Welcome Home!

Experience Christ's love.
Encounter the ancient Christian Faith.

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. 

In our parish, all services are fully in English. You can find us at 1501 8th Avenue, Beaver Falls, PA 15010.

The public is more than welcome to join us for services!
