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)
