Message from Father Steve

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
     It is a blessing to have you in our community. We at Saint Nektarios are striving to be a Christ-centered community, living our lives and worshipping in a way pleasing to our Lord. So it is truly in His love and joy that I welcome you. I thank Him for your presence and for the opportunity to serve you. It is my sincere hope that you feel welcomed to worship with us as often as you like and that you will consider joining our Saint Nektarios family. You will be an asset to all of us as we strive to know and love our Lord and each other more perfectly through fellowship and prayer. Loving God and our neighbor is not only our dream and our vision, but it is our Lord’s commandment. Won’t you join us? We can all grow in this vision together.

May our Lord continue to bless you and your loved ones now and always.

In His Love and Service,
+Father Steve Dalber
