A Parish of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR) Western-rite Communities
“God is light; In him there is no darkness...”
[1 John 1:5]
St. Tikhon Orthodox Church is an English speaking parish of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR) Western-rite communities. As such, we are in full communion with the canonical Eastern Orthodox Churches throughout the world while preserving our Western liturgical and cultural heritage and patrimony.We are under the Omophorion of His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia and Ruling Bishop of the Western Rite congregations and monasteries.
We are a traditional church. No new theology... no new morality...no trendy worship. What you will find is the Faith as delivered once and for all time through the Apostles. The ancient Church for a modern world.
We seek to reach out to all who thirst for the unchanging Faith that was delivered once and for all time by Jesus Christ. We seek to grow in faith and spiritual maturity as genuine disciples of Christ and to live the Faith authentically in thought, word and deed.
In short... to be the Church
What We Do
We worship in the manner of the ancient, undivided Church. Our liturgy is that of St. Gregory the Great. We are Catholic; but not Roman Catholic. We are evangelical; but not Protestant, in that we seek to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all. We are Orthodox in that we proclaim the ancient and undiluted Faith and are part of Christ's Church as it was established since AD 33.
We are a Parish in the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR) Western-rite Communities. As such, we are a part of the canonical jurisdictions of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Our doors and our hearts are open to all who will come. All are welcome!
