"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7

Whether you are new to the area, a current member of our parish, or interested in learning more about the Orthodox Faith, we are happy that you took the time to visit with us. We are dedicated to providing information on all aspects of our community; organizational news, calendar events, Liturgical service schedule and more.  Feel free to browse through the pages of our parish.  We pray that you find your visit most enlightening and return often. 

The Orthodox Church is the first Christian Church, the Church founded by the Lord Jesus Christ and described in the pages of the New Testament. Her history can be traced in unbroken continuity all the way back to Christ and His Twelve Apostles.

The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman. It isn't non-denominational. It is PRE-DENOMINATIONAL. It has believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for the Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost more than 2,000 years ago.
