Language

Most of our services are conducted in their original Greek, but with important elements also recited in English. Services conducted entirely or predominantly in English are listed on the above calendar.

The Greek used in our services is not the modern Greek spoken in Greece and Cyprus today, but rather the Greek of Late Antiquity; in other words, the language of the New Testament and the Septuagint, the language of the early liturgies, of the Ecumenical Councils, of the great Church Fathers of the East, and so on. As such, it is part of the common heritage of all Christians, regardless of ethnic background, and should be considered a point of inclusion rather than exclusion.
