A Christmas Prayer

Today Christ is born of the Virgin in Bethlehem. Today He who knows no beginning now begins to be, and the Word is made flesh. The powers of heaven greatly rejoice, and the earth with mankind makes glad. The magi offer gifts, the shepherds proclaim the marvel, and we cry aloud without ceasing: Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will among men.

- From the Matins of Christmas Eve

Welcome to the Ancient Christian Church

The Orthodox Christian Church is thousands of years old and traces its history back to the apostles themselves. From ancient rituals to ornate iconography the Orthodox Church is a place of beauty. Incense, bright colors, and chant reflect the beauty of God. It is also a place of deep spirituality that heals and transforms lives. It is a people marked by love, forgiveness, and unity. It is a family sharing in each other's joys and hardships.

Orthodox Christians are historically from the lands of Russia, Greece, the Middle East, and even Ethiopia and India, but today also live in America. The Orthodox Christian Church is providing this same changeless and rich spiritual tradition to those living in our modern world and Americans of all backgrounds.

Holy Apostles Orthodox Church is a parish of the diocese of New York and New Jersey under his grace bishop Michael and is part of the Orthodox Church in America, a synod of Orthodox Christian bishops and dioceses.  Our community is comprised of many ethnic backgrounds and all our services are in English. If you are looking for a new church home, simply wanting to visit, or interested in learning more about the Orthodox Christian faith please come visit us. All are welcomed.
