The Orthodox Church is the One Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Yes, we are Christian! In fact, we share an unbroken history with the Faith of the first Christians, and we can trace our history back to the Apostles themselves.
Our particular parish, Saint John the Evangelist Orthodox Church, is what we call pan-Orthodox. This means our membership includes Orthodox who both converted or were born into the Faith. All services in our parish are fully in English.
You can find us at 1501 8th Avenue, Beaver Falls, PA 15010. All are welcome to join us for services, even if you are not Orthodox!
