Parish Events
Teachings of the Church
What does our Holy Orthodox Church teach about the purpose of life? What does she teach about the soul and what happens when we die? What about things like anger, depression, anxiety and fear?  What does the Church teach about money, technology, art and entertainment; or about sexuality, gender, love and marriage? What does the Church teach about being a man, or being a woman or raising children? 

Join us for a weekly, in-person discussion group to learn and discuss the Church's profound and life-changing answers to these questions and many others
