Welcome to Saint Sophia’s Greek Orthodox Church and thank you for visiting our site.  We greet you with the affection of Christ.  We are a parish of the Orthodox Christian Faith which was established on the day of Holy Pentecost in the Year 33 AD: the ancient, historic, and original church of the New Testament, which has neither added to, nor taken away from the faith experience of the apostles who witnessed the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth.
While we are a Greek Orthodox parish, our services are conducted in both Greek and English.  Each Sunday after Divine Liturgy, we come together in fellowship in our social hall for light refreshments and welcome you to come among us in peace for prayer and divine worship.
