GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST! GLORY FOREVER! “Slava Isusu Christu” (SLA-VA EE-SUE-SUE KRI-STU) “Slava na Veeky” (SLA-VA NA VyEE-KEE)

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)
