Visiting Etiquette
 
COMMUNION
We ask that you approach to receive the Eucharist only if you are an Orthodox Christian who has prepared for communion through fasting and recent confession.  Should you have any questions, please Email Father Benedict.
 
PUNCTUALITY

Please strive to arrive before the posted service time.  Calendar

 

ATTENTIVENESS
Standing is the usual Orthodox posture for prayer. Of course, many people cannot stand for extended periods of time, in which case you are welcome to sit down as you need to.  In Orthodoxy, we stress being attentive in the services. While sitting is not the traditional posture for prayer, if we must sit, it is good to sit reverently and attentively, with both feet on the floor rather than sitting in a overly casual way, remembering that we are in a holy place.  

 

CONVERSATION
We ask to withhold any extensive conversation until after the service is concluded. Voices ought never drown out the prayers being read, thus it is better to avoid conversations until afterward.

 

VENERATING ICONS
Non -Orthodox visitors will notice that it is typical for Orthodox Christians to venerate the icons upon entering the church. One common way of venerating icons is to make the sign of the cross and bow twice, then to kiss the icon, and then to make the sign of the Cross and bow a third time.  

 

 

The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”
