Who We Are
We are a self-funded mission of the Diocese of Chicago and Mid-America of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. Founded on the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord (August) 2012, we are the first community of the Russian Orthodox Church ever established in Peoria, Illinois. We are dedicated to our attainment to the "unity of the faith and the knowledge of [Christ's] unapproachable glory" as we come together "for the sake of the glory of [His] name".
We are committed to the Orthodox Christian Faith, as it was established by the Holy Spirit through the Apostles on Pentecost, has been preserved unaltered by the Holy Spirit through the saints, and lives today through the continuing overshadowing of the Holy Spirit over our bishops and us.
