About Us

We are a Eucharistic Community within the Diocese of Sourozh, Moscow Patriarchate. The Diocese in this country was founded by Metropolitan Anthony (Bloom) of blessed memory. The diocese is headed by Archbishop Elisey of Sourozh.

We are a multi-ethnic community and Orthodox Christians from various nationalities worship with us. The services are in Church Slavonic (with some English) and may be attended by anyone who is interested, although only Orthodox Christians may receive Holy Communion at the Divine Liturgy.
