The Universal Exaltation of the
Precious and Life-Giving Cross
September 14


Troparion — Tone 1


O Lord, save Your people,
and bless Your inheritance.
Grant victories to the Orthodox Christians
over their adversaries.
And by virtue of Your Cross,
preserve Your habitation.


Kontakion — Tone 4


As You were voluntarily raised upon the cross for our sake,
grant mercy to those who are called by Your Name, O Christ God;
make all Orthodox Christians glad by Your power,
granting them victories over their adversaries,
by bestowing on them the Invincible trophy, Your weapon of Peace.

The local Church is the living Body of Christ (1Cor 12:27) that serves to live, uphold, and preach the Faith as delivered by Christ,
taught by the Apostles, and preserved in the Holy Scriptures and Tradition of the Holy Orthodox Church. We accomplish this mission by

•    partaking of the spiritual life and sacraments of the Church,
•    sharing in Christian fellowship as a eucharistic community,
•    providing for education of the Faith,
•    engaging in philanthropy,
•    being wise stewards of our time, talents, and properties and,
•    being Christ’s ambassadors (2Cor 5:20) to the world in manifesting His love, presence, and preaching.
