Welcome to Holy Apostles Orthodox Church

 

Holy Apostles Orthodox Church is a parish of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR), founded with the purpose of bringing the Gospel and Divine Services of the Russian Orthodox Church to the people of America in the English language. We invite you to come to any of the Divine Services or events at our mission church. In 2009 we were gifted a beautiful, historic chapel and two-acre campus by the Christian Brothers. Our vision is to establish the parish in its new home, from where the parish can continue to thrive and grow as a living icon of Orthodox missions in America.


Architect's Watercolor

Architect Andrew Gould delivered a beautiful watercolor of his concept for our New Parish Hall, just in time for us to display at our Capital Fundraising Launch Event June 10. See more of Andrew's architectural drawings for the new parish hall, and watch our two-part video of his talk with the parish in October 2017, where he discusses his vision for our new campus, through designs integrated with the style of our historic Chapel.

Representative Services to be held at - and for - Holy Apostles parish and her parishioners

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Services will be held and live-streamed for your benefit from one of two places.  Some prayers will be done at the rectory.  At church, we will hold the Saturday evening Vigil and the Sunday morning Divine Liturgy with a small group to serve and sing.
 
Tomorrow, Friday evening at 6:30 PM, the canon, akathist and other hymns that are part of the Matins for the Laudation of the Mother of God will be read and sung from the rectory.
 
Saturday evening at 5:00 PM, the Evening Vigil service for the 5th Sunday of Great Lent will be served.  The focus of the hymnody is on St. Mary of Egypt.
 
Sunday morning at 9:40 AM, the Hours and Divine Liturgy of St. Basil for the 5th Sunday of Great Lent will be served.
 
Monday evening for the eve of Annunciation, the entire canon for the feast will be sung starting at 6:30 PM.
 
All these offerings will be live streamed.
 
Attached to this message is Metropolitan Hilarion's appeal to us in connection to the Corona Virus.  it is an inspiring document.  In support of live-streaming of services, he says that:
 
Where the divine services are being broadcast over the Internet via live-stream, many unite and join in this prayer, creating a prayerful atmosphere in their own homes. I have even heard of instances where some among the faithful light candles and lamps and, standing in their prayer corners, follow along with the service and pray. I think that such church "attendance" has the virtue for them of actual attendance, and inclines to them God’s mercy. 
 
If you have not already, please see and hear on our Holy Apostles Facebook page and also on our YouTube Channel Mariya Petrenko's reading of the life of St. Mary of Egypt.  This is something she does every year in honor of her heavenly patron in the service of the Great Canon which we did not serve this year.
 
With love in our all-conquering Lord, Jesus Christ,
Father George

Orthodox Christianity: Founded 33 AD
 
Two thousand years ago, after receiving the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, the apostles of Christ went out from their native Israel to bring the Christian Faith to all the far reaches of the world. The ancient Christian Faith, founded so long ago, remains unchanged today and is found in the Orthodox Church.
 
Holy Apostles Orthodox Church was founded with the purpose of bringing the Gospel and Divine Services of the Russian Orthodox Church to the people of America in the English language. We invite you to come to any of the Divine Services or events at our mission church.
Come and see...

We have a flyer available for you to hand out or post on bulletin boards, regarding our mission parish.  One is available here, in PDF format.  Please invite a friend to come visit our church.  We want to fill our church!
