Baptisms and Christmations

 

Baptism and Chrismation are the entry into the life of the faith. We are baptized with water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, then anointed with  Chrism, the mark of the Holy Spirit.

Liturgical feasts

Our faith is celebratory, which can be witnessed in the Divine Liturgy, vigil, vespers, or other services that honor our Lord, the Mother of God, and the Saints.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Montessori-based religious education program. Our children learn about Christ in a liturgical environment called an atrium.  Please see these pictures to get a sense of how this curriculum "connects the mystery of the Child to the mystery of God."

Children's festival

Every year our parish connects with the children of our neighborhood by hosting a festival. There is music, popcorn, face-painting, small rides, and, of course, the renowned "Cake Walk."

chili cook-off

In the middle of the winter, we dedicate a coffee hour to the Chili Cook-off. Music, an array of homemade chili, and friendly competition make it a memorable event.

Orthodoxy around the world

Orthodoxy is an incredibly visual tradition. The internet has provided us with the great opportunity to see how our faith is practiced around the world. Enjoy!
