The Orthodox Church is very active. For us, Christianity is a whole way of life, not something we simply do on a Sunday morning. It influences everything that we are, as individuals, as families and as a community. As such there’s always plenty going on.

To get a sense of universal nature of our faith, our news articles report stories and communicate our beliefs, not just from our own parish but from the entire Orthodox World.

Please jump right in! There’s sure to be something that interests you…
