Parish Background

Palm Coast, Florida is a community in Flagler County which was developed by ITT over 25 years ago.  It is located about halfway between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine.  Palm Coast has been one of the fastest growing communities in Florida and the nation since that time.

In 1993 Fr Theodore Bacha, rector of St Simeon’s Church in Titusville, asked several Palm Coast Orthodox Christians who were attending services in Titusville if they would like to establish their own mission.  Services were held once a month with Fr Ted on Sunday afternoons in a storefront location.

In 1995 His Eminence Archbishop Dmitri officially proclaimed St Alexis a mission station.  Fr Michael Meredith, a retired priest, conducted services every Sunday morning and Vespers one Saturday evening each month.  A Sunday School program and adult Bible class were started.

In 1996 Fr Michael was assigned full time priest in Titusville.  St. Alexis Mission moved to a larger location when we outgrew the storefront.  In 1997, we again relocated to St Stephens Catholic Church in Bunnell. A dedicated group of Orthodox Christians continue to work toward making services available to area Orthodox and to bring others to the Orthodox faith.  The side entrance to the church is handicapped accessible.

Divine Liturgy is held on Sunday at 9:30 AM.  For nearly 11 years, Archpriest Nicholas Molodyko-Harris (retired from the Diocese of Alaska) has served as spiritual father to St. Alexis parishioners.  Joined by his wife, Matushka Anastasia Harris, they have faithfully traveled from their home in Merritt Island to serve St. Alexis each week.  Matushka Anastasia serves as choir director.

We look forward to the challenges and opportunity of spreading the Orthodox Faith to our community.
