My Beloved Friends and Parishioners of Saint Spyridon,

"Do not be afraid; henceforth you will be catching men." These words spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ to His disciples are words of authority. When Jesus rose from the dead He was not only victorious over evil, but also gave us hope. Hope is like the light we, as Christians, are carrying to the world. Hope opposes fear. Hope becomes a means for bearing Christ’s witness. Hope is the main instrument of Christ's disciples.

This Sunday, we will have the joy and blessing to welcome the students and staff of St. Basil Academy. After the Divine Liturgy, we will be attending our annual Yankees Game!

Moreover, come and meet our teachers of the Hellenic Education Program Sophia during our Open House and Registration, on Sunday, September 22 after church. If you cannot be there, please contact us via email, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

With Christ’s love,

Fr. Nicolas

"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.


Before reserving a reception hall for your wedding, remember to verify that the church allows weddings on that day.
