Please be advised that after serious consideration regarding the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and concern for our parishioners, Sts. Constantine and Helen Church in Cambridge is cancelling all Liturgical, educational and social services until further notice. (Fr. Vassilios & the parish chanter will celebrate the Eurcharist at the Church, offering prayers for all. However, the Church doors will remain closed to the public.  If you would like a candle or more lit on your behalf during church services, you may send names and a donation made to Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church at 14 Magazine Street, Cambridge MA 02139. Father will commemorate the names during the Liturgy).

A letter to the parishioners:

Dear members of our parish,
 
"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the middle of them", Christ says in the Gospel of St. Matthew (18:20). Although our Churches will remain closed, until further notice from the Metropolis, two or three of us (the priest & the chanters) will continue to celebrate the Liturgy offering prayers for the faithful and for the whole world. If you (or a parishioner you know) needs communion at home) please let me know. May God keep you healthy and strong.
 
On another note,our spiritual life can be cultivated at home as well. The Liturgy can be read at home according to the following guidelines:
1. All [reader's] services are to begin with the exclamation: "Through the prayers of our holy fathers, O Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us. Amen.
2. All the priest's prayers and exclamations are omitted.
3. In place of the Supplications, "Lord, have mercy" is said twelve times;
4. The Gospel is read in an ordinary voice.
(Note: Every Orthodox Christian may read the Gospel privately, according to the ecclesiastical lectionary found in church calendars).
5. All other hymns, psalms and prayers are read or sung as when a priest serves.
 
The Liturgy can also be watched online: https://www.goarch.org/-/live-broadcasts-parishes
 
or http://www.tv4e.gr/livestreaming.php (Greek Orthodox religious channel in Greece).
 
Finally, SUNDAY SCHOOL continues at Home! Every Wednesday, I will e-mail to our students two Children's Worship Bulletins prepared especially for our kids (3-6, & 7-12 years old). On Sundays, the biblical lesson will also be e-mailed to you.
 
If you need anything please do not hesitate to call me, text me or vist me at Church (by appointment).
 
God bless you all.
 
With agape in Christ,
Fr. Vassilios

Through this web site, we are pleased to be able to introduce you to that same worship and fellowship as it is expressed in the life of our Parish. If you are a new member of our parish, or are considering membership, these web pages will acquaint you with what our parish offers to those who give it support and sustenance; to those who already belong to the church, we hope they will provide you with the assurance that your sacrificial offerings are received with profound respect, and are utilized to maximum effectiveness. They will, in any case, enable you to make the informed decisions that are necessary for a meaningful relationship with your church!
