The Church has reopened for normal services. As of today November 20th, the Vigil for Archangel Michael will be served at 6pm. For all other services refer to service schedule. At this point we will be limited to a capacity of 25 people and will continue to observe social distancing and wearing masks. It is very important to note that if you or any family member are sick or have any respiratory symptoms or fever please abstain from coming to church for two weeks.
We ask you to help us implement these guidelines for the health and safety of our community. May God bless you all.

Archpriest Boris Henderson
ATTENTION: Due to the second wave of COVID-19 and per health guidelines we are limited on the capacity of people that can enter the church. At this time the church is open for Parish members only.  NO visitors or guests until further notice.
Reminder: The other Stage 2 restrictions and rules are still in force:
  1. A limited amount of member worshipers, as per current Colorado State mandate, will be allowed in the church per service.
  2. Parishioners must ensure 6-foot distancing and use of face coverings.
  3. Church Attendance: Please attend church by staggering your attendance. For example; come every 2nd or 3rd week. This allows everyone the opportunity to attend church while staying safe.
  4. In the church, we will refrain from venerating and kissing icons, the chalice, and the priest’s hand. A simple bow will be appropriate. This will be the practice until the pandemic passes.
  5. Confession will be done during vigil. You must wear a mask. Do not use masks with an exhale valve.
  6. If you are sick or have any respiratory symptoms or fever please stay home and do not come to any services until you have fully recovered.
  7. Please note that we can use School parking lot only on Sundays.

Nativity Fast
28 November – 6 January

The Nativity fast begins on November 28, and lasts forty days. This period of fasting begins directly after the commemoration of the Holy Apostle Philip, on November 28 according to the Church calendar, and concludes with the Nativity Feast itself. The Nativity fast is not as strict as Great Lent or the Dormition fast, and can be compared to the Apostle’s fast: fish can be eaten on every Saturday and Sunday, as well as on festal days of the Church calendar that do not fall on Wednesday or Friday. It was instituted by the Church so that we would worthily greet the feast of the Nativity of Christ after having cleansed our hearts by prayer and repentance.

St. John (Maximovitch): Nothing is Fearful for the Person Whose Hope is in God

Where can I go from Thy Spirit, and where can I escape from Thy presence? If I go up into heaven, Thou art there; if I go down into hades, Thou art present there. If I take up my wings toward the dawn, and make mine abode in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there shall Thy hand guide me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.” (Psalm 138: 7-10)
These divinely inspired words of the Psalmist David should be particularly in our thoughts during these days, when the entire world is literally quaking, and from every direction comes news of all kinds of distress, shocks and calamities.
Before you can concentrate on what is occurring in one country, you are distracted by even more threatening events which have unexpectedly erupted someplace else; and before you can get a grasp on them, yet other news distracts your attention to still some other location, forcing you to lose track of the previous ones, even though they have by no means reached their conclusion.
