About Orthodoxy

Welcome Visitors!

 May God bless you and direct your steps in discovering the Ancient Christian Church. We look forward to seeing you in our midst soon! The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman. It isn't non-denominational - it is pre-denominational. It has believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for the Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost 2000 years ago. COME AND SEE!

The Meeting of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the Temple

TROPARION — Hail, Virgin Theotokos, full of grace! From you shone the Sun of Righteousness, Christ our God, enlightening those who were in darkness! Rejoice, O righteous Elder; you received in your arms the Redeemer of our souls, Who grants us the Resurrection. KONTAKION — By Your birth, You sanctified the Virgin’s womb, and You blessed Simeon’s hands as was meet, O Christ God; by anticipation You have saved us even now. Grant peace to Your faithful people, and strengthen the Hierarchs You have loved, O only Lover of mankind.


- commemorated on February 2

"Truly, not a single earthly pleasure can satisfy our heart. We are strangers on earth, pilgrims and travelers; our home and fatherland are there in heaven, in the heavenly kingdom; and there does not exist on earth things that could perfectly satisfy our desires."
