Services and Clergy

All of our services are in contemporary English; our liturgical texts are translated from the original Greek texts of the Apostoliki Diaconia of the Church of Greece, printed in Athens 1964, and cross-referenced with the text of the Holy Synod of the Church of Greece, printed in Jerusalem 1892.

Holy Cross is a quasi-monastic community directly under the spiritual guidance and protection of Metropolitan Fotios of Demetrias, an Athonite of Esfigmenou monastery. Our Father Metropolitan Fotios is a member of the Holy Synod of the Church of the G.O.C. of Greece.


As in all monastic communities, the Church comes together and worships God in an Orthodox manner, through the day and throughout the week. The services are conducted by missioners.

Subdeacon Alan and Reader Alexander are members of Holy Cross and faithfully serve at many of the services.

Please refer to our Latest News (current activities) page for calendar of services, that vary from week to week.


We take this opportunity to acknowledge the many clergy who have served at and supported Holy Cross over the years, and those who continue to do so today. Glory to God!
