With the Saints give rest, O Christ, to the soul of Your servant where there is no pain,

nor sorrow, nor suffering; but life everlasting.

 Μετά των Αγίων ανάπαυσον, Χριστέ, τας ψυχάς των δούλων σου,

ένθα ουκ έστι πόνος, ου λύπη, ου στεναγμός, αλλά ζωή ατελεύτητος.



"All who have been baptized into Christ, have put on Christ. Alleluia"

We welcome into the Greek Orthodox Faith


"Join them together in oneness of mind; crown them with wedlock into one flesh;

Grant to them the fruit of the womb, and the gain of well favored children."
