Parish Mission Statement

We desire to express the Orthodox faith through the worship of the Holy Trinity in the Eucharist and in the Sacramental LIfe of the church. As an intentional Orthodox community, we place our hope in the Resurrection. We desire to bear one another's burdens in the knowledge that God will transform us through our present sufferings into His image and likeness. Therefore, having experienced God's love, we desire to intentionally manifest this love to others through acceptance, compassion, benevolence, and hospitality, for the life of the world.
