Who We Are

SS. Sergius and Herman of Valaam Orthodox Church has been serving the Keweenaw, since 1995. It is located in Atlantic Mine in the heart of Copper Country in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The Church that Jesus Christ founded in the East, 2000 years ago is still alive, still filled and guided by the Holy Spirit, still maintains an unbroken, living connection straight back to the Apostles, and to Jesus Christ Himself.

We are a parish in the Diocese of Chicago and Midwest of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR).

All services are in the English language.

What to Expect

What are services like?
Our services are following the russian orthodox tradition. However our services are all in English. The Saturday night Vigil is normally a service that lasts about 2.5 hours. The Sunday morning service is done normally shortly before noon. The normal posture in our service is standing. However people that are not able to stand for that long time, out of illness or if they are not used to this, are welcome to sit on the benches at the perimeter of the church. We ask if physical possible that you please stand during the proclamation of the Gospel and during the distribution of communion. We have a communal meal after our Sunday service which everyone is welcome to.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome every visitor. Questions you might have are welcomed after the services. Only Baptized and Chrismated Orthodox Christians who have prepared by fasting, prayer, and recent confession may receive communion at SS. Sergius and Herman.
