Spiritual Talks
Join Father Demosthenes each Thursday evening at 7.30 pm in a discussion about spiritual matters relevant to our every day lives.  Please feel free to email Father Demosthenes with any suggestions for topics to be discussed at our fellowship meetings.  

“There will come a time when not the persecutions but money and the goods of this world will take people far from God. Then many more souls will be lost than in the time of the persecutions. On the one hand, they will be putting gold on the domes and will put the crosses on them and, on the other hand, everywhere evil and falsehood will reign. The true Church will always be persecuted. They who want to be saved will be saved with illnesses and afflictions. The way in which the persecutions will occur will be very sly and it will be very difficult for one to foresee the persecutions. Dreadful will be that time; I pity those who will be living then.”
+ St. Seraphim of Viritsa, Seraphim of The New Saint of the Russian Church

NEW! 'St Ignatius of Antioch' Children's Group

This year we are happy to introduce a new program for our Church aimed specifically for the children of our parish.  This program will provide various religious activities such as learning Christian songs, Church hymns and prayers, as well as establishing meaningful friendships within the parish with children of similar ages. There will be monthly movie nights and more. 

Most importantly, it will give our children an opportunity to become acquainted with their priest, parish and of course build their own relationship with God. 

We encourage you all to bring your children (preferred age group 5 and up). This ministry will run for approximately one hour weekly on Thursday evenings from 6 pm.
