International Village - 2018

International Village week begins August 14th, 2018.  We invite all visitors to the festival to please stop by the Serbian Foods Booth.  Serbian food can be characterized by a mixture of Greek, Mediterranean, Turkish–Oriental and cuisine of Austro–Hungarian Empires as well as medieval Slavic influences.  The Serbian Booth allows you to taste some of the rich meats, vegetables, cheese, fresh pastries and desserts that are popular in Serbia.

Volunteers and donations are welcome to help us support this important community event.  Please visit the International Village section of the website for more details!  Thank You!


Prayer for Communities Suffering In Violence
A Prayer For God's Help!

"O Lord God of Hosts, God of our salvation, Who alone does wonders:  in mercy and goodness, look upon Your humble servants, and as the Lover of Mankind, hear us and have mercy on us! For behold, enemies of our communities have gathered together to destroy us and to bring ruin and destruction in our families.  Hear us, O God our Savior, and deliver us, for the Glory of Your Name, and grant that we may say with truth, as did Moses when he spoke to the Israelites and said:  'Be bold, and stand fast; and you shall see the salvation that comes from the Lord, for the Lord shall fight for you!'  Yea, O God, our Savior, our Strength, our Hope, and our Protection:  remember not the sins and the unrighteousness of Your people, and do not turn away from us because of Your anger; but in mercy and goodness look upon Your humble servants who bow down before Your loving-kindness.  Rise up to help us, and grant that we may be victorious in this conflict.  Grant forgiveness of sins to those, who in the mystery of Your Dispensation, may lose their lives in this cndeavor, and in the day of Your just retribution, bestow upon them crowns of incorruption.  For You are the Protection, the Victory, and the Salvation of those who hope on You, and to You we ascribe glory:  to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages, Amen!"

Offered on behalf of ALL the local communities in the Mon-Valley that are struggling to overcome the mindless violence that is permeating our neighborhoods this Summer.....Eve of Vidovdan, 2018


Our Teaching Liturgy video (filmed on May 13, 2018) is finally HERE!  We hope you (people of all faiths) find the video both interesting and informative.  It should give you an understanding of what the Holy Orthodox Faith is about, and why we as Orthodox Christians, celebrate the Divine Liturgy the way we do.  If you choose to watch the Teaching Liturgy directly on YouTube's website, you can navigate to key portions of the video by referencing the video description.   We THANK ALL who made this video possible and especially God for allowing our congregation to come together to make this wonderful, lasting memory.
