Saint Paul's Greek Orthodox Church

Please join us for Morning Prayer at 9am and Liturgy at 10am tomorrow, July 20th, as we celebrate the memory of Elijah, the Old Testament prophet, who lived in the 9th century BC and called the ancient people of Israel away from their idolatry and back to the worship of the one, true and living God; and St. Maria of Paris (1891-1945), who was martyred in the Ravensbruck concentration camp for hiding Jews from the Nazis during WWII.

Saints of God of God, pray for us!
