The Orthodox Church In America is part of the world wide communion of canonical Eastern Orthodox Christian churches that hold the Tradition given by Christ to the Apostles. Sister churches include the Russian Orthodox Church, the Greek Orthodox Church, the Antiochian Orthodox Church, the Romainian Orthodox Church and many others.

Saint Paul’s is a parish with a membership of life long Orthodox Christians and converts to the Orthodox faith. Although most of our members were born in America some were born in the Orthodox lands of eastern Europe. English is the language used in all of the services.

More Information >

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Daily Readings >

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
