One thing have I desired of the Lord, which I will require; even that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the fair beauty of the Lord, and to visit His holy temple. (Psalm 26:4)
St. Xenia’s is a parish of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. Church Services are primarily conducted in the English language. Parish members and communicants come from many different communities in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
St. Xenia’s is a vibrant, growing parish with many families and children. This web site might give you some glimpse of our parish life, but we encourage your personal visit to our community.
We had our Annual Parish Harvest Festival on Sunday, October 31.
It began with a lesson for the older children on the Russian New Martyrs, who's glorification is celebrated on November 1, and a story and craft for the younger children.
The afternoon was filled with fun, games and folk dancing. We gathered again at 5:00 pm for a Molieben to St. John of Kronstadt.
All enjoyed a chili bar and hot dogs, before closing with songs around a campfire.

St. Xenia Parish, on rare and sundry occasions, makes use of space in the basement for meetings or small group gatherings. If for any reason, at any given time, this presents an obstacle or burden upon any senior, person with a disability, or other person for any reason, please do not hesitate to send and email to the parish warden. The parish warden will in turn reposition the meeting to the main floor, either to the nave or to the newly apportioned meeting room on the south side of the church, whichever works best for all concerned.
Thank you for your attention.
