Welcome to Our Diocese!


PASCHA: The Resurrection of our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ - 04/20/14

This is the day of resurrection! Let us be illumined by the feast! Let us embrace each other! Let us call “brothers” even those that hate us, and forgive all by the resurrection, and so let us cry: “Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!” (Paschal Canon)

Bishop Michael’s Archpastoral Letter >


Great and Holy Saturday - 04/19/14

The great Moses mystically foreshadowed this day when he said: “God blessed the seventh day.” This is the blessed Sabbath; this is the day of rest, on which the only-begotten Son of God rested from all His works. By suffering death to fulfill the plan of salvation, He kept the Sabbath in the flesh; by returning again to what He was, He has granted us eternal life through His Resurrection, for He alone is good and the Lover of man.  (Vespers of Holy Saturday)


Great and Holy Friday - 04/18/14

Today He who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon the tree of the cross.  The King of the Angels is adorned with a crown of thorns.  He who wraps the heavens in clouds is wrapped in a purple robe of mockery.  He who is the new Adam, manifested at His baptism in the Jordan, is slapped on the face.  The Bridegroom of the Church is affixed to the cross with nails.  The Son of the Virgin is crucified and pierced by a spear.  We worship Your passion, O Christ!  We worship Your passion, O Christ!  We worship Your passion, O Christ!  Show us also Your glorious resurrection!  (Antiphon Fifteen)


Great and Holy Thursday - 04/17/14

When Your glorious disciples were enlightened at the washing of their feet before the supper, then the impious Judas was darkened by the disease of avarice, and to the lawless judges he betrayed You, the Righteous Judge. Behold, O lover of money, this man Judas who because of avarice hanged himself. Flee from the insatiable desire which dared such things against the Master! O Lord who deals righteously with all, glory to You! (Troparion of Holy Thursday).


- 04/14/14

As the Savior went to his passion, he said to his friends: “Everyone will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another. Be at peace with one another and with every one. Be of humble mind, and you will be exalted. Acknowledge me as Lord! Praise and extol me to all ages." (Matins of Holy Monday)


PALM SUNDAY: Entry of Our Lord into Jerusalem - 04/13/14

You have entered the Holy City, O Lord, riding on the colt of an ass; hastening to Your Passion that the Law and the Prophets might be fulfilled. The Hebrew children greeted You with palms and branches heralding Your victorious Resurrection. Blessed are You, O Savior!  Have mercy on us!  (Vespers of Palm Sunday)


MANVILLE NJ: Outreach to Community - 04/12/14

The Orthodox churches of Saints Peter and Paul, Holy Ghost, Saint Mary and Saint Athanasius (Manville NJ) participated in creating 32 meal baskets and Easter baskets for those in need. In addition to the participating churches, Christ the King School in Manville also donated items. The project, on 12 April 2014, was a wonderful team effort among those participating in outreach to the local community during the season of Great Lent.


PEARL RIVER NY: Holy Mystery of Unction - 04/11/14

The Orthodox Christian Church of the Holy Transfiguration in Pearl River NY celebrated the Holy Mystery of Unction with Bishop Michael and 6 concelebrating priests on Tuesday evening, 8 April 2014.
