Ministries - Greek Orthodox Chapel at Rose Hills
St. Nicholas Chapel at Rose Hills at gomf.org.
"Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and
believes in me will never die." (John 11:26 - NRSV)
It is out Orthodox faith, this same faith in Jesus Christ that teaches and strengthens us
to look confidently beyond the present life and all its uncertainties. For we know that
when death comes and inevitably it will come to each one Of us, we will be with the Lord.
"For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from
God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." (11 Corinthians 5:1 - NRSV)
It began with a dream and a vision years ago. A place where those who share the common
Orthodox faith, those who believe in Christ the Lord will also share a common place, a
cemetery, a place of rest for the body until the coming of the Lord. A place where families
can pay their respects to those who have past, say a prayer and reminisce in a beautiful
setting reminiscent of the village cemeteries of Greece. A place where memories of
families and friends will abound, and one will not be forgotten.
Nestled in the beautiful setting at the top of a hill, this Greek Orthodox Section includes
St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Chapel, open to all of the Greek Orthodox Faithful in Southern
Greek Orthodox Memorial Foundation of Southern California
