Welcome to our Christian Orthodox Mission website
Although most people think of Greek Orthodox or Russian Orthodox etc. when they see the term “Eastern 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
REMEMBER ME, O LORD, WHEN THOU COMEST INTO THY KINGDOM!
O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, meddling, lust of power and idle talk. But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience, and love to Thy servant. Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own sins and not to judge my brother, for Thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen.
(The Prayer of St. Ephrem the Syrian)
