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.
Architect Andrew Gould delivered a beautiful watercolor of his concept for our New Parish Hall, just in time for us to display at our Capital Fundraising Launch Event June 10. See more of Andrew's architectural drawings for the new parish hall, and watch our two-part video of his talk with the parish in October 2017, where he discusses his vision for our new campus, through designs integrated with the style of our historic Chapel.

Sunday School Curriculum
Dear Parishioners and Friends,
While we hoped to serve tomorrow's Sunday morning service outdoors at the chapel property, unfortunately, because of vacationing and sudden cancellations, we will serve at the office park this weekend. The weather retains its wonderful prediction, however, so we hope that, even with restricted indoor attendance, folks will still be able to attend out of doors either in their cars or around the office park grounds using their i-phones to attend the live streamed service.
Please be alert to the opportunity for mutual service in our resumption of as near-as-normal parish agape meal after our Sunday Liturgy. Sign up will be on line instead of the physical signup sheet. The pandemic-related adjustments include meal content being served individually and parents serving their children. A gate keeper of the meal service is appointed to handle this.
We anticipate the beginning of Sunday School on the Sunday the 27th with part of our classes conducted in the open air. God grant that this possibility remain open for us.
God-willing, we will continue to live-stream the Divine Services from our parish Facebook page:
9/14 - Monday 7:00 PM Parish Council Meeting
9/17 - Thursday 7-9 PM Choir Rehearsal
9/19 – Saturday 5:00 PM Evening Vigil
9/20 - Sunday 6:30 PM Evening Vigil
9/24 - Thursday 7-9 PM Choir Rehearsal
9/26 – Saturday 5:00 PM Evening Vigil

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.
