Opportunities for Learning and Service
The Church School program fosters spiritual learning through age-appropriate lessons, which may include an introduction to church feasts, fasts and liturgical practices, prayers, Bible stories, crafts and projects, and liturgical songs.
The St. Ignatius Catechetical Group (Inquirers’ Class) is for non-Orthodox adults who are interested in exploring the Christian Faith as it has been – and continues to be – understood, preached, and lived by members of the Holy Orthodox Church. Classes are held weekly beginning in the Fall and conclude at the end of Great and Holy Lent in the Spring.
This program and journey is an opportunity for anyone interested to learn, to reflect, and to be transformed through the Orthodox Christian Faith in preparation for various ministries.
In the Eastern Orthodox Church, altar servers assist the higher clergy during services. They might carry the cross, candles or liturgical fans in processions and entrances
The Church School Liturgical Service Program is designed to encourage all the children and teens in Church School to connect more closely with the liturgy by participating more fully in our liturgical celebration. By doing so, we hope it will encourage them to grow in their relationship with God through the liturgy.
Music plays an integral role in the liturgical life of the Orthodox Church. Learn more about the mixed voice choir for Divine Liturgy or the Byzantine Choir for Vespers, Orthros, and other services.
There are a number of ways you can help the Church, your fellow worshipers and those in need. Consider serving in one of these ways: participation, volunteering, and donations
