Note on Partaking of Holy Communion at evening Liturgy: Please keep in mind and practice the rule of abstaining from any drink or food from noon until Communion is offered when participating in Holy Communion at evening Liturgy. Those who are ill or on medications are not required to observe this rule strictly. However, even they should abstain at least an hour or two before the beginning of Liturgy.

Christ is Risen! Khristos Anesti! Khristos Voskrese!
"Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus" (Philip. 4:4-7).
May the joy of Pascha fill our hearts with love for our Lord and one another, and may the light of the Empty Tomb shine on our path to His Kingdom. On behalf of the Parish Council, I wish you all a blessed and Happy Easter! In the glory of the Risen Lord, Fr. George A. Alexson- Presiding Priest

Help Us Secure Our Permanent Home!
We are working diligently to pursue a 6.3-acre parcel of land along Russell Branch Parkway, Ashburn! It is located near major mixed-use developments such as: One Loudoun, Commonwealth Center (Top Golf), and Kincora. In October 2016, our Stewards agreed to proceed with vetting the property.
 
Learn More...!
We are excited the final piece of Pacific Boulevard, which links to Russell Branch Parkway, along this parcel of land, will open. READ MORE
We are embarking on a vigorous capital campaign to purchase this land. We invite you to help us secure a permanent home.  Please donate to our Building Fund today!
