We accept the authority of the Ecumenical Councils as professed universally by the Orthodox Church throughout the ages. We share with all Christians the belief that Jesus is the Son of God and Redeemer of humanity. We are united with others through the gift of Holy Baptism and celebrate the holy mysteries. Our jurisdiction teaches the holy Orthodox faith with a loving regard for all humanity, and based on intelligent modern positions on social issues. We welcome you, without regard to race, color, gender, sexual orientation, nationality or socioeconomic status. If you are exploring your faith, have not been part of a church before, or are uncertain about returning to church, please feel welcome to contact us.
Our clergy are also available, with sufficient notice, for more individual forms of pastoral care and ministry, including the general areas noted below. Please contact us by email if you are interested in conferences or retreat presentations concerning The Jesus Prayer, the spiritual and liturgical theology of the OCCA, and the Orthodox-Catholic Christian faith in general
