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.

Our Services

What are services like?
We celebrate according to the ancient tradition of the Orthodox Church, in English. Orthodox worship is teaching through beauty: the hymns are very poetic, but also carriers of a dense theology and spirituality, so that we can all learn from the very act of worship, and deepen our awareness of God and our neighbor.

What is the community like?
We are a small community, seeking to become better disciples of Christ by practicing faith, hope, and love. We value hospitality, and seek to deepen our fellowship as we journey together. We are open to all who are seeking the living God.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Come and see. Everyone is welcome. May God direct your steps.
