Come Experience Christ's Ancient Orthodox Church…
The house of God, which is the Church of the living God,
the pillar and ground of the truth. – 1 Tim 3:15
Welcome to our St. Mary Romanian Orthodox Church Family!
It is with great joy in the Lord and thanksgiving to Him that I welcome you to our parish!
I pray God that you will find in our community a prayerful and loving home where you can grow in faith and worship.
St. Mary’s is a vibrant faith community of people who are living and growing in their faith together in accordance with the commandments of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Apostolic Tradition of the Holy Orthodox Christian Church. Although the Church is first and foremost a worshiping community, our parish is more than just a place where people come to worship the living God in liturgical services.
Following the commandment of our Lord Jesus Christ to love our neighbor (Mark 12:31), our parish makes a special effort to engage in various ministries and outreach, which provides our members with the opportunity to serve, and those who are served an opportunity to experience the love of Christ.
We are honored by your visit and invite you to come experience the Ancient Orthodox Christian Church and worship with us. Visiting an Orthodox Church, for many people, is a new and exciting experience. For those who are unfamiliar with the Orthodox Christian faith it may sometimes be difficult to understand what is happening, and we are sensitive to that.
If you have any questions during your visit, please feel free speak to our priest. We regularly have visitors, so do not be surprised if people introduce themselves and ask where you are from.
We look forward to meeting you at our Church.
On behalf of our Archbishop Nathaniel, my family, and all of us here at St. Mary’s, once again we welcome you to Jesus Christ’s Holy Orthodox Church!
Father Alin Munteanu, Parish Priest
In giving birth you preserved your virginity, / in falling asleep you did not forsake the world, O Theotokos. / You were translated to life, O Mother of Life, / and by your prayers, you deliver our souls from death.
Întru naştere Fecioria ai păzit, întru Adormire lumea nu ai părăsit, de Dumnezeu Născătoare; mutatu-te-ai la Viaţă, fiind Maica Vieţii şi cu rugăciunile tale, izbăveşti din moarte sufletele noastre.
