Members and visitors, welcome to our parish website, a small expression of the otherworldly joy that comes from encountering God. “Christ himself is joy. He is a joy that transforms you into a different person. This is what our religion is” (St. Porphyrios +1991). Orthodoxy holds, in all humility, that the fullness of joy as God intends is found in our ancient tradition, which maintains an unbroken chain to Christ and His apostles.
Above all, joy is grounded in worshiping the living God, an encounter that brings us into union with our Creator, Who shares His very life with us – the essence of what it means to be human. Our worshiping community is English-oriented and highly diverse, consisting of Greek-Americans, converts, and several traditionally Orthodox ethnicities (including Romanian, Serbian, & Eritrean).
“Welcome one another, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God” (Rom. 15:7). While this website shares content about our parish and Orthodoxy as a way of life, our prayerful hope is that you will join us in person.
