THE ANCIENT CHURCH FOR THE MODERN WORLD
A WESTERN RITE PARISH OF THE RUSSIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH OUTSIDE RUSSIA
WELCOMING YOU HOME
In this modern age, many have sought the Church of the first century of Christendom. That Church still exists and it is waiting for you to discover it!
"We knew not whether we were in heaven or on earth. For on earth there is no such splendor or beauty, and we are at a loss how to describe it. We only know that God dwells there among men and their service is fairer than the ceremonies of other nations. For we cannot forget the beauty..."
Report from Prince Vladimir of Kiev's emissaries to the Prince upon witnessing the Divine Liturgy in the Hagia Sophia for the first time
