Regarding Confessions

While it is not necessary to make a confession before Communion every Sunday (unless a serious sin has been committed), all Orthodox Christians are asked to reflect upon their spiritual lives constantly and to make confession periodically (typically every three to four months). Confessions are heard during Matins, as time permits, after Liturgy, or by appointment. Please await your turn by sitting in the fourth pew on the left side of the Church, while reciting the pre-communion prayers, which can be found in the red service book on pages 204-208.

A Note to our Visitors

We are glad to have you worshipping with us today.  We hope you will sign our guest register and will introduce yourself to Fr. John after the service.  Please also join us for coffee following Liturgy.

Since we understand Communion to be a sign of our unity of faith, only Orthodox Christians who have prepared themselves through prayer, fasting and periodic confession are permitted to participate in Holy Communion.  All present, however, are welcome to partake of the blessed bread, which is distributed at the end of the service.
