Church Cantors

Our Church Cantors lead us in worship in the active dialogue of sung prayer we call Divine Liturgy.  We unite our voices in prayer when we gather together in community.

Epistle Readers

These women, men and young adults proclaim the Epistle readings by chanting or reading during the Divine Liturgy.  Adults and youth are both welcome to participate in this important ministry.  Please contact the church office to volunteer.

Altar Servers

We encourage young men of the parish to be altar servers.  Altar servers bear candles; assist with incense & Holy Communion and lead processions in the Church. If your son is interested in being an altar server, please contact the church office.


These volunteers greet people entering the church building, assist with seating and collect and present the weekly offering during the Divine Liturgy. Please contact the church office to volunteer.

Coffee Social Helpers

Women, men and young adults are needed to help prepare and serve snacks and coffee in the hall after the Sunday Diving Liturgy. Please contact the church office to volunteer.

Church Cleaners

O Lord I believe and profess that You are truly Christ the Son of the Living God who came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the first. Accept me todayas a partaker of Your mystical supper, O Son of God, for I will not reveal Your mystery to Your enemies nor will I  give you a kiss as did Judas, but like the thief I confess to You:

Remember me, O Lord, when You shall come into Your kingdom.

Remember me, O Master, when You shall come into Your kingdom.

Remember me, O Holy One, when You shall come into Your kingdom.

May the partaking of Your Holy mysteries, O Lord, be not for my judgement or condemnation, but for the healing of soul and body.

O Lord, I also believe and profess, that this, which I am about to receive,  is truly Your most precious body and Your life giving blood, which, I pray, make me worthy to receive for the remission of all my sins and for life everlasting. Amen.

O God, have mercy on me a sinner.

O God, cleanse me of my sins and have mercy on me.

O Lord, forgive me for I have sinned without number.
