Thank you for visiting the St. Michael's Orthodox Church website. We invite you to join us for one of our liturgical services – services that have been part of the worshipping tradition of Christianity since the early Church.
Our parish is part of the ancient Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch, where St. Luke in the Book of Acts tells us the believers were called “Christians” for the first time (Acts 11:26). We are part of the global Eastern Orthodox Church community, which includes national churches in traditionally Orthodox countries like Russia, Greece, Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria, Cyprus, and the Middle East, but also in Japan, China, India, the Philippines, throughout Europe including Germany, France, Poland, Finland, across the British Isles, throughout the African continent, and across North, Central and South America. There are over 250 million Eastern Orthodox Christians in the world today, and over 2 million in the United States.
Our parish is where we come to worship the living God. The mission of St. Michael's is to tend to the flock of our Lord Jesus Christ and to spread the Good News of Christ to those outside the flock. We seek to:
- Live a full and liturgical and sacramental life
- Proclaim the Orthodox Christian Faith to all people
- Provide effective charitable, care, and community programs
- Establish strong spiritual leadership and educational resources
Many of our congregants journeyed to the Orthodox Church from other Christian faith traditions and denominations and some non-Christian religious and spiritual traditions. Whether you are “on a journey” or just wanting to visit a local Orthodox parish you will be welcome at St. Michael's. We are always honored to have visitors join us for prayer and worship.
We belong to the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese, under His Grace the Right Reverend Thomas (Joseph), in the Diocese of Oakland, Charleston and the Mid-Atlantic.
Please join us for Sunday Divine Liturgy at 10:00 am!
