Otets Stefan is being released from the hospital today. He needs a few days of rehab work with a  physical therapist until he is steady enough on his feet to be at home. He chose to go to St. John Kronstadt Care Center, since he knows everyone there and will get the best of care.
STATUS:  7:00pm Wednesday June 15
Otets Stefan is getting great care at St. John Kronstadt.  He gets a lot of physical therapy, so that he can get around easier.
STATUS:  8:00pm Saturday June 18
From Matushka Tatiana:  It was Otets Stefan’s birthday today.  I visited him with our son Alyosha and our deacon, Otets Alexei, stopped by also.  We brought a huge birthday cake and the entire staff of the St. John Kronstadt Care Center sang Happy Birthday.  Otets Stefan is continuing with his physical therapy and recuperation.
STATUS:  11:00am Wednesday June 22
From Matushka Tatiana:  Nothing really new day to day, other than slowly recuperating.
STATUS:  11:00am Tuesday June 28
Any Update?  From Matushka Tatiana - not really.  I know it’s been a few days, but other than he’s continuing to get stronger and we are hoping he will be able to come home soon, there is nothing new.

Father Deacon Alexei Baranoff


Annunciation Feast Day

April 7, 2022



We are overcome with grief over the tragic events in Ukraine, for many of us the land of our forefathers, and for some the land where our relatives live today. We pray to the All-Merciful Lord, and His Most-Holy Mother for speedy secession of all hostilities and long-lasting peace.

Prayer to the Lord:
O Lord, Lover of mankind, King of the ages and Giver of good things: having destroyed the divisions of enmity and granted peace unto the human race, grant even now peace unto Thy servants, planting within them the fear of Thee and establishing them in love for one another. Quench all strife, and remove all dissensions and temptations; for Thou art our peace and to Thee do we offer up glory, to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto the ages of ages, Amen.
Владыко Человѣколюбче, Царю вѣковъ и Подателю благихъ, разрушившiй вражды средостѣнiя и мир подавшiй роду человѣческому, даруй и нынѣ миръ рабомъ Твоимъ, вкорени нихъ страхъ Твой и другъ къ другу любовь утверди: угаси всяку распрю, отыми вся разногласiя и соблазны. Яко Ты еси миръ нашъ и Тебе славу возсылаемъ, Отцу и Сыну и Святому Духу, нынѣ и присно и во вѣки вѣковъ. Аминь.

Prayer to the Mother of God:
O much sorrowing Mother of God, more highly exalted than all other of the daughters of the earth, according to thy purity and the multitude of thy suffering endured by thee on earth: Hearken to our sighs and soften the hearts of evil men, and protect us under the shelter of thy mercy. For we know no other refuge and ardent intercessor apart from thee, but as thou hast great boldness before the One Who was born of thee, help and save us by thy prayers, that without offense we may attain the Heavenly Kingdom where, with all the saints, we will sing the thrice-holy hymn to One God Almighty in the Trinity, always now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
О, многострадальная Мати Божiя, Превысшая всѣхъ дщерей земли, по чистотѣ Своей и по множеству страданiй, Тобою на земли перенесенныхъ, прiими многоболезненныя воздыханiя наша и сохрани насъ подъ кровомъ Твоея милости. Инаго бо прибѣжища теплаго предстательста развѣ Тебѣ не вѣмы, но яко дерзновенiе имущая къ Иже изъ Тебѣ рожденному, помози и спаси ны молитвами Своими, да непреткновенно достигнемъ Царствiя Небеснаго, идеже со всѣми святыми будемъ воспѣвати въ Троицѣ единому Богу нынѣ и присно и во вѣки вѣков. Аминь.

Our Western American Diocese has organized a collections program to benefit the refugees and the other innocents who are suffering from the present hostilities in Ukraine.  We urge our faithful to be zealous in their support of those who are suffering.  Their need is great, as is our opportunity to help them.


The Diocese will forward all donations to Metropolitan Onuphry of Kiev and All Ukraine and Metropolitan Arseny of the Svyatogorsky Monastery so that they may direct these funds to help those who are in the greatest need.  Please donate generously.   You can mail your donation to:

March 2, 2022:  Message from Andrei Roudenko, Parish COVID-19 Protection Plan Coordinator


Effective March 1, 2022, San Mateo County has revised its COVID-19 mask mandate.  Now, irrespective of vaccination status, wearing of masks indoors in many venues, including churches, is no longer required.


The County “strongly recommends” that masks be worn indoors.  However, at this point, this is an individual decision, not a mandate.


We encourage you to voluntarily take whatever health maintenance measures that you believe are prudent.


We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming services.  Please refer to our website for a complete list of services.
