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.

Our Covid Restriction Policy

We have a small worship space with very limited accomodation.  Thus, if you have asked to come, and if the number for a given service is already full, you will not be permitted to attend.  This is a matter of great regret.  We possess a welcoming spirit and desire.  But, per our Bishop, we must follow local government rules.  This is our witness to our law-abiding nature as Christians.  We must protect our on-going worship life from intervention.  And we must protect our people from the potential for infection.  Please pray with us, and for the soon cessation of these plague-caused necessities.  If you may not attend services inside, you may follow the service on our live-streaming of them on our facebook page in your car.  If you have confessed and prepared, and this has been acknowledged by the clergy, when it is time for distribution of Holy Communion, you will be alerted and allowed in, observing social distancing.
