Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages…


 

 

To experience the scarcely observed beauty of

Christian Holy Tradition

as given to us by our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ,

truly, all must … “Come and See!”

WELCOME!  For first time visitors to our site, and to our Church, we welcome you!  This page contains some basic information about our parish and Orthodox worship for those who haven’t experienced it yet.

To start with, we want you to know at least this much:

You are welcome here. We are always honored to have visitors join us for prayer and worship.

You won’t be asked to do anything which would make you uncomfortable.

We don’t expect visitors to contribute anything to the financial support of our parish or our programs.

Our children worship with us. If you have young children, they are welcome here, too. If you need to step to the back of the Church with your child for any reason, you are not disturbing us. We expect Christian children to be raised in the Church and to do that, they have to be in the Church.

All of our facilities are handicap accessible. If you need any assistance at all, please let us know. We are here to be of service to you.

If you are an Orthodox Christian, and you have prepared yourself to receive Holy Communion according to your Spiritual Father’s direction, be sure to introduce yourself to Fr. Martin before the service. You are welcome to approach the chalice.

Here is a booklet that will examine how we worship and our customs.  Worship at St. Basil’s
