Who We Are

Welcome to St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, in Fort Worth, Texas. We are delighted to have you visit our site and learn more about the Greek Orthodox Christian Church. Please join us for Sunday Worship. We are a Christ centered liturgical church and the children are as much a part of the worship experience as are the adults, participating in every aspect of the Divine Liturgy. Sunday Church School begins after the dismissal of the Divine Liturgy.

The Greek Orthodox Church is the One Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church that was founded on the Feast of Pentecost in approximately 33 AD, when Jesus Christ sent down the Holy Spirit upon His disciples (Acts 2:1-31), preserving the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints (Jude 3).

St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church is part of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, the Holy Metropolis of Denver, under the spiritual guidance of His Eminence Metropolitan Isaiah of Denver.

Through the prayers of the Holy Fathers and of all the saints, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us!
