O Come, let us worship and bow down to Christ Himself, our King and God.
This invitation marks the beginning of each day for the Orthodox Church. It comes from the office of Vespers, and it expresses the attitude which is at the heart of Orthodoxy. The Worship of God - the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, - is fundamental to the life and spirit of the Orthodox Church. Learn More»

Liturgy and Typica Services
Father John Angelis from Seattle is assigned to St Nectarios. He normally serves two weekends each month when he conducts several days of activities including a Sunday morning Divine Liturgy. He visits the Tricities several weekends each month - providing services and community outreach. On weekends that he is not here, Devine Liturgy is being provided on selected Saturdays/Sundays by visiting Priests. On weekends without a Devine Liturgy, a Typica (reader) service is held on Sunday.
Orthodox Sunday Church School
Anytime is a good time for children to start attending!. Two classes are being offered: one for younger and one for older children. Just come to Church with your children - the classes start after Communion. All are welcome! Parents are encouraged to particpate in these classes. Please contact Jim Droppo if you would be willing to be a helper for either of our classes.
Orthodox Discussion Meetings will be held at the St Nectarios Church on Saturday afternoons when Father John is here. The topics are listed in the listing of church activities. Please come, and invite your friends to come with you, to enjoy what is normally a lively discussion – and learn more about Orthodoxy. These meetings are part of a series of informal meetings with Father John for discussions of church-related topics.
