Daily Streamed Services Info: Updated August 20, 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

Glory be to Jesus Christ!  Glory forever!

We have been live streaming and uploading youtube versions of daily services (scroll down on this page) celebrated by Fr. Steven and Matushka Cindy, and/or parish faitfhful through zoom, at their home for some months now.  Holy Transfiguration parish has celebrated daily services for many years, and this is in keeping with that practice. It has been quite heartening to receive photos of faithful placing i-pads in their icon corners to pray together with us;  we have also heard feedback from as far as Alaska and Florida that many are joining us for these services during such challenging times.  As we are beginning to open the church at the present time, these services are augmenting those celebrated in church.

Please note that since these services are live-streamed and uploaded as youtube videos daily, it now takes a good deal of time for this page to load for viewing.  Consequently, services from March through May are now on a separate page, here.  Below are services beginning June 1 through the present. 

To see the service schedule, please click here to view weekly bulletins.  This is shared with all our faithful each week, with the schedule of services celebrated at our home so all can join us.  Links found there include access to our facebook page that you can also reference here.  Each day on the live stream and recorded version of services, Fr. Steven verbally shares the service schedule for the coming days also.  If you "like" our facebook page, you will actually receive notifications when we "go live" with services.

Please join us in prayer as we continue to celebrate the liturgical services as fully as possible from home during our continued coronavirus pandemic.

With prayers and love in Christ,

Fr. Steven

Service Texts for the 9th Sunday after Pentecost

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

This weekend we continue the celebration of our patronal feast of the Transfiguration of our Lord, and the 50th anniversary of the Glorificadtion of St. Herman of Alaska.  We will celebrate Vespers at 5:00pm EDT, and the Obednitsa on Sunday at 9:00am.  You can find service texts here.

We celebrated in April the 50th anniversary of the granting of our autocephaly.  Only months later, in August, we now celebratethe 50th anniversary of the glorification of St. Herman!  These are most significant foundational moments for our Orthodox Church in America.  May we learn well the lessons offered through these anniversary markers, and continue our best efforts to carry forward the precious gift of Orthodoxy here in North America, through the prayers of all the saints, known and unknown, who have shown forth in this land!

A brief video presentation was shared during virtual coffee hour this morning of Fr. Steven's pilgrimage to Kokiak and Spruce Island in 1986.  You can view it here.  As a member of the immigrant community coming to North America, he was indeed blessed to encounter the missionary roots of Orthodoxy in North America, through the Alaskan faithful descended from those encountering the early missionaries like St. Herman and St. Innocent!

Holy Transfiguration Church Holds Parish Retreat

The Holy Transfiguration Church Community actively prepared for the Pentecost Feast on multiple levels.  These levels included the church itself through iconography underway and preparations for the feast, and the parish pastor and faithful through a very meaningful retreat!   Please see the gallery of photos to reflect this preparation.

Archpriest Theodore Jurewicz, and his son John Jurewicz, arrived at Holy Transfiguration Church on Monday, June 3rd and will be with us through most of this month.  John has become an accomplished icongrapher in working with his father.   They have been working to complete iconography in the church that has been underway now for literally decades!  It is nothing short of incredible to see their work take more definitive shape each day!

On Saturday, June 15th, Fr. Steven and parish faithful welcomed Archimandrite Sergius (Bowyer), Abbot of St. Tikhon's Monastery.  He led a retreat entitled, "Acquiring the Mind of Christ".   Fr. Sergius shared that any effort to ascend spiritual heights is accompanied by descent into spiritual struggle.  Referencing corporate worship (daily services) Fr. Sergius indicated this being half the effort of transformation, with the other half reflected in personal prayer of each of the faithful.  Of the latter, Fr. Sergius spoke of relationship with Christ as even more important than the rule of prayer, inviting retreat partipants to enter into the inner movement of their heart in calling out to God.  He quoted many fathers, including St. John Climacus in sharing that "prayer is converse and union with God".  Later in the retreat Fr. Sergius shared a sample rule of prayer that includes actions, prayer, reading, to involve all aspects of our being in prayer. 

Following the retreat, those gathered celebrated the Vigil for Pentecost.  Archimandrite Sergius stayed to join in the celebration of the Litya during Vespers.  With all of these active preparations, the celebration of the Festal services was even more full!  Thanks be to God for Fr. Sergius being with us, and may this retreat day bear fruit through the Grace of the Holy Spirit!
