The Lord with Apostles
Our website is a testimony about the Gospel of our Lord through the ecclesiastical life of our community. Here you will find a concise history of our parish, information about important events in its life, a short summary of the history of Orthodoxy in America, as well as articles about various aspects of Orthodoxy.
In American Orthodoxy, lay people have always played an important role, complementing the service of the Church hierarchy, and our parish is not an exception. We know that the Orthodox Church lives by its communion with its Lord and Chief Jesus Christ, who has said unto His disciples: “I am the vine and ye are the branches... As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me” (John 15:4-5). And so we, who partake of Our Lord, constitute together one body, according to the apostle's words, “for the body is not one member, but many” (1 Cor. 12:14). Thus our web page narrates not only the events of the parish's life as such, but also tells what is most important in the everyday life of some of our parishioner and introduces visitors to their creative works.
