The Lenten spring has come – the light of repentance! O brothers, let us cleanse ourselves from all evil, crying out to the Giver of Light: Glory to Thee, O Lover of man.
Let us begin the fast with joy! Let us prepare ourselves for spiritual effort! Let us purify our souls and cleanse our flesh. Let us abstain from passion as we abstain from food, Let us rejoice in the spirit and persevere with love, That we may all see the Holy Passion of Christ, Our God And rejoice in spirit at the Holy Pascha!
Holy Apostles Mission Station offers the regular services of the Orthodox Church in the the South Building of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, located at 8871 School Street, in Chilliwack.
Our regular services include:

- Sometimes there may be mid-week services offered, such as Compline, Daily Vespers, or Akathists. Email Fr. Matthew for details: email@example.com.
Please feel free to come and join us! All are welcome any time. The Divine Liturgy is the main Eucharistic service of the Orthodox Church. Orthodox Christians who have prepared themselves through regular prayer, fasting, and repentance, are invited to partake of the Body and Blood of Christ through Holy Communion.
It is our goal to one day build a beautiful Orthodox Church in Chilliwack for the glory and worship of God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – according to the Orthodox manner. Traditionally, Orthodox Churches are constructed as expressions of true theology and prayer.
We do not know yet exactly where or when this dream will come to fruition, but we humbly ask God to bless this effort to lift high the Holy Cross and give glory to Jesus Christ in the Chilliwack area of the Fraser Valley.
