We are a growing Orthodox Christian parish meeting in Pomona, California to worship God, spread the Good News, and support one another and our community in our lives in Christ.
We come from varied backgrounds – some Romanian, some converts and some from other Orthodox traditions. We welcome everyone to our parish, regardless of your background and pray that you will find a warm welcome when you join us.
We are also diverse in age, from newborn thru high school and every phase of adult life. School teachers, engineers, government workers, retired folk, homemakers, business people, college students — we come from all walks of life.
We love to worship together, to sing together, to learn and grow in Christ together, and to eat together! (We are famous for our coffee hour spread after Liturgy.) Come join us!
Our services are as follows:
Reader’s Vespers is celebrated on Saturday evening to help us prepare our hearts to receive the Holy Eucharist the following day, at the celebration of the Divine Liturgy. Reader’s Vespers begins at 5:30 PM.
On Sunday mornings, a Typika service or the Divine Liturgy is celebrated starting at 10:00 AM.
Please email us to receive our current weekly bulletin, with includes our service schedule: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our interim Parish Priest is Hieromonk Dionise Rodila, who is the Abbott of the Holy Resurrection Monastery in Temecula, CA. Our hierarch is His Eminence Archbishop Nathaniel, who resides at our Episcopate headquarters (affectionately known as the Vatra — Romanian for “hearth”) in Grass Lake, Michigan.
Our church is located in Room 24 of the First Christian Church complex in Pomona, little more than a block from I-10 and near its intersection with CA-57. Directions are available on our web site.
