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.


On December 30th at 5pm we will have Vespers with a meal and Christmas Carol sing-along to follow.
We would like to get an idea of what everyone will be bringing, so if you plan to attend please let the parish know what you will bring, even if it just a broad category (using the parish email list or talking to Sharon Finlon). Also if you have a favorite carol, please let Sharon know so it can be prepared. We are looking forward to seeing everyone there.

- July 9, 2017 - On this day, St. Innocent of Moscow Russian Orthodox Church is truly blessed as our very own Michael (Gregory) Finlon was ordained a deacon at Holy Virgin Protection Cathedral in Des Plaines. Please follow the LINK to see pictures of this glorious ceremony. St. Innocent is truly blessed to add another great man to the clergy.
