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.

The Cross of Christ: The Symbol of our Victory over Sin and Death, through our Faith in our Lord Jesus

“Understandably, the disciples were confused by the idea of the Cross, as people still are today, because they think rationalistically (proud reason!).  That God should suffer on the Cross, that He, in a lamentable, terrible state should be the artifice of final purification: this concept, very humiliating and degrading for worldly minds, was not in accord with the concept of God’s omnipotence that was held by ancient peoples.  Therefore, the Apostles’ preaching about the crucified Lord was received as foolishness by the Gentiles and as a scandal for the Jews.  St. Paul says to a world confused by the concept of the Cross: ‘We preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.’”  [I Cor.1:23-24]

A Spiritual Pearl from the Psalms of King David:
“I have cried out to Thee, O Lord, the whole day long; I have stretched out my hands unto Thee,” [Psalm 87(88):10]
