We are a Mission Church affiliated with the Orthodox Church in America, nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of upstate New York near Oneonta. We welcome everyone, from the cradle Orthodox to the inquirer who wishes to learn more about the Christian Faith.
We meet during the week in the "Catacombs," located in the basement of St James' Church 305 Main St., Oneonta, New York. On Sunday, we meet at Holy Myrrhbearers Monastery, 144 Bert Washburn Road, Otego, New York.
If you are new to the area, merely passing through, or perhaps even a lifelong resident, we welcome you to worship with us!
Reflecting the world-wide Orthodox church, our Mission is multi-ethnic and multicultural. All services are in English.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments. We hope to meet you soon!
