Welcome Visitors

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Glory Forever!

 Welcome to the website of St. Stephen Orthodox Cathedral. We are a multi-ethnic community, welcoming Orthodox Christians from all backgrounds as well as inquirers who want to learn more about Ancient Christian Faith. English is the main language of our parish and it is our hope that many of those who visit and pray with us will be able to become part of the life of the original Christian Church through the Apostolic tradition that has been preserved and is continued to be practiced in the Eastern Orthodox Church.

 We hope that this website will help you learn more about the life of our community. Please check our calendar for the schedule of services and our Facebook page for current news.

 Because of the significant presence of Russian-speaking immigrants in our area we also have services in Slavonic every Sunday morning and on feast days.

Please check our Facebook page for the latest news from St. Stephen's Cathedral.

Remembering the Shut-Ins and the Hospitalized

St. Stephen's is a caring community of Orthodox Christians.  When one of our members is hospitalized or unable to attend services because of health or disability, we are not a whole community.  But for parishioners to reach out to their fellow parishioners, they need to know who those parishioners are.  Please make Fr. Victor or anyone on Parish Council aware of anyone who is hospitalized, ill, or a shut in, so that the information may be shared within the parish.

"Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or more are gathered together in My Name, I am there in the midst of them." -- Matthew 18: 19-20
