Saturday Evening: VESPERS 6 PM

Why do we attend Vespers?

The service of Vespers takes us through creation, sin and salvation in Christ.  It leads us to the meditation of God's Word and the glorification of His love for men.  It instructs us and allows us to praise God for the particular events or persons whose memory is celebrated and made present to us in the Church.  It prepares us for the sleep of the night and the dawn of the new day to come.  On the evening before the Divine Liturgy, it begins our movement into the most perfect Communion with God in the Sacramental Mysteries.

The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”

More Information >

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Daily Readings >

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
