“I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  
John 8:12

We invite you to light a virtual candle at St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church.

Upon entering an Orthodox church it is customary to light candles and offer prayers for one’s personal needs or that of a family member or friend. Candles are lit before icons as a sign of one’s faith and hope in God’s help that is always sent to all who turn to Him and His Saints with faith and prayers. In practice, when lighting a candle in Church the faithful usually make a small offering to the Church. By lighting a candle and offering a prayer, one enters into closer contact with the Church and her ministry to the faithful, invisibly warming the soul by the visible light of the candle.




Please help support the Agape Pantry which is an outreach program from the Philoptochos Ladies to our Saint Spyridon community NYC.

We are happy to announce that we will begin our free Byzantine music lessons on Sunday, October 18, 2020!
We look forward to creating a group of chanters who will glorify God through their voices and talents.

We are happy to announce that with God's grace, our Sunday School program will resume this Sunday, October 4, 2020.

Following the Divine Liturgy, we will have an Agiasmo service for the beginning of the school year and we will pray so that our children and teachers have a productive, fun, and spiritually beneficial year.
We will of course be following the proper social distancing guidelines for the safety of all.
We look forward to seeing and welcoming all our wonderful children back to school!
A Blessed Sunday School Year to all!!

Today we had our OXI Day Doxology and Celebration following the Divine Liturgy. We came together as a community to honor the courage and sacrifices of our ancestors and remember the fallen heroes of Greece. Our voices echoed in our beautiful Church as we loudly sung our Greek National Anthem. Our Ladies Philoptochos also presented a scholarship to a dedicated high school graduate of our community, Frederiki Tsekas, for all her hard work and support of our community. Glory to God for all things! Ζήτω η Ελλάδα μας!!!

October 4, 2020:

Sunday School began today with a beautiful Agiasmos service. Our children prayed with us during the Divine Liturgy and received the blessing of our Lord, our Panagia, and our patron saint, St. Spyridon for a productive school year. It was so wonderful to see many of our children brighten our church and our classrooms again. Our community is blessed with dedicated Sunday School teachers, faithful parents, and exceptional students who are eager to learn about Christ. May God continue to bless all who diligently serve our Sunday Scool and may He enlighten and protect our children.
Wishing everyone a blessed and safe school year!
