CHRIST IS RISEN! INDEED, HE IS RISEN!
Our sunrise Pascha Services celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ began at 5:30am on April 16, 2017. This brought great joy to the 383 worshippers, which is a record for our parish.
We begin in the dark Church, as the Paschal Candle is lit. From this Light all receive light. We bear this light in procession around the Church as the sun begins to rise.
We enter the temple again with joyous singing led by our choir, chanters, and clergy for the service of Pascha Orthros and Pascha Divine Liturgy.
After the Divine Liturgy, we enjoy a festive brunch in the parish hall with an Easter Egg Hunt for the Children, and then Agape Vespers.
We wish all of you a Blessed Pascha Season!
“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come” (2 Cor 5: 17).
Read Fr. Thomas Hopko's teaching on the "Resurrection" at our Archdiocese Website:
The mission of St. Luke Orthodox Christian Church is to be a beacon of Orthodox Christian spiritual life in Erie, eastern Boulder County, and the northern Denver metropolitan area. We strive together to live our Orthodox Christian Faith in a healthy way that forms Christian character, by participating regularly in the services, prayers, disciplines, and Sacraments of the Holy Orthodox Church. The community of St. Luke calls all people to Christ in His Church. We share the joy of Christ in our lives with those around us, educating people about the truth of this ancient faith in the Holy Trinity. We offer the love of Christ to those in need, in both word and action.
We welcome you to visit our parish to experience and learn about us. Orthodox Christianity has remained faithful to its roots that go back to the churches established by the Apostles, in the Holy Land, Greece, and beyond. Our mother Church of Antioch was a major city mentioned in the Bible. The Orthodox Church humbly claims to be the same Church of Christ from those ancient times, the Church in all of the fullness that Christ established.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call Fr. David or Fr. Stephan at 303-665-4013 or email one of them at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We invite you, also, to join us at one of our services or events listed.
What is MOPS?
MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers…
We believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying alongside one another.
WHAT TO EXPECT: A MOPS and MOMSNext meeting includes practical teaching through speakers, demonstrations and videos.
Plus, there's usually food... food you didn't make!
But more important, you'll get to have honest conversations with other moms who understand the joys and frustrations of motherhood.
WHO CAN COME? We've all been placed in this time and place in history, as the tribe of women who are raising the world. We know we mother better together, so all moms are welcome at MOPS. From pregnancy to when your kiddo is in grade school, our doors are open.
FOR THE KIDS: While you are enjoying your time with other moms, child care is provided!
The MOPPETS program is a preschool-style experience your kiddos will love.
We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world.
