FATHER NICOLAS' MESSAGE
My Beloved Friends and Parishioners of the Saint Spyridon family,
Christ is Risen!
We remember today the Myrrh-bearing women, as well as Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus. At the moment of the Crucifixion all the Apostles had fled. Only a small group of women stood at a short distance from the Cross, and when Christ had died, they came to anoint His Body which Joseph of Arimathea had sought from Pilate, unafraid of being recognized as a disciple because in both life and death, love and faithfulness had conquered fear.
May you and your loved ones share in the Love, Peace and Joy of this Holy Pascha.
Christ is Risen!
Please join us every Sunday for the celebration of the Divine Liturgy, followed by fellowship and coffee in our Social Hall.
Sundays: Orthros (Matins): 9:00 AM | Divine Liturgy: 10:15 AM
Complimentary valet parking on Sundays.
If you are interested in sponsoring a Coffee Hour after Church Services on Sunday, please call the church office.
For additional information on church services, please contact the Church office at (212) 795-5870 between the hours of 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
IN TIMES OF ILLNESS
"Come, O blessed of my father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was sick and you visited me." (Matt. 25:31-46).
When a member of our Parish is ill and has been hospitalized or may be recuperating at home, the immediate family of the ill person should contact Father Nicolas at (212) 795-5870. It is beneficial to both the body and the soul when our priest prays for us when we are healthy or ill.
