ARCHBISHOP MICHAEL: 9th Anniversary of Consecration

The clergy and faithful of the Diocese of New York and New Jersey express prayerful congratulations to our beloved Archpastor, His Eminence, Archbishop MICHAEL, on the 9th Anniversary of his Consecration to the Episcopacy (8 May 2010) and of his enthronement as the Ruling Hierarch of the Diocese of New York and New Jersey (9 May 2010). We are grateful to God and Vladyka for his continual outpouring of love, leadership, and dedication to the growth and salvation of his flock in this God-protected Diocese!



PASCHA: The Resurrection of our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ

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)

Paschal Letter from Archbishop Michael >



Great and Holy Saturday

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

Today the Master of creation stands before Pilate. Today the Creator of all is condemned to die on the Cross. Of His own will He is led as a Lamb to the slaughter. He Who fed His people with manna in the desert is transfixed with nails. His side is pierced, and a sponge of vinegar touches His lips. The Redeemer of the world is slapped on the face. The Maker of all is mocked by His own servants. How great is the Master’s love for mankind! For those who crucified Him, He prayed to His Father, saying: “Forgive them this sin, for they know not what they do!”  (Vespers of Holy Friday)



Great and Holy Thursday

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)



PEARL RIVER NY: Mystery of Holy Unction

Parishioners of Holy Transfiguration Church in Pearl River NY were joined by many other area Orthodox Christians on 16 April 2019 for the 12th annual unabridged sacrament of the Holy Mystery of Unction, celebrated by seven priests. The service was hosted by the Right Reverend Archimandrite Joseph (Hoffman), rector of the parish.  His Eminence, Archbishop Michael, was the main celebrant.



"Glory to Your Passion, O Lord!"

We have reached the saving Passion of Christ our God. Let us, the faithful, glorify His ineffable forbearance, that in His compassion He may raise us up who were dead in sin, for He is good and loves mankind!

(Bridegroom Matins of Holy Monday)
