The purpose of the Orthodox Choir is to facilitate prayer during the Holy and Divine services of the Church. We exist to join in singing with the heavenly choirs of angels and saints to help those in attendance to pray and prepare to receive Holy Communion. We meet for practice every Sunday before Divine Liturgy at 8:45 a.m., with extra practices scheduled throughout each month as schedules allow. If you wish to be a part of the choir please contact Amanda Hamm (choir director). It is required that you ask the blessing of Father Ambrose to participate in the choir and attend practices on a regular basis.
The brotherhood of readers at Holy Apostles is dedicated to ensure that services are conducted properly to provide a prayerful setting within the church. The ultimate aims of our readers are to recite in a manner that benefits others in their spiritual life in Christ, to aid those in prayer, to chant in a way in which words are clear and understood, to maintain solemnity, and to do anything we can for the betterment of the Holy Church and its people. Holy Apostles Church has been blessed with knowledgeable and experienced readers since its founding. While we have a wonderful abundance of readers at the parish, we are always looking to teach others, especially the young, the beautiful and rich tradition of reading in the Holy Orthodox Church. Please see Reader John Sames if you are interested in joining.
Our prosphora bakers support parish life by providing all of the loaves necessary to serve all liturgy and litya services. No experience in baking is necessary to serve the church as a prosphora baker, and we welcome volunteers at any point during the year. Training and recipes are provided for any parish member who would like to join our rotation! Interested parties should contact Father Ambrose for further information.
