Active Religious House


Active Religious House denotes a currently active chapel of an abbey, cloister, convent, friary, hermitage, monastery, priory, seminary, skete, or other institution that houses a religious community and which may or may not be open to lay faithful.


Occasionally, the worship space in such a community serves the dual role of a parish church; however, most often it exists to serve the resident religious community. For this reason, we  recommend consulting the entry 'Notes' to determine which Divine Services are open to public attendance. If the Notes are unclear, or if any doubt remains, please contact the religious community before visiting with the intention of participating in Divine Services.

Exaltation of the Cross

Save Your people, O Lord, and bless Your inheritance; * grant victory to Your Church over her enemies * and protect Your commonwealth by Your Cross. (Troparion - Tone 1)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Willingly lifted up on the Cross, O Christ God, * bestow Your compassions upon the new commonwealth that bears Your name. * By your power grant joy to Your Church, * granting her victory over her enemies. * May she have your Cross as the weapon of peace * and the invincible ensign of victory. (Kontakion - Tone 4)

The Church celebrates the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross on September 14th.

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

We truly love God and keep His commandments if we restrain ourselves from our pleasures. For he who still abandons himself to unlawful desires certainly does not love God, since he contradicts Him in his own intentions. . . Therefore, he loves God truly, whose mind is not conquered by consent to evil delight. For the more one takes pleasure in lower things, the more he is separated from heavenly love.

St. Gregory the Great
