If you live in the area, or just want to visit St. Katherine, you are most welcome to worship with us. When you arrive, you will find a warm and welcoming community whose goal is to offer, “Philoxenia, southern hospitality at its best!“
Weekday evening services include Paraclesis (Wed. 5 pm, honoring the Mother of God), and Great Vespers (Sat. 6 pm). Agiasmo (Blessing of Waters), after Divine Liturgy on the first of the month. Please consult our online “Worship and Learning Calendar” for a current schedule of services.
For a complete list of worship times, please consult our Google calendar posted within this website.
St. Katherine’s members come from all over the world, especially the United States and Canada. We are a vibrant young parish and a diverse mix of people of every nationality and demographic, especially Hellenes and Philhellenes.
We are Americans (immigrants, 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation) of Greek, Albanian, Romanian, Russian, Serbian and almost every ethnic background…all of us proud Americans and grateful to be citizens of this great land.
Although many of us have finished raising families, a growing number of young families and converts who have determinedly decided to join us in embracing and living the Orthodox faith and way of life, have made St. Katherine their year round home.
As evidenced by our growing Adult and Youth Ministries (e.g. Sunday School, Acolyte, Holy Myrrh-bearers, Hellenic Dance groups, Greek School, GOYA, JOY, HOPE), and through other programs designed to encourage growth in Christ, through fellowship, worship, service and witness, we are a spiritually alive community.
Our people are committed members of the Orthodox Church, professionals, business leaders, public servants, Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, members of Leadership 100 and the Faith Endowment. Through our members, our ministries are truly global in their scope and reach.
Popular ministries include the Choir, Philoptochos (“Friends of the Poor”) and the Men’s Club. All of our ministries are growing.
- Adult Learning Opportunities: Embracing Orthodox Christianity, which meets after Paraclesis service on Wednesday evening, and Journey to Marriage, which is scheduled by appointment.
- Fellowship Opportunities: we offer are a host of fellowship opportunities, from Knitting Club to Bridge Club to Ballroom Dancing to Weight-Watchers to a Grief Support Ministry designed to help those who have lost loved ones.
St. Katherine exists to nurture relationships with God and man, both the vertical and the horizontal.
We believe that a Church where the Gospel of Jesus Christ is preached and heard is a Church where Christ can be encountered.
Our hope is that your visit to St. Katherine’s will result in your entering into a personal and communal relationship with God, thereby giving you strength for life’s journey. This journey is a journey, not so much of destination, as it is a journey of transformation, into the image and likeness of God (“Theosis”).
Come and see!
