DDB: Building a Bridge to Our Future - 05/24/16

In offering vital financial support for our seminarians, mission parishes, and struggling parishes, Distinguished Diocesan Benefactors provide “building blocks” to construct a bridge to our future. The church of tomorrow will require priests, deacons, growing parishes and revitalized parishes that were founded during the last century. This year to date, 128 DDBs have generously contributed over $83,000 to meet the challenges and opportunities ahead. If you are one of our DDBs, thank-you! If you would like to join them, find out more and accept our invitation HERE!


TEENS AND YOUNG ADULTS: Exploring How to Serve in the Church - 05/23/16

Young people, high school freshman to college graduate 20-somethings, from the Orthodox Church in America and Greek Orthodox Archdiocese gathered at Holy Virgin Protection Cathedral in New York City on 14 May 2016 to hear the stories of men and women who followed a calling to serve Christ and His Church. The day started off with a prayer service (molieben) led by Father Christopher Calin (Cathedral Dean). Afterward the discussion format made for an intimate setting and allowed for lively dialogue.


“Go … make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them …” - 05/21/16

During the season of Holy PASCHA we sing: “As many as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ” (Galatians 3:27). Traditionally, catechumens are received into the Church by sacramental rite (baptism and/or anointing with Holy Chrism) especially during this period of the liturgical year. We welcome all the newly illumined members of the Body of Christ -- His Holy Church.


Archbishop Michael Celebrates 6th Anniversary of His Episcopacy - 05/12/16

On Monday, 9 May 2016, several clergy members, altar servers, and Matushki gathered from across the Diocese at Holy Trinity Church in Yonkers NY to join with His Eminence, Archbishop Michael, in celebrating the Divine Liturgy with special thanksgiving to God for Archbishop Michael's sixth anniversary of consecration to the episcopacy (May 8) and enthronement in the Diocese of New York and New Jersey (May 9)May God grant His Eminence many, many more years of blessed and fruitful service as our Archpastor! "Eis polla eti, Despota!"


PASCHA: The Resurrection of our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ - 05/01/16

This is the day of resurrection! Let us be illumined by the feast! Let us embrace each other! Let us call “brothers” even those that hate us, and forgive all by the resurrection, and so let us cry: “Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!” (Paschal Canon)

Archpastoral Letter >


Great and Holy Saturday - 04/30/16

The great Moses mystically foreshadowed this day when he said: “God blessed the seventh day.” This is the blessed Sabbath; this is the day of rest, on which the only-begotten Son of God rested from all His works. By suffering death to fulfill the plan of salvation, He kept the Sabbath in the flesh; by returning again to what He was, He has granted us eternal life through His Resurrection, for He alone is good and the Lover of man.  (Vespers of Holy Saturday)


Great and Holy Friday - 04/29/16

Today He who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon the tree of the cross.  The King of the Angels is adorned with a crown of thorns.  He who wraps the heavens in clouds is wrapped in a purple robe of mockery.  He who is the new Adam, manifested at His baptism in the Jordan, is slapped on the face.  The Bridegroom of the Church is affixed to the cross with nails.  The Son of the Virgin is crucified and pierced by a spear.  We worship Your passion, O Christ!  We worship Your passion, O Christ!  We worship Your passion, O Christ!  Show us also Your glorious resurrection!  (Antiphon Fifteen)


Great and Holy Thursday - 04/28/16

When Your glorious disciples were enlightened at the washing of their feet before the supper, then the impious Judas was darkened by the disease of avarice, and to the lawless judges he betrayed You, the Righteous Judge. Behold, O lover of money, this man Judas who because of avarice hanged himself. Flee from the insatiable desire which dared such things against the Master! O Lord who deals righteously with all, glory to You! (Troparion of Holy Thursday)
