    We are very excited to announce a brand new music ministry here at our Cathedral. "GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT" is a ministry that will involve sharing our faith through performing, recording and writing faith based music. We invite anyone 13 years old and older to be involved. Anyone with the willingness to profess our faith and work with other Orthodox brothers and sisters in a creative environment are welcome. No music ability necessary! We will have our first gathering on Tuesday, May 10th at 6:30pm in the AOC.

    Holy Week is upon us and there are a number of preparations that are underway.  

    For all of the services, parking is available on both of our lots, and after 5 PM, behind the Annunciation Orthodox Center at the MedChi Building, along with the Associated Jewish Charities. Security will also be present.  

    On Holy Friday and Holy Saturday evening (Anastasis), both of our lots will have uniformed parking attendants to help maximize parking.  You may be required to present your car keys so we can safely park as many vehicles as possible on our lots.  

    On Friday and Saturday nights, where candles are used as part of the services, you may purchase them upon entering the Cathedral.  Cash/Checks are accepted.  You may also use credit cards. 

    We look forward seeing you!

    The Great Lenten season begins today.  Scripture, hymnology, and teachings of the church instruct us to enter this period with great joy.  It is a time of intense prayer, fasting, giving to those in need, and being silent.  It is also a time for additional services.  

    During this season, you will be receiving daily emails called Spiritual Wisdom.  Each of them are short messages for reflection and inspiration.   Take some time and learn more about the church by going to the Archdiocesan website, There you will find a tremendous amount of information for this season.
