We offer bilingual (English and Ukrainian) services at 10:00 am

We celebrate the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.  For most Sundays, the Liturgy consists of the following:

  • Opening Hymn
  • Greeting from the Parish Priest
  • The Liturgy of the Word - which includes: Epistle Reading, Gospel Reading & Homily
  • The Liturgy of the Eucharist (Preparation for the Sacrament of Holy Communion)
  • Reception of the Eucharist (Holy Communion)
  • The Liturgy of Thanksgiving
  • Closing Hymn

What you will experience in our parish at the Sunday Divine Liturgy

What you will see


The first offering at the beginning of Liturgy is for the lighting of the candles. You may also choose to make your donation and light a candle (to the left and right of the sanctuary) on your own prior to the service.

The second offering after the homily is the regular Sunday donation. As a guest, you are not obligated to make any monetary donation to attend our services. If, however, you wish to do so, coins or bills can be placed directly in the collection basket. If you wish to receive a tax receipt at the end of the year, we ask that you complete and use the offertory envelopes available in the church pews or if you wish to join our parish please ask the ushers for your own set of numbered envelopes.

Epistle Reading

This is a reading from either the Letters of St. Paul or the Acts of the Apostles .... done prior to the Gospel by a member of the congregation. We encourage anyone wishing to participate in this activity to contact our parish priest.

Gospel Reading

          This is a reading done bilingually by the priest from either of the four evangelists: Matthew, Mark, Luke or John.                       

Other Special Activities

Depending on requests by the Parishioners or the Church season, there may be baptisms, commemorations, or blessings that will be done during the Sunday service.

What you will hear


We encourage the whole congregation to actively sing the Liturgy along with our choir. Hymnbooks are available to allow you to join in the Opening, Communion and Closing hymns. Missals can be found in all church pews that provide the order of the Sunday Liturgy, allowing the faithful to participate in the service. At the conclusion of the Liturgy, we will often acknowledge those individuals celebrating Birthdays or Anniversaries with the singing of "Mnohaya Lita" (which means Many Years).


Our Liturgy provides for an opportunity to have individuals named for special petitions during the Liturgy. If you know someone who is ill, having surgery, or in need of prayer, or wish to remember someone who has passed away, please write their name on the yellow sheet found in the foyer for these prayer intentions. Father will then name these individuals during the Liturgy.

The Lord's Prayer will be sung in both English and Ukrainian during the Liturgy.

What you are invited to do

  • Use a Divine Liturgy missal found in our pews and join the choir in responding to the church service.
  • If you have small children, the Children of God Program is available to them in the Children of God classroom.
  • Take a church bulletin, so you can be aware of the various upcoming activities at the Parish.
  • Join us for coffee and sweets after the Divine Liturgy in our parish foyer. Occasionally, we have a special event in the church and may have a breakfast or dinner meal provided.
