One of the three branches of Christianity, the Orthodox Church is a fellowship of administratively independent local churches, united in faith, sacraments, and canonical discipline. Standing in direct continuity with the earliest Christian communities founded by the apostles of Jesus, the faith of the Orthodox Church is expressed in her ancient worship, which immerses participants in the reality of the biblical story.
The life of St. Elizabeth is one focused on the love of neighbor and merciful service to the poor, the downtrodden and the outcast of society. For St. Elizabeth, acts of mercy and the proclamation of the Gospel were inseparable.
The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. We hope that you will consider a vist to our parish.
Fr. Marc Boulos, Rector
Each week, Dr. Richard Benton, Fr. Marc Boulos and guests discuss the content of the Bible as literature.
