Welcome to heisrisen.org, the web presence of Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church. We are a parish of the Diocese of New York and New Jersey of The Orthodox Church in America. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about us and about Orthodox Christianity—the dynamic, fullness of the Apostolic Faith—alive in the 21st Century.
Holy Resurrection Church was established in 1964. At present, our parish has nearly 180 adult members and approximately 70 children and teens. We are a growing church community worshiping God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—in the 2000-year old Orthodox Christian Tradition. Our educational efforts attempt to be both formational as well as informational. Our Sunday coffee hour and other social activities give us the opportunity to welcome all guests that the Holy Spirit sends to our doors, with kindness and hospitality.
As members of Holy Resurrection Church, we are encouraged to strive in our communal and personal lives to be illumined and transformed into the Image of Christ. As we take up our cross daily and follow Him, we attempt to bear His Image to each other and to all our neighbors.
Many aspects of Orthodox life, particularly our worship—celebrated exclusively in the English language—may seem strange and unfamiliar to you on your first visit. We trust, however, that over time, the beauty, sanctity and reverence—particularly of the Divine Liturgy (the primary Eucharistic service) celebrated on Sundays and Feast Days, as well as the Saturday evening Vigil Service, (a service of preparation for Sunday)—will bring you into a closer relationship with the Holy Trinity and the present membership of our faith community.
We invite you to “come and see,” and to share in our liturgical, educational, and social activities available to all people of all ages and backgrounds.
