Nativity & Theophany in the Parish

As Christmas approaches, we get ready for a number of beloved services and we invite visitors to join us! First of all, we will have our own ruling bishop, Archbishop Alexander, leading our Nativity Vigil (Sunday at 630pm) and our Christmas Day Liturgy! Additionally, an old friend of our community, Archbishop Mark of Pennsylvania, will be visiting the Sunday after Christmas.
