St. John the Evangelist Orthodox Church
Who We Are
St. John the Evangelist Eastern Orthodox Church was established in February of 2005 to bring the Orthodox Christian Faith to Tempe, one of the largest cities in the country without an Orthodox Church and home to one of the largest state universities in the country. Our parish is part of the Orthodox Church in America (a self-governing church with historical roots in Russia). The Mission continues under the care of His Grace, Bishop Benjamin, Diocese of the West (OCA).
