Seventeenth Sunday After Pentecost.

Today October 1, 2017 we celebrate the feast day of the Protection of the Mother of God. We welcome all our parishioners and guests.

“Today the Virgin stands in the midst of the Church, and with choirs of Saints she invisibly prays to God for us. Angels and Bishops venerate Her, Apostles and prophets rejoice together, Since for our sake she prays to the Eternal God!”

Troparion (4): Protected by your coming, O Mother of God, the faithful people solemnly celebrate today; and gazing upon your immaculate image, they humbly say: Watch over us with your noble protection, and deliver us from all evil by asking your Son, Christ our God, to save our souls.

Тропар (4): Сьогодні ми, благовірні люди, радісно святкуємо, осяяні Твоїм, Божа Мати, явлінням і, дивлячись на Твій пречистий образ, щиро просимо: Покрий нас святим Твоїм покровом і визволь нас від усякого зла, благаючи Сина Твого, Христа Бога нашого, щоб спас душі наші
