Please join us Sunday evening, June 13, at 5:00pm, as we celebrate Vespers for the Feast of the Elevation of Holy and Life-Creating Cross.
O Lord, save Your people, / and bless Your inheritance. / Grant victories to the Orthodox Christians / over their adversaries. / And by virtue of Your Cross, / preserve Your habitation. — Troparion for the Feast
The Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross is one of the twelve Great Feasts in the Church and commemorates the finding of the Holy Cross by St. Helen, mother of St. Constantine. For more information on this feast, see this article from the Orthodox Church in America website.
