In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Welcome!

Our site features articles in Russian and English on the Holy Orthodox Faith along with audio and video presentations, chronicling the life of our parish - the only church community in the United States founded in 1949 by St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco. All of the original articles and most videos on this site are property of our parish and may be freely used to the glory of God with permission.

Pastoral word


          The Feast of the Meeting of the Lord is one of those holidays that we for the most part allow to pass by with little thought or reflection, without delving into what takes place on that great day.

          On the Nativity, Christ comes down from the Heavens and is born on earth, for our salvation.  At the Baptism of the Lord, Christ comes to sanctify water, and through it, the entire world.
