Communal Services

All guests of Second Heaven are encouraged to attend all scheduled Center services. Non-Orthodox visitors are welcome to participate in the services and prayers except for Communion during the Holy Liturgy.

If you long for further depth or are longing for specific spiritual guidance on an individual basis let us know and you will be given a block of time for this purpose where you can meet with one of our priests or consecrated servants.

Cell phones must be turned off during the church services and meals in the dining hall.

Holy Communion

Holy Communion is truly the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and just as it sanctifies and becomes for those prepared provision for eternal life, it may very well become “fire burning the unworthy” for those who are not. We therefore ask of all Orthodox Christians to prepare with confession and to have permission from their Spiritual Father before receiving Holy Communion, and also to prepare with the required fast as established by the Holy Fathers of the Church.
