  • Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Theodore’s Orthodox Mission, Toronto:

    Christ is in our midst!

    Although I was prevailed upon to serve the Liturgy every other Sunday at Sts. Raphael, Nicholas and Irene; we have determined that to be fair to all, I can only serve on one Sunday in the month… otherwise, that parish would have Liturgy every Sunday, while St. Theodore’s would have Liturgy only every other Sunday!

    We are aware of the fact that people lose track of which Sundays there will be service; therefore we have settled on one Sunday a month at Sts. Raphael, Nicholas and Irene. Ample notice will be given, i.e., it will be announced on 3 Sundays in the month as to which Sunday the Divine Liturgy will be served at St. Raphael, Nicholas and Irene. Everyone will also be contacted once a month by email.

    In July, Liturgy will be served at Sts. Raphael, Nicholas and Irene on Sunday, July 21., otherwise, all services as usual at St. Theodore’s.

    I hope everyone will concur that this is the best that we can do for both parishes.

    We are desperately short of True Orthodox priests in these End Times!

    Pray that Our Lord will give us the strength to continue to serve Him for as long as possible!

    Thank you for your understanding!

    Your unworthy priest,

    Fr. David+

  • SCHEDULE CHANGE! Fr. David has been asked to serve at Sts. Raphael, Nicholas and Irene on Sundays June 16 and 23 while their priest Fr. Demetrios is in Greece. Please make a note of this change on your calendar. For those who do not know where the church is, directions to the church may be found hereIf you are unable to attend Liturgy at Sts. Raphael, Nicholas and Irene, and will attend St. Nectarios instead, please don’t forget that the contents of the offering box at St. Theodore’s keeps Fr. David, who does not receive a stipend, on the road for hospital, nursing home and other visits. The current price of gas and parking (hospitals no longer extend free parking to the clergy) is very challenging!

    We thank St. Nectarios our mother church for hospitality, all our supplies, etc. Fr. David is serving both St. Theodore’s and Sts. Raphael, Nicholas and Irene and works almost full time in his “retirement” at age 82!

    Thank you!
