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. Most people think of Greek Orthodox, Russian or other East European Orthodox Countries when they see the term “Orthodox”. We are a community of English-speaking Americans and 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, or if you are an Orthodox Christian and plan to receive Holy Communion, please 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

The Great Feast of Pentecost (June 4)


On this day, in the Holy Orthodox Church, the eighth Sunday of Pascha, we celebrate Holy Pentecost.

On this day—the fiftieth after Great and Holy Pascha—we commemorate the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the holy Disciples and Apostles in the form of tongues of fire. Numbering about 120, they who followed the Master gathered in Jerusalem in the upper room of a house to await the Lord’s promise to send the Holy Spirit. At about the third hour of the day, there came a sound from Heaven as of a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the house. Cloven tongues immediately appeared, like as of fire, and sat upon the head of each of them. The Apostles began to speak, not with the languages of their ancestors, but with other languages with which the Holy Spirit supplied them, as He inspired them. After the Apostle Peter explained what had happened, 3,000 people joined the Church on the day of its birth. The objectives of Pentecost are, namely, the coming of the Holy Spirit into the world, the fulfillment of the promise of Jesus Christ, and the completion of the undefiled hope of the Apostles.

By the intercessions of the Holy Apostles, O Christ our God, have mercy on us. Amen.










Saints of the Day

Thought for the Day

Blessed art Thou, O Christ our God, Who hast revealed the fishermen as most wise. Having sent upon them the Holy Spirit, and through them Thou hast fished the universe, O Lover of Mankind, Glory be to Thee! -- Apolytikion of Pentecost
