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.

Dear Family of the Parish of Holy Apostles

After the wonderful visit of the Kursk Root Icon, we continue under the protection of our all-holy lady the Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary in celebrating her Entry into the Holy Temple as a little child, continuing her preparation for the greatest office ever vouchsafed to a human being.  This day is also one day after the 12th anniversary of Priest Christopher's ordination to the priesthood.

Also this coming Sunday, our dear friend and steward of the wonderworking Hawaiian Iveron Icon of the Theotokos, Deacon Nektary Yangson will be ordained to the priesthood at Joy of All Who Sorrow cathedral in SanFrancisco.  God be praised!

As always, we should continue to daily pray for each and every one in our parish family to help us on our life's way to salvation.

With love in our Lord,
Fr. George

St Romanos the Melodist Society


The St. Romanos the Melodist Society produces and publishes English language music of the Russian Orthodox Church.


The St. Romanos website is the online extension of A Church Singer's Companion, a project started in 1998 with the blessing of Metropolitan (then Archbishop) Laurus. Inspired by the Russian Sputnik Psalomshchika, the Companion is envisioned to contain the music necessary for every service a parish choir might need to sing, while staying simple enough so that any parish choir can sing it.

The St. Romanos Society produces music in both printed and recorded formats, and conducts seminars and workshops on the proper performance of that music. The Society is a sodality of Holy Apostles Orthodox Church, Beltsville, Maryland.

To get started looking at music, proceed to the Church Singer's Companion and begin familiarizing yourself with the content. You'll find there are a few more challenging settings mixed in, marked “difficult” or “very difficult”. Audio or video examples accompany some of the music. In addition, the Introduction provides valuable advice about proper church singing and related topics.

Detailed Reviews and Endorsements by clergy and choral professionals are provided for your consideration.
