Parish Background

SS Constantine and Helen Orthodox Church began in the early part of 1974, when Met. Vladimir of blessed memory made contact with Orthodox faithful of Colorado Springs.  At the time, liturgical services were only periodically held at the Air Force Academy by various Orthodox Chaplains.  Encouraged by the response, Met. Vladimir asked Fr John Schrieber, an assistant priest at St Innocent Church in Tarzana, CA to consider starting a mission in our city.  While on vacation in August 1974, Fr John stopped in Colorado Springs.  One month later, he moved here and began work with the mission.  The first “official” service took place on September 8, 1974, the Feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos and the beginning of the Liturgical year…Truly a fitting and appropriate beginning fro a new community.

In September 2001, SS Constantine and Helen Church broke ground on the new and glorious Holy Theophany Temple reflective of both the quantitative and qualitative growth of Orthodoxy in southern Colorado. The temple was completed in 2002.  A new fellowship hall was completed in 2009.
