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»

Clergy: St Nectarios does not currently have a Priest assigned to our Parish. Father John has taken an indefinite leave from serving at St Nectarios for personal reasons. We greatly miss him and our prayers are with him and his family.
The Parish Council is working with the diocese to identify a new Priest for St Nectarios. Updates on the Parish Council’s progress will be posted on the St Nectarios Website and included in weekly Bulletins.
Services: We have some really good news. In the near term, special Liturgical services are being planned for several times per month. There will also continue to be Typica reader services every Sunday at St Nectarios starting at 10AM. The service will be followed by fellowship time (now including a light meal).
