The orthodox church

The Orthodox Church is the original Christian Church, the Church founded by the Lord Jesus Christ and described in the pages of the New Testament. Her history can be traced in unbroken continuity all the way back to Christ and His Twelve Apostles. The Orthodox Church maintains that the Church is the living Body of Jesus Christ.

Welcome

We are very happy to welcome you to our website.

JOIN OUR PARISH FAMILY

Giving to His Church is a way to thank God for His grace and generosity. We are stewards of the Gospel and the stewards of our parish. We see our church, not as it is, but as it could be. We offer our treasure and ourselves sacrificially, so that, as members of the Body of Christ, we may reach our full potential in Him. 

We hope that you will join our Holy Taxiarhai and Saint Haralambos family in renewing the world around us through God’s loving grace.
