What to Expect

As you step into Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Brooklyn...

...you are about to embark on a deeply meaningful journey through the Greek Orthodox Divine Liturgy. The atmosphere here is a blend of tradition and community, creating a unique worship experience.

Gaze upon the intricate icons, the flickering candles, and the gentle waft of incense that fills the air, all coming together to envelop you in a sense of holiness and reverence. The Cathedral's architecture and decor reflect a deep connection to the Orthodox faith and the history it carries.

As you participate in the Divine Liturgy, you'll notice a rhythm of standing, sitting, and moments of reflection. Feel free to join in the singing and responses, even if you're new to the customs – the community values the shared experience of worship.

At the heart of the Divine Liturgy, you'll encounter the Eucharist, a central focus of Orthodox worship. While non-Orthodox visitors don't partake, you can approach the chalice for a blessing as it's offered. At the end of the service, a gift of blessed bread is given to each person present. 

Expect the Divine Liturgy at Saints Constantine and Helen to unfold at a deliberate pace, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of prayers, hymns, and scripture readings. As you engage in this ancient and sacred ritual, you'll connect with the spiritual heritage of the Cathedral and the broader Orthodox community, finding a profound sense of unity and devotion.
