Welcome to our Christian Orthodox Mission website



We invite you to look around and get a feel for our church. If you're not currently  
member of our church - we'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to one  of  our weekly services.  And of course, feel free to reach out and call our Priest Father David.    

Although most people think of Greek Orthodox or Russian Orthodox etc. when they see    the term “

Orthodox,” we are a community of English-speaking Americans an       our services are in English. Our Archdiocese is originally from Antioch, which can trace     its roots back to the same Antioch mentioned in the book of Acts where believers were     first called “Christians.”  The Antiochian Orthodox branch of Orthodoxy   was brought to America by immigrants starting more than 100 years ago. Now many parishes in North America are like ours, English-speaking Americans from various religious, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. We invite you to visit our small but growing community. Be sure to check   our calendar for service times. If you have any questions, please feel free to email   Fr David directly or call him at (425) 737-6123.

We hope you and your family will have a warm and spirit-filled experience with us as we worship and fellowship together at our services.

Many blessings to you,

Fr. David Sommer

Nativity Fast
(November 15 - December 24)

The Nativity Fast is divided into two periods. The first period is November 15 through December 19 when the traditional fasting discipline (no meat, poultry, eggs, dairy, fish, wine and oil) is observed with katalysis for wine and oil on Tuesday and Thursday, and for fish, wine and oil on Saturday and Sunday. The second period is December 20 through 24 when the traditional fasting discipline (no meat, poultry, eggs, dairy, fish, wine and oil) is observed Monday through Friday, but with katalysis for wine and oil on Saturday and Sunday. [Katalysis is Greek, meaning “relaxation”.]
