"For since the creation of the world, his invisible things are clearly seen. They are perceived through created things, even his everlasting power and divinity." -- Romans 1:20 Eastern Greek Orthodox Bible
We are a Christian mission parish on the island of Maui under the Greek Orthodox Metropolis Of San Francisco. As a mission parish of the Greek Orthodox Church, we are a small community following a traditional expression of Christian faith and worship as practiced over millennia by the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. Maui is a unique location for a mission parish as it is at the nexus of visiting Orthodox Christians from all around the world.
Currently we celebrate Divine Liturgy service at least once a month, usually the fourth Saturday, and sometimes more often. Whether you live on Maui or are just visiting the Island for a short time, whether you are an Orthodox Christian or just seeking to experience the original practice of the early Christian church for the first time, we welcome you to join us and participate in the celebrations.
Immediately following our services, we host a fellowship hour for the purpose of fostering community within our parish and welcoming visitors. So, if you attend a service, please feel free to join us afterwards for coffee and snacks.
Our calendar of scheduled events is posted here:
March 24 | Orthros 9:30AM | Divine Liturgy 10:30AM | St. Cecelia | First & Forefeast of the Annunciation of the Most Holy Theotokos
Please note: The Lenten fast began Monday, February 19th. On March 24th, we are observing the fast from meat, fish, dairy and eggs. Thank you for your willingness to share with the parish during fellowship hour.
Saint Gregory of Nyssa in "On the Song of Songs": For this is the safest way to protect the good things you enjoy: Realize how much your Creator has honored you above all other creatures. He did not make the heavens in his image, nor the moon, the sun, the beauty of the stars or anything else which surpasses understanding. You alone are a reflection of eternal beauty, a receptacle of happiness, an image of the true light. And, if you look at him, you will become what he is, imitating him who shines within you, whose glory is reflected in your purity. Nothing in the entire creation can equal your grandeur. All the heavens can fit into the palm of the hand of God... Although he is so great that he can hold all creation in his palm, you can wholly embrace him. He dwells within you.
We are so happy to have celebrated our first service in 2018, The Theophany of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, with His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos and His Grace Bishop Apostolos this past Saturday. The visit by His Eminence and His Grace was a great blessing to our mission parish. Χρονια Πολλα!
