About Our Parish
St. Andrews is a vibrant, growing community of Orthodox Christians following the Antiochian Tradition. We welcome all visitors to join us in worship and for coffee hour afterwards!
Often, when people think of Orthodox Christians, they think "Greek Orthodox." However, the Greek Orthodox Church is just one of many Orthodox Jurisdictions in the greater Orthodox Church.
St. Andrews is a Parish of the "Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America," which has a different governing body than the "Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America" BUT both jurisdictions (as well as numerous others) are a part of the one, unified, Orthodox Church.
The Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church’s roots trace directly back to first century Antioch, the city in which the disciples of Jesus Christ were first called “Christians” (Acts 11:26). The Orthodox Church is the oldest and second largest Christian group in the world. We are called by God our creator to worship and follow Him, and to proclaim to the world His message of love, peace, and salvation.
