Ascension - June 12 & 13

The Feast of the Ascension commemorates when, on the fortieth day after His Resurrection, Jesus led His disciples to the Mount of Olives, and after blessing them and asking them to wait for the fulfillment of the promise of the Holy Spirit, He ascended into heaven. It is celebrated each year on the fortieth day after Pascha (Easter). Since the date of Pascha changes each year, the Feast is always celebrated on a Thursday.

Join us as we take the body of Christ, the cloth placed on the altar table, and put it away for another year.

Vespers will be held on Wednesday June 12 at 6:00pm

Holy Liturgy will be held on Thursday June 13 at 10:00am - followed by Bible Class 


Pentecost - June 23

We are celebrating Pentecost on Sunday, June 23. In the Church’s annual liturgical cycle, Pentecost is “the last and great day” It is the celebration by the Church of the coming of the Holy Spirit as the end—the achievement and fulfillment—of the entire history of salvation. For the same reason, however, it is also the celebration of the beginning: it is the “birthday” of the Church as the presence among us of the Holy Spirit, of the new life in Christ, of grace, knowledge, adoption to God and holiness.

On Monday, June 24, we will celebrate the Birth of St. John the Baptizer with Holy Liturgy at 10:00am

Welcome Fr. Alexander Bitis

We welcome Fr. Alexander Bitis who will be serving his internship at St Dimitrie guided by Fr. George. He and his wife, Dr. Ioana Moldovan, live in West Branford where Fr Alexander is a history teacher. His wife, the daughter of  Fr Moldovan of Holy Transfiguration Romanian Orthodox Church in Farmington, CT, is an intern at Children's Hospital in Hartford.

Please introduce yourself to Fr Alexander and Dr Ioana

Congratulations and Thank you to Fr. Spyridon, Psa Sarah and Lazarus

In the beginning of the school year, we welcomed Fr. Dn. Spyridon Ickes, a student at St. Vladimir's Seminary, his wife Sarah and their one-year old son Lazarus. 

Similar to a student teacher, Master of Divinity students, in their senior year, are required to fulfill a Field Education component of their training in a parish setting. Throughout the year we watched Fr Dn. Spyridon take a greater role during the liturgy and presenting sermons. 

Thank you to Fr. Spyridon, Sarah and Lazarus for your service to St Dimitrie. May God Grant You Many Years.

Sunday School Graduation - May 12

Congratulations and Happy Graduation to all our Sunday School students!

In May, we celebrated a job well done–our Sunday School class of 2023-2024 is moving on up!

With over 30 children registered this school year, our classrooms were often bursting at the seams. As parents and teachers, we understand that many activities compete for the attention of our young people so we’d like to express gratitude to all the families for making Sunday School a priority so often this year.

It’s within these walls that children of the Orthodox faith grow in knowledge and spirit and build bonds of friendship and community that will last a lifetime. As this school year comes to a close, we celebrate four graduating students who grew up in Sunday School, right before our eyes: Matthew and Nicholas Modafferi, David Geer, and Gia Foley. These four are heading to high school in the fall where new adventures await them.

We ask the St. Dimitrie community to join us in our prayers for protection and wisdom and that as living icons of God, these flour students become a positive influence for others and that they reflect God’s love and light in a world that has many challenges for your people. As we say farewell until fall, our heartfelt thanks go to Fr. George, Psa. Marian, the Parish Council, Ladies Auxiliary, and the entire St. Dimitrie Community for their love and support.

I’d like to offer a special thank you to Mary Olteanu and Claudia Epure for their dedication to the Sunday School program, love of the Orthodox faith, and the joy and enthusiasm they bring to class each week.

Best wishes and prayers for a safe and relaxing summer for all!
