"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7
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 beautiful Elkins Park, a historic northern suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
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 current website was made public on November 15, 2013, and it is still 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.
We meet for worship every Sunday morning 8:45-11:30 AM followed by a fellowship coffee hour in our community center.
