St. Paul the Apostle Orthodox Church

Dayton, Ohio

St. Paul's is a family-friendly, all-in-English parish of the Orthodox Church in America, Diocese of the Midwest. We welcome visitors and inquirers, and look forward to the chance to introduce ourselves to you!

From the "Lord, I Call" verses for the Sunday of All Saints:

Come, let us praise the heroes of our faith:
Apostles, martyrs, holy priests, and noble women!
They fought for the faith in every part of the earth.
Though born of earth, they were united with the heavenly hosts.
Through their sufferings, they triumphed over evil by the grace of Christ.
As unfading lights, they illumine our hearts, and with boldness they pray for our souls.

The Wednesday Morning Discussion Group will resume this Wednesday, June 20 at 11 AM to discuss the weekend readings: Romans 6:11-17, Matthew 8:14-23 & Romans 6:18-23, Matthew 8:5-13. In the near future, we will start a new book for discussion: American Savior: A Novel of Divine Politics. This one is for fun, but also gives us a chance to think about if Jesus became President of the United States, what would Jesus do?
