“I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
We invite you to light a virtual candle at St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church.
Upon entering an Orthodox church it is customary to light candles and offer prayers for one’s personal needs or that of a family member or friend. Candles are lit before icons as a sign of one’s faith and hope in God’s help that is always sent to all who turn to Him and His Saints with faith and prayers. In practice, when lighting a candle in Church the faithful usually make a small offering to the Church. By lighting a candle and offering a prayer, one enters into closer contact with the Church and her ministry to the faithful, invisibly warming the soul by the visible light of the candle.
It is with great joy that we announce we have been assigned a permanent priest, Father George Kazoulis!
Father George will begin his tenure as priest of the St. Spyridon community on September 1st. Let's welcome him and work with him to grow our community.
