On Saturday, June 19, at 5:00 PM, we celebrate Great Vespers in the temple but streamed online.
On Sunday, June 20, at 9:30 AM, we celebrate the Divine Liturgy in the temple but streamed online. A PDF version of our weekly bulletin is available on our Parish News page.
After the Liturgy, we will immediately celebrate Vespers of Pentecost with the Kneeling Prayers.
 
 

The Feast of Pentecost comes on Sunday, June 20. On that day, we celebrate the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples, enabling them to speak the good news of Jesus Christ to all peoples and be understood in all languages. Since Pascha, the feast of the resurrection, we have been honoring our Lord’s rising from the grave by remaining standing in prayer, but at Kneeling Vespers of Pentecost (immediately after the Divine Liturgy that Sunday), we kneel for the first time. 

We will pray for the departed and for ourselves, that the Holy Spirit would give us the power to live holy lives, according to the example of the Apostles. With God’s strength and love never departing from us, we have undergone many trials as a people in the last year and it is right and needful that we ask the Lord’s mercy on our suffering world.

 For all liturgical services in the temple of SS. Peter & Paul, you can participate online via our YouTube livestream. No meeting software will be used, unless specifically announced.
 
While most services will be livestreamed on YouTube, for certain church meetings and worship services not hosted in the temple, use the Zoom meeting invitation below:
