Welcome to Our Diocese!


NEW JERSEY DEANERY: Vespers & Presentation on Supporting Life

During the Lenten Sunday Divine Liturgies we hear as part of the prayer following the Anaphora, that God “knows the name and age of each, even from his (or her) mother’s womb.”  We as Orthodox Christians are inherently pro-life, but we often do not know what to do or what kind of response to make or provide.  During the reception following the Southern New Jersey Deanery Vespers on Sunday, 19 March 2017, at the Orthodox Church of the Holy Cross in Medford NJ, representatives of the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants offered suggestions on how to support and build “a Culture of Life and Family.”



MAYS LANDING NJ: Ukrainian Easter Egg Class

On the “Sunday of Orthodoxy,” 5 March 2017, a Ukrainian Easter Egg class was offered to the parish (Orthodox Church of the Mother of God) and greater community of Mays Landing NJ led by Mrs. Hala “Holly” Dawson. Twenty adults and children attended. Holly has made over 300 Pysanky eggs in the traditional Ukrainian wax-resistant method using melted beeswax and a wooden stylus.  Mrs. Lore Stefy, another Pysanky writer in the parish, assisted Mrs. Dawson. Young and old alike attended the class.



BUFFALO NY: “SUNDAY OF ORTHODOXY”

On Sunday 5 March 2017, Saint George Orthodox Church in Buffalo NY celebrated a blessing of icons followed by the traditional procession of icons to celebrate “Sunday of Orthodoxy” (the first Sunday of Great Lent). The process of making the icons began three days earlier as Church School children, together with their teachers and families, gathered to make icons while learning about the importance of icons and how we are called to be “living icons” of Our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ.



SUPPORTING SEMINARIANS, MISSIONS, AND PARISHES

For the past six years, a committed team of Distinguished Diocesan Benefactors has provided essential financial support to fund vital ministries throughout the Diocese of New York and New Jersey. You are invited and encouraged to join the team!  If the Lord has blessed you with the ability to offer support, you will participate in doing great things toward preparing our future priests & deacons, establishing new mission parishes, and giving a boost to struggling parishes. An easy and convenient way to join through secure on-line contributions is available! There is a growing list of DDBs this year; see the “honor roll” here >

The newly released issue of “First Fruits” asks the question, Rich toward God? How does one become rich toward God?  … It seems that what we do with our own things in this life has a huge impact on the next. Read the current issue here and see previous issues here >



WEST POINT MILITARY ACADEMY: Archpastoral Visit

On 12 February 2017, the Sunday of the Prodigal Son, Archbishop Michael visited Saint Martin's Chapel at the US Military Academy at West Point. Four cadets were present at the Liturgy, including a member of the graduating class whose parents were also visiting. Following the Liturgy there was a delicious brunch at the Thayer Hotel for Archbishop where Archbishop Michael spoke with the cadets, asking about their future plans and promising to pray for them.
