    Very interested in converting from Roman Catholic to Orthodox Catholic. I upon prayer and investigation find the Orthodox church true to the original Church fathers. Thank you and may God bless.

    I am interested in converting to orthodoxy and was told that I should attend Vespers before my first Sunday service. I was wondering if that would be alright. I really know nothing about what vespers is.

    Thanks and God bless,

    Hi Jacob,

    You’re welcome to any service, any time. Vespers is an evening service that marks the beginning of the new day in the Church. During Vespers, we read and sing psalms like “Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, Thou hast been magnified exceedingly” and “Lord, I have cried unto Thee, hearken unto me” along with hymns relevant to the feasts we’re celebrating. As at every divine service, we also pray for God’s peace for the whole world, for our hierarchs, for our civil authorities and armed forces, for seasonable weather, and the health, salvation, and unity of all in Christ.

    We also visit together after every Vespers service, and as there are fewer attendees at most Vespers services, that would afford you an opportunity to chat or ask questions afterward if you like.

    -Fr. Daniel

    I am considering moving from Barrington, IL to Summerville.  Are most parishioners Russian, or do you have a diverse parish?

    Hi Evelyn!

    We have a diverse parish of people from all over the world, including many folks born and raised here in the U.S. Many parishioners immigrated here from Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Romania, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Greece, or are the children of immigrants from those countries. Roughly half of the active parishioners are bilingual, with Russian as a first language, and the other half speaks only English. We conduct services in a bilingual fashion, based on who’s in church for a given service.

    Take care and God bless you for a safe move to the Summerville area!

    With love in Christ,
    Fr. Daniel
