“Holy Scripture is the greatest gift which God has given to man...the word of God is like an instrument which punctures the hardness of our heart. It is like a charge of dynamite which blasts our passions to the left and to the right. It purges our heart and fills it with virtues...the Holy Scriptures provide us with spiritual experience...Where God’s voice is, there is God, hidden within the voice. The spiritual book is a mystery, a sacrament...the words and lines of Holy Scripture are the garments of Christ...we know the names of dozens of actors and celebrities by heart, backwards and forwards. The same thing with sports stars...Here’s a better idea, let’s do something else. When you go home tonight, open up [the Scriptures].”

Elder Aimilianos the Holy Monastery of Simonopetra on Mt. Athos


 
Welcome to Saint Andrew Orthodox Church

 

Thank you for visiting the St. Andrew Orthodox Church website. We hope you find our site informative and edifying. We also invite you to join us for one of our liturgical services – services that have been part of the worshipping tradition of apostolic Christianity since the era of the “early Christian Church."

Our parish is part of the ancient Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch where St. Luke in the Book of Acts tells us the believers were mockingly called “Christians” for the first time (Acts 11:26). We are part of the global Eastern Orthodox Church community which includes national churches in traditionally Orthodox countries like Russia, Greece, Romania, Serbia, Cyprus, and the Middle East, but also in Japan, China, India, the Philippines, throughout Europe including Germany, France, Poland, Finland, across the British Isles, throughout the African continent including Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, South Africa, and across North, Central and South America.  There are over 250 million Eastern Orthodox Christians in the world today and over 1 million in the United States. 

Our parish is more than just a place where people come to worship the living God (although it is first and foremost that!). St. Andrew is a vibrant faith community of people of all ages and backgrounds who are working out their faith together and raising their families in accordance with the commandments of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the sacred norms for spiritual life of the ancient Holy Eastern Orthodox Church.

Many of our congregants journeyed to the Orthodox Church from other Christian faith traditions and denominations and some non-Christian religious and spiritual traditions. Whether you are “on a journey” or just wanting to visit a local Orthodox parish you will be welcome at St. Andrew. We are always honored to have visitors join us for prayer and worship.
