Parish Background

The community which now comprises Saint Cyprian of Carthage Orthodox Church was begun in 1974 by Father George and Mary Ann DeTrana prior to the formation of the Diocese of the South. Services were held in two temporary locations until property was purchased in 1978.

From the outset, the purpose of the mission has been to bring the Orthodox Christian Church in English to the people of Central Virginia. The congregation currently represents a cross-section of Orthodoxy in America with members drawn from every major jurisdiction as well as a significant number of converts to the faith.

Saint Cyprian of Carthage Orthodox Church is a parish of the Diocese of the South.
