Parish Background

The first service was held by Fr Cornel Avramescu at St Paul Episcopal Church in Tustin, CA in March 1985, with the blessing of His Grace Bishop Nathaniel of Detroit and the Romanian Episcopate.  The number of parishioners grew every year.  By 1989 they contributed in buying a lot on which the construction of our Church began.  By the year 1996, the Church building was erected and services were held here.  The interior of the Church is painted by our priest Fr Cornel.
