The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much....
James 5:16

In the tradtition of monastic service, St. Tikhon's  offers prayers for both the living and those that have fallen asleep.  While we greatly appreciate any financial donation you would like to offer, there is no specific charge for this important service to the Church.

Prayer for the Living 

A moleben is an intercessory prayer service for a specific intention (healing, wisdom, reconciliation, employment, safety, general wellbeing, etc.).  Use the form below to submit names..

Prayer for the Departed

Prayer for the souls of the departed is an essential element of Orthodox Church tradition and service. 

The pannikhida is the traditional memorial service for the souls of departed loved ones.  It may be offered  at any time after physical death but is  most often offered at the time of passing as well as the 3rd, 9th, and 40th days after passing and  the  yearly anniversary of the date.   

Please Note:  due to a variety of factors moleben and pannikhida services are only offered once a week.  We cannot offer immediate  (i.e. emergency) prayer services as we did in the past.

Divine Liturgy Commemorations

Commemoration of the living and the departed at Divine Liturgy is an abundant source of grace for souls in need.  The names of Orthodox Christians submitted to us are mentioned in the  Service of Proskomedia (Prothesis) when the gifts of bread and wine are prepared. Please specify if the person is Orthodox or Non-Orthodox.  Also please note that during Lent and Holy week we are not able to schedule weekday Liturgy commemorations.

Names are gathered through the week added to our commemoration list twice a week and are retained and offered, normally, for two weeks.  Because of the large number of people reached by the monastery we request that names be submitted  no more than twice a month by each individual.   Names are commemorated at all Divine Liturgies Sunday and throughout the week.
