Parish Background

For several years Orthodox Christians of the Four Corners region gathered once a month for worship and participation in the Church’s sacramental life. Initially we gathered in Farmington, NM and were sacrificially serviced by priests from Albuquerque and Sante Fe. As more and more persons from Colorado showed interest, we deemed it more effective to re-focus our efforts and ground our Orthodox Christian mission to the region in Durango. We are persons from Greek, Russian, Syrian, Moldovan, Ethiopian, and other traditionally Orthodox countries. We are “convert” as well, as the Orthodox Church has become “home” to literally tens of thousands of Americans who have discovered the great richness and stability of Orthodox Christian worship, doctrine, spirituality, and life.
