Christ is Risen! Indeed, He is Risen! Khristos voskrese! Voistinu voskrese! Khrystos voskres! Voistynu voskres! Christos anesti! Alithos anesti!

All are welcome to worship with us! Here you will find orthodoxy of faith, purity of doctrine, beauty of worship, and a lasting commitment for holiness among people.

The Parish Mission: “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37-39)

We do our Faith by: “Go Therefore, and make disciples of all nations.” (Matthew 28:19)

Saints Cyril & Methodius parish is located in Cary, NC at the northwest corner of Tryon Road and Piney Plains Road. Please join us for Divine Liturgy on Sundays and Holy Days as well as stay for refreshments in the Parish Hall afterwards. All are Welcome to Attend Church Activities & Celebrations!
