Royal Hours for Nativity is a quiet morning service full of special Psalms and hymns, as well as Old Testament, Epistle and Gospel Readings, relating to the Feast of the Nativity.

The Christmas Service begins late on Christmas Eve with festal Orthros, when we will finally sing "Christ is born!" The Divine Liturgy immediately follows, so that we welcome Christmas with the Eucharist. After the services, we will enjoy a midnight potluck feast! Visitors are welcome to this beautiful service - even young, sleepy children!
