Thank you for visiting the St. John the Theologian website. We hope you find the answers for which you're looking.
Yes, there's plenty of room for you as well.
The Orthodox hold a rich heritage in their hands. Our services, the way in which we pray, and our worship are expressions of the ancient tradition handed down from the beginning of the Christian era. Our parish is a "living witness" of that tradition. As did the Apostle Phillip to Nathaniel, so too, we invite you, "Come and see" (John 1:46).
Orthodoxy is both ever old and ever new. We're part of the ancient Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch. The Book of Acts tells us that believers were first called “Christians” in Antioch (Acts 11:26).
We’re part of the Eastern Orthodox Church which includes churches in traditionally Orthodox countries like Russia, Greece, Romania, Serbia, and the Middle East (the eastern part of the Roman Empire). Today, Orthodox churches can be found in just about every country in the world.
We're a vibrant and growing community of people of all ages and backgrounds seeking to raise our families in the commandments of Christ within the ecclesiastical, sacramental, and spiritual life of the ancient Church.
Many of our parishioners made the journey to the Orthodox Church from other Christian traditions; some are cradle Orthodox; and some are from non-Christian backgrounds. No matter where you are “on your journey,” you’ll find a warm welcome.
We’re happy to have you visit.
