The Cox Family
Welcome! Our parish is a multi-ethnic community made up of Americans, Bulgarians, Greeks, Romanians, and Slavs. Some of us are converts from other religions or no religion at all and some of us have been Orthodox our whole life. All of us are here because we want to be. Orthodox Christianity is the faith and practice Jesus gave to the Apostles and it is alive today. We invite you to join us as we worship the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Our services are in English and visitors are always welcome.
UPDATE! We have purchased a building at 736 Sheppard Ave in Norfolk. We are very pleased and excited about our new home. Especially that we will have more room for new people! We are in the process of renovating the space and so are still in our old home for the moment. But we hope to be in our new home before Christmas. Check here for updates. We hope you will come and see!
