Saint Katherine Orthodox Church

Saint Katherine Orthodox Church

Who We Are

Ancient Christianity practiced in today's world. Come and See!

We are Orthodox Christians with a 2,000 year old documented and spiritual history connecting us directly to Jesus Christ and His Apostles, and the gates of Hell have not prevailed against our worldwide Church or Faith. We keep to the same ancient form of worship passed down from the Apostles of Jesus Christ through the last 2,000 years via their successors in what is known world-wide as the Orthodox Church. What you will find at our church is a sincere, deep, and humble desire to worship God (the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit) the same way as is described throughout the Bible. We teach that salvation is a life long process; prepare to work for it. There is no checklist; there is only God's perfect judgement. We strive in every moment of everyday to repent from all forms of a sin, known and unknown. We make every attempt to purely and humbly love the Lord our God with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our strength, and with all our mind; and our neighbor as ourselves.

What to Expect

What are services like?
Our local church is a new mission of the Orthodox Christian Church, and we are looking to share our worldwide historical Church and Faith with the people of Pelion, Gaston, Swansea and other surrounding cities. Within this website you will find information about our history, current ministries, and be able to learn about Orthodox Christianity. Our parish is very traditional in its style of worship, while being very practical in addressing the issues that face all Christians today. If you are in search of a new church home, where members are encouraged to live good Christian lives in thought, word and deed, then come and see what's going on at our church.

What is the community like?
Very open and friendly. We run a vibrant homeschool ministry as well as several other ministries to serve the local community.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Come as you are and experience an ancient Christian worship service.
