Who We Are
Saint Anthony's is a relatively small, multi-ethnic community, with a healthy mix of Orthodox-from-birth members and converts to the faith. Our priest, Fr. Bogdan Bucur, is a native Romanian who came to America in 2000, completed his graduate education in Theology at Marquette University, and is now teaching Bible and Patristics at Duquesne University, in Pittsburgh.
The mission of our Church is as it has always been: to care for the people of God and the community of Butler; to embody Christ's teachings through the careful practice of prayer, study, fasting, almsgiving, and hospitality; to proclaim the fullness of the Orthodox faith to the city of Butler and its surrounding areas.
