Parish News

Times are changing – for the better! St. Nectarios is now having Devine Liturgy on three Sundays each month! As reflected in the February schedule, Father John is to be here for two Sundays and a visiting Priest for the other Sunday. Come and support this important move forward at St. Nectarios!

Liturgy and Typica Services

Father John Angelis from Seattle is assigned to St Nectarios. He normally serves two weekends each month in the Tricities area when he conducts several days of activities including visitations, confessions, Feast Day Celebrations, and Divine Liturgy on Sunday morning. In addition, a third Divine Liturgy with a visiting Priest is being planned for a third Sunday each month.

Orthodox Sunday Church School

Now is a good time to have your children 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 just after Communion. All are welcome!

Unique Opportunity: Adults interested in helping with the Sunday Church School classes should contact Jim Droppo. Teaching our children about our faith is very important – and you can be part of it!

Orthodox Discussion Meetings will be held at the St Nectarios Church on the weekends that 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.


Father John Angelis is available for daytime visits, consultations, and confessions when he is at the St Nectarios Church. To make an appointment, please call him on his cell phone (2O6.678.636O).
