Nativity of Christ

On Jan. 7th (new style) the parish celebrated the Nativity of Christ. We would like to especially thank Fr. John Breck for serving as πρῶτος on this wonderful occasion. Also thanks to those who assisted with the activities in preparation for the feast day. (Note from site staff: We will be updating the gallery page in the coming days with many new pictures. Stay Tuned!)

Troparion (Tone 4)
Thy Nativity, O Christ our God,
Has shined the Light of knowledge upon the world!
Thereby they that worshipped the stars,
Were instructed by a Star,
To worship Thee the Sun of Righteousness,
And to know Thee, the Dayspring from on High.
O Lord, glory to Thee!

Kontakion (Tone 3)

Today the Virgin gives birth to the Transcendent One,
And the earth offers a cave to the Unapproachable One!
Angels with shepherds glorify Him!
The wise men journey with a star!
Since for our sake the Eternal God was born as a Little Child!
