Each Sunday, after the celebration of the Divine Liturgy has concluded, a fellowship Coffee Hour is held in the parish hall downstairs. It's a time for friends to chat and enjoy each other's company, and to meet new friends and guests who have joined us for the Liturgy.
Since Orthodox Christians fast from midnight the night before a Divine Liturgy, in order to prepare for receiving Holy Communion, Coffee Hour also provides a little something to eat. Christian fellowship is central to our experience of Orthodoxy, most especially following the sanctity of the Divine Liturgy.

Our usual practice is to offer bagels and condiments
with coffee and juice during Coffee Hour.
However, you can choose to bring your own baked

part of the Coffee Hour and we ask that
sponsors a Coffee Hour coordinate the
clearing the tables, and
cleaning up the kitchen
(so far as it is messed)
wash the dishes used during
their Coffee Hour.
