Sunday Before the Exaltation of the Holy Cross
Apodosis of the Feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos
Detour approaching the church: Another road project has closed Washington Road directly in front of the church. From Southern Blvd turn South at Olive Ave, go one block to Malverne Road, then turn left to the church.
Note - GPS directions are incorrect for the last block to the
church due to the ongoing bridge construction.
Important Notice: We now require masks inside the church and the Hellenic Cultural Center for all adults (vaccinated or not) and children at all parish worship and activities. This policy was implemented for the safety of all. The Parish Council will evaluate this COVID -19 protocol monthly as conditions in Palm Beach County change.
Holy Communion: When the faithful approach the Holy Chalice, they should stand with respect before the priest and say their baptismal/chrismation name. After the name is uttered, the faithful should open their mouth to receive Holy Communion. When the spoon goes into the mouth, the faithful should close their mouth and make sure that they swallow the consecrated Bread and Wine. Every person who stands before the Holy Chalice, should not have any contact with the red communion cloth, before, during, or after receiving Holy Communion. The red communion cloth is to be placed under each person’s chin by those who are assisting the clergy. Under no circumstances should the red communion cloth be used as a table napkin to wipe the mouth, nor should one who has received Holy Communion touch it at all.
Coffee and Fellowship: Our Philoptochos welcomes everyone to join us for the coffee and fellowship hour in our Hellenic Cultural Center following the Divine Liturgy. Today however, a special coffee hour by the Sunday School honoring grandparents.
