  • ST. BASIL'S CHURCH WILL STRIVE TO GLORIFY GOD THROUGH 

ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN WORSHIP,

SINCERE LOVE AND CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER,

AND SERVICE TO THOSE IN NEED AROUND US                  

May 16, 2022, the feast day of St Theodosius of the Kievan Caves, at two o’clock New York time, following a lengthy illness, His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion (Kapral) of Eastern America and New York, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, reposed in the Lord, in a NYC hospital.  

On Saturday, May 21, the Divine Liturgy will be served at 7:30 am at the ROCOR Cathedral of Our Lady of the Sign in NYC, to be followed at 10:30 am by the funeral service.  The burial wil take place on Sunday, May 22 at 3:00 pm at Holy Trinity Monastery, Jordanville, NY.

On Saturday, May 21, at 5:00 pm, we will serve a panikhida here at St. Basil's for the repose of Vladika Hilarion's soul.  May his memory be eternal!

Welcome! It is always an honor and a privilege when we have visitors worship with us at St. Basil’s.  Please consider filling out a “Visitor’s Card” at the Candle Desk and joining us for Coffee Hour after the liturgy. Please keep in mind that we have certain traditions and practices that perhaps you may not be accustomed to.  For example, modest and proper attire should be worn.  We do not practice so-called "Eucharistic hospitality" or "inter-Communion."  Only Baptized Orthodox Christians who have been to Holy Confession recently may receive Holy Communion.  If you are an Orthodox visitor and plan to receive Holy Communion, please call Fr. Peter ahead of time (518-273-6262).  

All Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals must be scheduled ahead of time with Fr. Peter.  Not all days and times are permitted.  All canonical, traditional and liturgical practices of the Church must be followed and adhered to.  Normally sacraments are scheduled only by Baptized Orthodox Christians who go to church, go to Confession and receive Holy Communion on a regular basis.  All Baptisms must be discussed with the parents of the child ahead of time.  Please call Fr. Peter if you are interested in scheduling a sacrament (518-273-6262).  Thank you!

 

St. Basil's Orthodox Church is a Christian community of people from various ethnic and social backgrounds sharing a common commitment to the Lord, each other, and the Apostolic Faith. We warmly welcome all families, couples, and individuals who are looking for a deeper experience of the salvation offered in Jesus Christ. Come and see!
