Welcome to Our Diocese!
PARAMUS NJ: “Bright Wednesday” Vespers - 04/25/15

On “Bright Wednesday” of PASCHA, 15 April 2015, Christ the Savior Church in Paramus NJ greeted His Eminence, Archbishop Michael, and faithful from the surrounding area to celebrate a Paschal Vespers and enjoy a wonderful agape fellowship meal. Sixteen priests from the New Jersey Deanery vested to celebrate the Vespers with Archbishop Michael, and five priests attended joining a congregation that filled the church. The celebration and fellowship was a joyous expression of Christ’s glorious Resurrection.


DDB: “Thank You” for Your Support! - 04/21/15

The Distinguished Diocesan Benefactors of our diocese are people of all ages representing parishes in New York & New Jersey, and generous friends from more distant places. Their continued financial support assists seminarians, mission parishes, and older parishes in need of revitalization. By the grace of God and through their loving gifts, DDBs contributed $157,000 last year alone. On Sunday, 19 April, the third and final DDB Appreciation Dinner recognizing those who participated in 2014 was held in Endicott NY for the New York State Deanery. Earlier in the year, dinners were held for the DDBs of the New Jersey Deanery and the New York City Deanery.

PASCHA: The Resurrection of our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ - 04/12/15

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 - 04/11/15

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 - 04/10/15

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 - 04/08/15

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)
