Christ is Risen!
On your first visit to St. Melany's, you have your choice of either grabbing a Liturgy Book and following along, or just taking it all!
For your first visit, we recommend the latter. You are free to take in all the sights, sounds and smells of the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.
You will hear the congregation many times say, "Lord Have Mercy". Feel free to join in as you feel comfortable as we call on the One True God; Father Son and Holy Spirit for Mercy!
The liturgy culminates with Holy Communion. All Catholics, and members of certain other churches with the permission their pastors, who are properly prepared may receive Holy Communion. If you have questions about this, please don't hesitate to ask.
If you are interested in learning more about our faith in Christ, please ask in person, email or call. There are often classes and Bible Studies that you may really enjoy.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
