Can I receive communion in your church?

In the Orthodox Church, the Eucharist (communion) is a sacramental act where the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ are made present as an expression of The Church, the Body of Christ, as the body of believers who profess the same truths and worship God in the same Spirit.

As such, communion is reserved only for baptized and chrismated Orthodox Christians who have prepared themselves through prayer, fasting, and recent confession.

As a visitor you may be given a piece of blessed bread which we offer as sign of a friendship and our wish to be in communion with you. Please partake of this bread and especially join us for Coffee Hour fellowship after the service.
