Community

Find information and stay connected with the dynamic programs we offer for all ages.  Our community is a traditional and family-oriented Orthodox Christian church of about 400 families. It is a community that is historical and growing, with dedicated members who love Christ and His Church. Our congregation is comprised of life-long Orthodox Christians and people who chose Orthodoxy later on in life. 

 

If you are interested in discovering what the Orthodox Church has to offer, please look around and contact us with any questions you may have.

Matins – 8:45am

Liturgy – 10a.m.

We encourage everyone to join us every Sunday morning for worship, fellowship and community. We celebrate matins and the Divine Liturgy weekly (except during special events and feast days), with community socials immediately after in the Betty Reckas Community Center.
