Welcome to St. Innocent of Moscow

An icon of St. Innocent of Moscow

From the first century A.D. up to today, the Orthodox faith is given inviolate and lived according to the ancient canons of the early Church. Our parish, whose patron is St. Innocent of Moscow, is part of this historic continuity. The primary mission of St. Innocent's is to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and services of the Russian Orthodox Church, to the people of America in the English language. We welcome you to our church community.
