On most days we have the custom of sitting together silently as part of the morning and afternoon services to pray the Jesus Prayer. We pray the Prayer for about 20 minutes at each specified service. Guests and visitors are welcome to join us, though we ask that if you arrive during the period of silent prayer that you go as quietly as you can to a seat, waiting until after the resumption of the liturgical service to venerate icons, light candles and so forth.

Within the Temple , O Temple of Life, you found Him whom the universe cannot contain, silencing the teachers by the word of God which is above the wisdom of the wise. O all-pure Mother of God, cease not seeking your children who are lost; that we may treasure Christ in our hearts, and find eternally our Father's House.
