Parish Background

St Justin Martyr is the first church to successfully complete the OCA church planting program. We had our first service on July 17, 1994 and on September 13, 1998 we received parish status. Today, St Justin’s is spiritual home to over 300 children and adults. 

On Sunday, April 10, 2005, St Justin Martyr moved to its newly completed buildings on the St Augustine Road property. We have a traditional temple that holds 300 people and a fellowship hall for 150 people. There is also a two-acre cemetery on the property.
