Special Announcements

Services will continue to be live-streamed so that the faithful at home may still join in prayer. 

If  you or any member of your household are sick, have a fever, or have been exposed to COVID-19 in the last 14 days, please follow the CDC Guidance for Isolation. 

COVID-19 Warning for Places of Worship: Even with adherence to physical distancing, convening in a congregational setting of multiple different households carries a relatively higher risk for widespread transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).  COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death.  All those who are 65 years old or older; have serious underlying medical conditions; or have a compromised immune system are encouraged to remain at home consistent with guidance provided by the California Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control.

Morning Prayer of the Optina Elders

O Lord, grant that I may meet all that this coming day brings to me with spiritual tranquility. Grant that I may fully surrender myself to your holy will.

At every hour of this day, direct and support me in all things. Whatsoever news may reach me in the course of the day, teach me to accept it with a calm soul and the firm conviction that all is subject to your holy will.

Direct my thoughts and feelings in all my words and actions. In all unexpected occurrences, do not let me forget that all is under your care.

Grant that I may deal straightforwardly and wisely with every member of my family, neither embarrassing nor saddening anyone.

O Lord, grant me the strength to endure the fatigue of the coming day and all the events that take place during it. Direct my will and teach me to pray, to believe, to hope, to be patient, to forgive, and to love. Amen.
