be holy, for I am holy' (Lev. 11:44, 1 Peter 1:16, etc.).  Therefore, it is fitting to commemorate All Saints on the first Sunday after Pentecost."

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.
