MESSAGE

My Beloved Friends and Parishioners of Saint Spyridon,

The Church of God is not an institution, it is a miracle. It is a mystery as the Body of Christ. It is a mystery as a place of salvation. It is a mystery as life, hope and conversion. These are the fruits of the Holy Spirit that are given to us by Christ and that unite us to God and to one another.

I wish the fathers of St. Spyridon church a blessed day and a year of good works ahead.

May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Love of God and Father, and the Communion of the Holy Spirit be with all of you!

Xρόνια πολλά!

With Christ’s love, 

Fr. Nicolas

CHILDRENS QUIET ROOM

Please feel free to bring your child to the Quiet Room to read a book if they are restless in church. Our Quiet Room is outside the elevator on the church level. There are sofas and a basket with books.


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.


RESERVING YOUR WEDDING DATE

Before reserving a reception hall for your wedding, remember to verify that the church allows weddings on that day.


PARISH UPDATES

Saturday of the Souls - June 15

During memorial services, we commemorate the souls of all Orthodox Christians who have gone before us into eternal rest. In praying for those who have “fallen asleep in the Lord,” we continue to ask that God may have mercy on them in His divine judgment so they may gain the inheritance of the Kingdom of Heaven.

The names offered during the “Saturday of the Souls” (June 15), Saturday prior to the feast of Pentecost, will be commemorated. Also remember your loved ones by not only submitting their names, but by attending the holy services to offer your own prayers for their eternal rest. Anyone wishing to do so may also bring or order a dish of memorial wheat (“kollyva”) for use during the service. Please, bring your list of names to the service, or if not able to attend, call the Church Office ( 212-795-5870) ahead of time or send it by email to office@saintspyridon.net
