This is what the Lord says:

Stand at the roads, and see,

and ask for the ancient paths of the Lord,

and see what the good way is, and walk in it,
and you will find purification for your souls.

(Prophet Jeremiah 6:16)

 

Orthodox Christian church temples of divine worship are known for their great beauty. It is a beauty that is not of this world, a beauty that draws people into a world of prayer and love: love for God, love for other people who are created in God's image, and love for God's whole creation. 

The beautiful Orthodox temple has but one purpose: to help believers themselves to become radiant living temples of God by casting out the ugliness of sin and acquiring the grace of the Holy Spirit in humility and love. This struggle and its fruits represent the true beauty of the Church.

A word about the church calendar . . .

Like most parishes of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, we follow the "new" (Revised Julian) calendar.

This means that we celebrate the non-moveable feasts (such as the Lord's Nativity) thirteen days before the churches that follow the "old" (Julian) calendar (such as the churches of Russia and Serbia). However, we celebrate Holy Pascha (and the moveable feasts dependent on Pascha, such as Ascension and Pentecost) together with all other Orthodox Christians.
