Schedule Update:

Vespers will be sung on Saturday evening, August 30 at 5:00 PM.

On Sunday morning, August 31, the choir will practice at 9:00 AM. Third Hour Prayers will begin around 9:45 AM, followed by Typika at 10:00 AM.

Our prayers will include intercessions for those who are travelling in an effort to find refuge from the coming storm, and for the health and safety of all.
O God, our help and assistance, Who art just and merciful, and Who heareth the supplications of Thy people; look down upon us and protect us in the coming days. Grant, we beseech Thee, Thy divine helping grace, and endow us with patience and strength to endure our tribulations with complete submission to Thy Will. Thou knowest our misery and suffering and to Thee, our only hope and refuge, we flee for relief and comfort; trusting to Thine infinite love and compassion, that in due time, when Thou knowest best, Thou wilt deliver us from this trouble, and turn our distress into comfort, when we shall rejoice in Thy mercy, and exalt and praise Thy Holy Name, O Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
