Christ is Risen!  Truly He is Risen!

Receiving the Holy Fire - On this Sunday of the Holy Myrrh Bearing women and Saints Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus, we welcome the Holy Fire of 2018.  Our Metropolitan Hilarion received it at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Sign in Manhattan on the evening of Pascha.  Next morning, Bright Monday, he conveyed it to St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Howell, NJ, where a glorious Paschal Matins and Liturgy were served.  Yesterday, friends of the parish retrieved it from there, and brought it to us last evening during the vigil service.  The Saints of today displayed their sacrificial devotion in seeing to the material needs of the Lord after His Crucifixion.   We now, as it is in our power and with God’s help, will imitate their devotion to keep alight this long manifesting material evidence of the Lord’s Resurrection.  We owe Him nothing less.  “Behold, The Bridegroom cometh….”  We know that He is never absent from us, as He promised; the Fire is a small yet glorious part of the evidence.  We will pray together this evening at 7 the Pascal Canon to welcome the fire.  Please bring lanterns if you want to maintain the fire in your homes.

Orthodox Christianity: Founded 33 AD
Two thousand years ago, after receiving the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, the apostles of Christ went out from their native Israel to bring the Christian Faith to all the far reaches of the world. The ancient Christian Faith, founded so long ago, remains unchanged today and is found in the Orthodox Church. Holy Apostles Orthodox Church was founded with the purpose of bringing the Gospel and Divine Services of the Russian Orthodox Church to the people of America in the English language. We invite you to come to any of the Divine Services or events at our mission church.

Come and See.
