"And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. If you have love for one another, then everyone will know that you are my disciples.” John 13:34-35

"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7

Welcome to our website!

We are an Orthodox Christian community under the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople (His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew), the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America (His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios), and the Holy Metropolis of New Jersey (His Eminence Metropolitan Evangelos).

We are the 6th oldest Greek Orthodox community in the United States (established in 1901), and we are located in  Elkins Park, a charming northern suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

OUR MISSION is to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, sanctify the faithful through worship and the Holy Sacraments, grow the church by inviting and receiving new members, live the Orthodox Christian Faith, and serve humanity through Christ-centered ministries.

OUR VISION is to be a loving, caring, and welcoming community,  the light of Jesus Christ to the whole world,  “a city set on a hill” (Matthew 5:14), where all belong and grow  in the Orthodox Christian Faith  through worship, witness, fellowship  and service to others.

We invite you to explore our website and feel free to contact us with any question you may have regarding our community or the Orthodox Christian faith in general.

If you are a new member of our parish, or are considering membership, these web pages will acquaint you with what our parish offers to those who give it support and sustenance. To those who already belong to the church, we hope they will provide you with the assurance that your sacrificial offerings are received with profound respect, and are utilized to maximum effectiveness.

This website is a work in progress. Thank you for your patience! Your comments and suggestions are welcomed as we strive to grow it and improve it for the glory of God.

Services Schedule

We meet for divine worship every Sunday morning 8:30-11AM, followed by a fellowship hour in our community center. All are ivited!
