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!

You ascended in glory, O Christ our God,
granting joy to Your Disciples by the promise of the Holy Spirit.
Through the blessing, they were assured
that You are the Son of God,
the Redeemer of the world!
