First Visit

+ Greeters at the door can answer your questions and show you where to go.

+ Many at St Paul's have come to Orthodoxy from other traditions. We remember making that first visit ourselves and would love to help you find your way around.


+ Our children stay with us in the service - yours are most welcome.

Please plan to join us after the service for Fellowship Hour, a light meal free to all.

The Divine Liturgy is the main Sunday morning service. It starts at 9:30 AM, although a reader is already chanting a preliminary service, the Hours, as the congregation enters.


As worshipers enter the sanctuary you will see them stop to kiss several icons at the doors. Kissing or “venerating” icons is the traditional way to show love and respect...
