Image & Likeness

This Wednesday evening at 5pm our own Fr. Nathan Symeon presents a study of our Holy Father John of Damascus’ fierce and powerful defense of the importance of Holy Images, that we may approach the anniversary of the restoration of icons to the church after the iconoclast heresy with renewed faith in their power to ingrain the truth in our souls. Register today:

The Fast of Cheese-fare Week

Today this fast is considered part of the Great Fast, a preparation period in which we enter gradually into the asceticism of the Fast. It originated, however, in the Oriental Orthodox (non-Chalcedonian) Churches and was separate from the Great Fast. It was called the fast of Nineveh, and was observed three weeks before the Great fast, in what is now the Week after the Sunday of the Publican and the Pharisee. The Byzantine Church would not observe it at the same time as those Churches in which it was not in communion and moved it to the Week before the Great Fast.

From the Typicon (guidebook for the liturgies of the church)


During Cheese-fare Week Wednesday and Friday are aliturgical days. Instead of our usual Divine Liturgy on Wednesday night, we will pray a Paraklesis to the Mother of God. On Wednesdays of the Great Fast we will hold Presanctified Liturgy.


“Whatever you did for the least of my brethren, you did it for me.” Our vocation is about being Christ to others and seeing Christ in others with as much faith, hope and love as possible. God may be calling you to this life through an increase in prayer as a monk, nun, or member of the clergy. To find out more, contact the Vocations Office at 206-329-9219 or email:
