All-merciful Virgin Theotokos, Mother of compassions and love for mankind, my most beloved hope and aspiration!
Our mission is to share God's love made known to us through the gift of His Church. We strive to be open to the divine life which Jesus wishes to give to us through the re-presentation of His once-for-all sacrifice. Through lives of charity, powered by heavenly liturgical worship imbued with God's mercy, we seek to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to all in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa.
Our worship, dates
back to the Apostle
James, first bishop
of Jerusalem. The
Liturgy offers deep
sense of peace, reverence and continuity. There are several forms of the Divine Liturgy.
The Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom is celebrated throughout most of the year. The Liturgy of Saint Basil the Great is celebrated ten times each year.
