Glimpses of Parish Life at Holy Apostles
Welcome to Holy Apostles Orthodox Church

 

Holy Apostles Orthodox Church is a parish of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR), founded with the purpose of bringing the Gospel and Divine Services of the Russian Orthodox Church to the people of America in the English language. We invite you to come to any of the Divine Services or events at our mission church. In 2009 we were gifted a beautiful, historic chapel and two-acre campus by the Christian Brothers. Our vision is to establish the parish in its new home, from where the parish can continue to thrive and grow as a living icon of Orthodox missions in America.

Orthodox Christianity: Founded 33 AD
 
Two thousand years ago, after receiving the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, the apostles of Christ went out from their native Israel to bring the Christian Faith to all the far reaches of the world. The ancient Christian Faith, founded so long ago, remains unchanged today and is found in the Orthodox Church.
 
Holy Apostles Orthodox Church was founded with the purpose of bringing the Gospel and Divine Services of the Russian Orthodox Church to the people of America in the English language. We invite you to come to any of the Divine Services or events at our mission church.
Come and see...

We have a flyer available for you to hand out or post on bulletin boards, regarding our mission parish.  One is available here, in PDF format.  Please invite a friend to come visit our church.  We want to fill our church!
