Also, take the time to read this inspiring message from His Grace, Bishop Alexis.

Holy Monday 2020

By raising Lazarus from the dead before Thy passion,

Thou didst confirm the universal resurrection, O Christ God.

Like the children with the palms of victory,

we cry out to Thee, O Vanquisher of Death:

"Hosanna in the highest!

Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord."


Father Stephan recorded a video message.


Although Divine Liturgy will not be celebrated at Holy Resurrection we can still celebrate our Lord's Entrance into Jerusalem.  You are encouraged to view livestream services.  Two options would be from Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Ellwood City, PA and St. Tikhon's Monastery in South Canaan, PA.  For St. Tikhon's, once you click on the Live Stream button and it takes you to YouTube select Home for the live stream.

Fr. Stephan recorded a video message.  It is also available on our Facebook page.


There is no Divine Liturgy on Sunday, April 5, 2020 as we are still following the directive of the bishop.  Please see the links on the website for churches that are livestreaming services. Information has been received from the Holy Synod and His Eminence, Archbishop Melchisideck, giving guidance for Holy Week and Pascha.  We will update both the webpage and our Facebook page next week with more information.

This list may have changed due to restrictions by the bishop of the dioceses involved.  The Orthodox Monastery of the Transfiguration will be having service tomorrow and will be livestreaming it: Hours and Akathist at 8:45 am, Divine Liturgy at 9:30 am.

The OCA churches below will be doing live streams of their services:

Per the directive of Archbishop Melchisedek ALL services are cancelled through the end of March.  Additionally, confessions are suspended during this time.  If you have an emergency, please call.  I will not, however, be doing my normal visits to the shut-ins.  Feel free to use this prayer service as part of your prayer life.  More details will follow and will be posted on here and our Facebook page.

Be safe and wash your hands!

Fr. Stephan

Our journey to Pascha begins on Feb. 9, 2020 with the Publican and the Pharisee.  Hopefully this chart will help you with Your Journey to Pascha 2020.
