Church Etiquette or Some Things You Should Know While In Church by Fr. David Barr

Attending Christ the Saviour Parish

SERVICE SCHEDULE - please check out our current schedule (link) and contact our priest (email) if you have any questions before you make your first visit.

FAMILIES AND CHILDREN - We want everyone to participate in our services, therefore, it is extremely important to us that both parents and children feel comfortable in our church. Our services are quite long, so if at any point you need to take your child out of the sanctuary, please feel free to do so. There is space in the vestibule, as well as in the basement if your kids need a break :) 

COMMUNION - Holy Communion is only for members of the Orthodox Church who have prepared themselves through prayer, fasting and regular confession. However, everyone is welcome to come forward and to partake of the blessed bread at the conclusion of the service.

COFFEE HOUR - All are welcome to join us for coffee hour after the Divine Liturgy on Sunday mornings and for potluck dinners after Presanctified Liturgies during Great Lent.

Last But Not Least


When you enter the church please make sure to sign our guest book located on the left as your enter. Also, make sure to pick up a bulletin or check out it out a digital copy of our latest bulletin on our homepage.
