This is a parish of the Orthodox Church of America. You don't have to be Greek or Russian to partake of the 2000 year spiritual heritage which is the Eastern Church. I converted to Orthodoxy here after being agnostic for decades. The priest and deacon here are always available and give sound spiritual guidance for those of us who know we need it! There is so much guidance here for prayer life, for true forgiveness of ourselves and others, for life among all people--who are all to be treated as if they were Christ. It is difficult! If you are looking to change your life, this is a supportive parish. It was here that I started to read the Bible as a spiritual guide, not as a history of Jesus Christ. God bless the 2nd Street Cathedral and all its members! A great time to come is on a Saturday evening for Vigil. This is the service to prepare for Sunday's liturgy. The Cathedral is lighted very low at times during the service and the tone is contemplative. Also, feel free to ask questions (in a hushed tone of course) to anyone you see. You will feel at home.
