"And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. If you have love for one another, then everyone will know that you are my disciples.” John 13:34-35
We are an Orthodox Christian community under the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople (His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew), the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America (His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios), and the Holy Metropolis of New Jersey (His Eminence Metropolitan Evangelos).
We are the 6th oldest Greek Orthodox community in the United States (established in 1901), and we are located in Elkins Park, a charming northern suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
OUR MISSION: "To proclaim the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, sanctify the faithful through worship and the Holy Sacraments, grow the church by inviting and receiving new members, live the Orthodox Christian Faith, and serve humanity through Christ-centered ministries."
OUR VISION: "To be a loving, caring, and welcoming Christian community, where all belong and grow in the Orthodox Christian Faith through worship, witness, fellowship and service to others."
We invite you to explore our website and feel free to contact us with any question you may have regarding our community or the Orthodox Christian faith in general.
