.....But no matter what, whether 1000 or the 2 or 3 gather to pray the services, one inescapable fact remains: the tomb cannot hold Him, death is destroyed, and He is Risen! Rejoice, and again I say, rejoice!

Even before the founding of St Christina of Tyre Orthodox Church, Orthodox Christians in the Tri-City area have provided monthly meals to the adult and children residents of the Sunrise Village Homeless Shelter in Fremont, CA. Not to be deterred by anything, even though the current situation will not allow us to cook and serve the meal, we are blessed that folks pitched in to purchase, gather and deliver the food for this month’s lunch. 
Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory forever!
