Holy Mother Queen of All
Panagia Pantovasilissa Greek Orthodox Church
The Light of Christ in the Commonwealth
Welcome!

We are a community of Christians who are following the ancient tradition of the Orthodox Church, the original church that was born in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost. In the Holy Spirit and through our Lord Jesus Christ, we try to continue “steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in prayers” [Acts 2:42], being “led by the Spirit of God” to become “sons of God”. [Romans 8:14]

 

We did our best to present ourselves in the pages of this website, but nothing can replace a personal relationship, so we hope you will come and visit us “and speak face to face, so that your joy may be made full.” [2 John 1:12] We worship throughout the week, seeking to follow the command of the Apostle Paul to "pray without ceasing". [1 Thessalonians 5: 17] Feel free to come to visit and to pray with us. You are always welcome in the House of the Lord!

Nativity Fast Youth Retreat

On December 2nd we hosted our 2017 Winter Youth Retreat. The theme was "Glory be to God in all things!" The children learned to connect the spirit of the American holiday of Thanksgiving with the spirit of thanksgiving which we should always cultivate towards God for all that He has given us, especially His Incarnation! Many thanks to the adult and youth volunteers who made the retreat a success!

Holy Week and Pascha in Our New Church

Holy Week and Pascha

Holy Week of 2017 will remain in the history of our church as the week when we moved and had the first services in our new church.

Everything was moved in on Holy Monday evening, April 10th. On Tuesday evening, we had the service of Blessing of Waters for our new church and the Bridegroom Matins. The following days, we had all the Holy Week and Pascha services in our new church. Glory to God for making us worthy to live such moments!
