Orthodox Life Discussion Group

Orthodox Life Discussion Group is a weekly ministry that meets in the homes of our parishioners. We meet in Vallejo/Benicia, Fairfield and Napa on a rotating basis. Our topic is The Divine Liturgy and our discussion is guided by the book The Heavenly Banquet.

Participating in these discussions will profoundly enrich your understanding of the Divine Liturgy and deepen your worship experience on Sundays. Everyone is welcome to attend any of the meetings. Please contact Fr. Ninos with questions and if you’d like to host a gathering in your home.  Below are the dates and locations of our upcoming meetings:

Tuesday, August 6 in Benicia at 6:30pm

Tuesday, August 13 in Napa at 6:30pm
