About Us PDF Print

Thank you for visiting and wanting to learn more about the Orthodox Faith.

We are the ancient Christian Church founded by the Apostles of our Lord God and Saviour Jesus Christ.

We are an exarchate of the Patriarchal Synod of Constantinople (modern day Istanbul).  Our primate is Patriarch Bartholomew.

As an Apostolic Church, we hold firm to collegial form of Church life so all Church decisions are made collectively; the only head of the Church is Jesus Christ who directs Church life through the power of the Holy Spirit.

So, are we "catholic"; yes we are. Orthodox Churches are found in every corner of our country and throughout the world and are united to each other through the communion of our bishops.

Are we apostolic; yes we are. As stated above, we are wholly and completely connected to Jesus' apostles through the collegial synods and councils lead throughout the two-thousand year history of the Church beginning with the first Apostolic Council of Jerusalem (Acts of the Apostles 15)

The "Greek" in Greek Orthodox has nothing to do with the Hellenic Republic of Greece; rather it is a link to the ancient language and traditions of the Church that developed in the Greco-Roman world in which She (the Church) was formed.

If you are interested in learning more about the Greek Orthodox Church and would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at 845-452-0772 or email us at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

If you are interested in worshipping with us, whether you are an Orthodox Christian or are new to the area and looking for a new Church home, we are pleased to welcome you.  Church services are held weekly on Wednesday evenings at 7pm and Sunday morning beginning at 8:45 with Orthros (matins) and then followed by the Divine Liturgy. Although Holy Communion and other Sacraments are offered only to baptized and Chrismated (confirmed) Orthodox Christians, all are invited to receive the antidoron (blessed bread) from the Priest at the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy.  The antidoron is not sacramental, but is reminiscent of the agape feast that followed worship in the ancient Christian Church.

After the Divine Liturgy, we invite you to join us in our Church Hall for fellowship and refreshments.
