“Man of God,” the award-winning movie about the inspirational life of our beloved Orthodox saint, Saint Nektarios of Aegina was a box office success on the first night of its two-night-only release, finishing in fourth position among the top-five highest grossing films, behind “The Batman”, “Jujutsu Kaisen 0” and “Uncharted” on Monday, March 21.

“‘Man of God’ is a great choice for Lenten viewing, reminding us to do our part in trampling the accuser under our feet as we pursue the unglamorous path of holiness,” said Andrew Petiprin in his review of the movie for Word on Fire. “‘Man of God: Finally, a movie tailor-made for Lent” said David Ives in his review of the movie for Aleteia. “‘Man of God’ is a surprising work of cinematic Lenten devotion” says Nick Olszyk in his review for The Catholic World Report.

“Man of God” was originally scheduled to be released in select theaters nationwide for one night only (March 21). But, due to popular demand, Fathom Events added another showing, on March 28.

Don't miss this last opportunity to gather your families and friends together to experience this beautiful film on the big screen.

You can watch the “Man of God” trailer HERE!

Exiled unjustly, convicted without a trial and slandered without cause, St. Nektarios of Aegina’s life was one of persecution and prosecution. A priest of the common people, St. Nektarios’s popularity provoked the jealousy of the clergy in Alexandria and, as a result, he was defrocked and expelled from Egypt. In contrast to his religious “superiors”, Nektarios cared for the poor, taught peasant girls to read and write, and performed miracles. Even his last moment on earth was used to help another: upon his death, Nektarios’ undergarment was removed, and as it fell upon a paralyzed man in the hospital bed next to him, the lame man miraculously arose to walk. So, too, do we hope MAN OF GOD will awaken the paralyzed faith in audiences around the world.

Nektarios was recognized as a saint in the Eastern Orthodox Church in 1961, and his feast day is celebrated Nov. 9. The music for the film was composed by two-time French Cesar winner Zbigniew Preisner with special performance by Golden Globe winner Lisa Gerrard.

Liturgy of Presanctified gifts

Friday, April 1, 2022 at 6 p.m.

Clergy from other parishes in the Washington deanery will join us next Friday. It is a tradition that during Great Lent, we have at least one joint service in each parish.

After Liturgy, we will have Lenten dinner followed by a lecture and questions and answer session. The guest priest will be Fr. Ivan Marjanovic from Portland, ME.

If you plan to receive Holy Communion at this Liturgy, please abstain from food from noontime.

Литургија Пређеосвећених дарова

Петак, 1. април - 18 часова

У идући петак ћемо имати част да у нашем храму угостимо свештенике из других парохија, што је традиција да бар једна служба у току Великог поста буде заједничка.

После Литургије ће бити послужена вечера у сали за све присутне уз предавање и разговор на духовне теме. Гостујући свештеник ће бити Протојереј Ставрофор Иван Марјановић из Портланда.

Уколико планирате да се причестите на Пређеосвећеној Литургији, треба прекинути са узимањем хране од ручка (подне).


During Great Lent, you can schedule confession any weekday, on Saturdays after Vespers, and one hour prior to Presanctified Liturgy Wednesdays and Fridays. If you cannot come to church on these days, you can come on Sundays but no later than 8:30 a.m. 


У току Великог поста се може заказати исповест са свештеником радним даном у било које време, суботом после Вечерње службе, уколико има Вечерње, као и сат времена пре Пређеосвећених Литургија средом и петком. Ако сте далеко и не може ни један од ових термина, можете доћи недељом у 8.30 ујутру.

Sunday of Veneration of the Cross

When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”

And He said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that there are some standing here who will not taste death till they see the kingdom of God present with power.”

Недеља Крстопоклона

И дозвавши народ с ученицима својим рече им: Ко хоће за мном да иде нека се одрекне себе и узме крст свој, и за мном иде. Јер ко хоће душу своју да сачува, изгубиће је; а ко изгуби душу своју мене ради и јеванђеља онај ће је сачувати. Јер каква је корист човеку ако задобије сав свет, а души својој науди? Или какав ће откуп дати човек за душу своју? Јер ко се постиди мене и мојих речи у роду овом прељуботворном и грешном, и Син ће се човечји постидети њега кад дође у слави Оца свог с анђелима светима.

И рече им: Заиста вам кажем: имају неки међу овима што стоје овде који неће окусити смрт док не виде царство Божје да дође у сили.
