THE ANCIENT FAITH
Since ancient times the very word, “Orthodox,” has meant “the right worship.” Worship is the main work of a parish – to pray without ceasing, for the whole world collectively and for each of our brothers and sisters individually. Orthodox Christian worship culminates each week in the Mystery of Holy Communion — the reception of the Body and Blood of our risen Lord. By doing so we enter into union with Christ and with the entire Church throughout the world.
