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.
This parish is part of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. We are pan-Orthodox. This means our membership includes many who were born into the Faith, as well as many converts.
The public is more than welcome to join us for services!
Is it acceptable for a married Christian couple to have sex without the goal of conceiving a child? Could a husband and wife “be together” in that way without falling into sin? In this post, we address the Orthodox Church’s view on contraception and birth control, particularly within Christian marriage.
Most Americans don’t know the Orthodox Church exists, let alone what it believes. Unfortunately, the same could be said of many cradle-Orthodox. They don’t really know what their Faith believes, or how it differs from everything else out there. Today, we examine seven key differences between Orthodoxy and her Western sister, Roman Catholicism.
Many visitors to Orthodox churches aren’t quite sure how to behave when they walk inside. This blog series explains the Church’s guidelines for etiquette, including dress, greetings, and pious behavior. We also explain some of the things the Orthodox do during worship. Our goal in doing this is to help newcomers not feel as lost when they come to visit!
Whether you’re wondering what in the world the Orthodox Church is, are looking to become Orthodox in the future, or have been Orthodox for quite some time, join us in learning about the True Christian Faith!
All are welcome to participate in this class.
