Description of Services

Our Services are conducted in both Slavonic (Russian) and English-only so all visitors can participate meaningfully.

Our parish has weekly services:

  • Saturday 5pm: Vigil.  This is a service combining three services (Vespers, Matins and First Hour), and generally takes around 2¼ hours.
  • Sunday 8:30am: Divine Liturgy.  This service is preceded by the Third Hour and the Sixth Hour, and usually takes around 21/2 hours.
    • Please note that only those Orthodox Christians who have prepared themselves by fasting, prayer and Confession are able to receive Communion in our parish. Please contact Fr. Gabriel if you wish to commune at a Divine Liturgy.

We also have other occasional services and events at our parish – please consult our schedule of services, or our calendar of events.
