After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY


Nativity Matins recording 2016

Nativity Greetings from Portland GOC

   A blessed Nativity to all our friends and benefactors for the Feast of the Nativity of our Lord, God and Saviour Jesus Christ.
    I have attached a link to Soundcloud.com where I recorded selections of the Matins from last night's agrypnia.  To note, when we were first made a Cathedral, we were asked to follow the Russian custom of treating the Cathedral as if the Ordinary were present at all times, which includes "Holy Master", the Many Years etc.
