And that’s a wrap! The 2019-2020 Sunday school year is complete!

The 3-4th grade has been meeting weekly on zoom since the middle of March. It was fun to connect and talk to each other. We even took one lesson outdoors and had three families on a neighborhood scavenger hunt, on what seemed to be the hottest day in April! Today was the end, and we played a puzzle game finding items the we see in church during the liturgy. We “found” all four items and hope to return them to church in person soon!

Thank you moms for helping make the zoom meetings run well! Hope to see you all soon!

Our Sunday Services:

Orthros at 9:15 am and Divine Liturgy at 10:15 am

Liturgy is in Greek and English

All are welcome! In 1908 we trace the first Greeks in Fayetteville, three brothers; Constantine (Charles), Arthur, and Thomas Havelos.

The first Greek business was the Busy Bee Cafe on Market Square on the corner of Green and Person Street. Thomas Havelos was one of its co-owners. Most of the Greeks that followed opened up cafes in the Hay Street area. Notably Steve and Nick Fasul came in 1920 soon operating Steve's Restaurant, next to the old post office. There were many other restaurants run by Greeks: The Central Cafe, owned by Charlie Kalevas and run by Gregory (Harry) Kalevas and Thomas Havelos; The New York Restaurant, run by Mr. James Kanos; the Rainbow Restaurant, run by Mr. Bill Pappas, Mr. John Moutos, Mr. Nick Phillos, and Danny Psillos; and the Royal Palm, run by Mr. Harry Daskal. For over twenty years Father George Stephanis of the Raleigh parish served our needs. The Greeks of Fayetteville wanted a place of their own. In 1954 the Parish Council and Board of Directors for the Hellenic Community Center, Inc., signed the contract to build the Hellenic Center on the northern edge of Oakridge Avenue. William Saunders was the architect for the 250' front by 358' deep building which included fellowship hall, classroom and chapel, and porch opening to a spacious lot and stage. Player Construction Company was the builder. In 1956 the Reverend Kallinikos Hatzilambrou was assigned to Fayetteville and began holding services in a classroom converted to chapel in the front room of the Hellenic Center. Sadly for our young parish, Father Hatzilambrou passed away. Reverend Papazisis, who had just retired from Jacksonville, Florida to his home in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, was asked to serve our parish until another priest could be found. Services during the holidays were held in the Hellenic Center in front of the stage. In the summer of 1961 Reverend Chrysostom Manuel, graduated, married, and was ordained. He began his service as a priest in Fayetteville in September 1961. On April 12, 1964, Bishop Aimilianos visited our parish for the groundbreaking ceremonies for our new church building. On June 17, 1984 our parish was consecrated by His Eminence Archbishop Iakovos. In August of 2000 Reverend Chrysostom Manuel retired and Reverend Dimitrios Moraitis began his service. The Reverend Dimitrios Moraitis served our parish until July of 2004. He was called to serve at St. Paraskevi Church in Greenlawn, New York. On September 1st, 2004, Reverend Konstantinos Kostaris assumed the spiritual leadership of our parish. In September of 2008 he went to live the resr of his life at a Monastery in Arizona. The Reverand Alexander M. Papagikos came to be with us and serve our parish on July 2009.

Arise O God and judge the earth; for You shall take all nations to Your inheritance. -Prokeimenon

On Great and Holy Saturday the Church contemplates the mystery of the Lord's descent into Hades, the place of the dead. Death, our ultimate enemy, is defeated from within. "He (Christ) gave Himself as a ransom to death in which we were held captive, sold under sin. Descending into Hades through the Cross ... He loosed the bonds of death" (Liturgy of St. Basil). https://www.goarch.org/holysaturday

When the glorious disciples were enlightened at the washing of their feet before the supper, the impious Judas was darkened by the disease of avarice, and to the lawless judges he betrayed You, the Righteous Judge. Behold, this man because of avarice hanged himself. Flee from the insatiable desire which dared such things against the Master! O Lord Who deals righteously with all, glory to You! - Troparion for Holy Thursday

On Thursday of Holy Week four events are commemorated: the washing of the disciples' feet, the institution of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper, the agony in the garden of Gethsemane, and the betrayal of Christ by Judas. https://www.goarch.org/holythursday

Behold, the Bridegroom cometh in the middle of the night, and blessed is that servant whom He shall find watching; and again unworthy is he whom He shall find heedless. Beware, therefore, O my soul, lest thou be overcome with sleep, lest thou be given up to death, and be shut out from the Kingdom. But rouse thyself and cry: Holy, Holy, Holy art Thou, O God, through the Mother of God, have mercy on us. -Troparion of the Bridegroom Service

Holy Monday Evening's Service of the Bridegroom (Matins for Holy Tuesday) calls to remembrance two parables, which are related to the Second Coming. The one is the parable of the Ten Virgins (Matthew 25:1-3); the other the parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30). https://www.goarch.org/bridegroom

Thy bridal chamber, O my Saviour, do I behold all adorned, and a garment I have not that I may enter therein. Illumine the garment of my soul, O Giver of Light, and save me. -Exapostelarion from the Service of the Bridegroom

Beginning on the evening of Palm Sunday and continuing through the evening of Holy Tuesday, the Orthodox Church observes a special service known as the Service of the Bridegroom. The name of the service is from the figure of the Bridegroom in the parable of the Ten Virgins found in Matthew 25:1-13. https://www.goarch.org/bridegroom

Palm Sunday

Timeline Photos 04/25/2021

"Because all their kings had mostly been unjust and covetous and subjected them to wars ... he said to them, 'Trust me, I am not like them. I am gentle and mild.' He demonstrated this by the manner of his entrance, not entering at the head of an army but simply riding on a donkey." - St. John Chrysostom, Homilies on the Gospel of John

On Palm Sunday, we celebrate the entry of our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ into Jerusalem. Palm Sunday is the commemoration of the Entrance of our Lord into Jerusalem following His glorious miracle of raising Lazarus from the dead. Having anticipated His arrival and having heard of the miracle, the people went out to meet the Lord and welcomed Him with displays of honor and shouts of praise. On this day, we receive and worship Christ in this same manner, acknowledging Him as our King and Lord.

The biblical story of Palm Sunday is recorded in all four of the Gospels (Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-10; Luke 19:28-38; and John 12:12-18). https://www.goarch.org/palmsunday

Saturday of Lazarus

By raising Lazarus from the dead before Your Passion, You confirmed the universal resurrection, O Christ God! Like the children with palms of victory, We cry out to You, O Vanquisher of Death; Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord! -Apolytikion of the Saturday of Lazarus

On the Saturday before Holy Week, the Orthodox Church commemorates a major feast of the year, the miracle of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ when he raised Lazarus from the dead after he had lain in the grave four days. Here, at the end of Great Lent and the forty days of fasting and penitence, the Church combines this celebration with that of Palm Sunday. In triumph and joy the Church bears witness to the power of Christ over death and exalts Him as King before entering the most solemn week of the year, one that leads the faithful in remembrance of His suffering and death and concludes with the great and glorious Feast of Pascha. https://www.goarch.org/lazarus
