FATHER NICOLAS' MESSAGE

My Beloved Friends and Parishioners of the Saint Spyridon family,

This Sunday is a very special day for our community. We have the honor and blessing to welcome His Eminence, Metropolitan Methodios of Boston and past priests of St. Spyridon for a time of prayer and worship. During the Divine Liturgy, many will discover the magnificent transformation that has occurred through the restoration of our church because of the generosity of many friends of St. Spyridon. Knowing our church has a special place in the heart of so many people, we are humbled by this legacy and hope, with your help, to continue bearing witness to the Good News of Christ’s resurrection in this most sacred Temple.

We look forward to welcoming all of you for this beautiful day of celebration, memories and fellowship.

With Christ’s love,

Fr. Nicolas

IN TIMES OF ILLNESS

"Come, O blessed of my father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was sick and you visited me." (Matt. 25:31-46).

When a member of our Parish is ill and has been hospitalized or may be recuperating at home, the immediate family of the ill person should contact Father Nicolas at (212) 795-5870. It is beneficial to both the body and the soul when our priest prays for us when we are healthy or ill.
