COVID-19 Update
November 2020
 
Taking nothing for granted, and with thanks to God, we remain responsibly vigilant in doing what we can to stay as virus-free as possible. We continue to ask those who wish to attend Divine Liturgy on Sunday morning to reserve a seat by calling the Church Office on the Thursday or Friday prior. We regret we are unable to accommodate drop-ins on Sunday morning.
 
All parishioners over the age of 2 are asked to wear a mask covering nose and mouth. Those who cannot wear a mask are asked to participate in services via the livestream link available below. In church, signs and markings remind us of our distancing, temperatures are taken at the door, and pew maps indicate assigned seating. Please be kind and patient if your perspective is less conservative than our practices are right now.

At this time, Saturday night Great Vespers and weekday Liturgies are 'open' services (no reservation required) but the routines described above remain the same --- temperature check, distancing, masks, no kissing anything, as little touching anything as possible. See calendar for list of services.
 
May God grant us all strength, health and courage!
 
Fr. John Nosal
 
Note: Please make an appointment with Fr. John if you would like to receive communion or visit the church outside of the scheduled services, as the building is locked when not in use for services. Thank you for your understanding!

ALL ARE WELCOME IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD, GOD, AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

St. Michael's is a parish of the Orthodox Church, the original and oldest Christian Church. We belong to the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, part of the Church established by the Apostles Peter and Paul in Antioch, where the disciples were first called Christians (Acts 11:26). We share a direct and unbroken connection to this early center of Christianity, continuing the same faith and worship of the earliest Christians. Our bishops and clergy serve in direct succession to the first-century Apostles and their ministry. Father John Nosal is our priest and pastor. St. Michael's Orthodox Church was founded in 1955, but its roots in Greensburg date back to 1918. 

We invite you to come and see our worship and to learn about our faith! Divine Liturgy is every Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.

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.  The mission is to be accomplished by:

  • Living a full and liturgical and sacramental life
  • Proclaiming the Orthodox Christian Faith to all people
  • Providing effective charitable and social programs
  • Establishing strong spiritual leadership and educational resources


A Thanksgiving Blessing, 2020

 

We were pleased to support the Latrobe Salvation Army's Thanksgiving Food Box program, helping to provide Thanksgiving dinner for 50 local families in need. Pictured above: members of St. Michael's Orthodox Church and the Pitt-Greensburg Basketball Alumni Association, teaming up to help!
