Message from Father Vladimir
"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matt. 11:28)

We greet you, dear visitor to our website, with the same greeting that appears over the front door entrance to our church. It is an invitation to everyone from our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ Himself to come to His Holy Church.
Mission Statement of our Parish
The mission of Christ the Savior Orthodox Church is to proclaim and live out the gospel of our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ as it has been handed down to us since apostolic times. By the grace of the Holy Spirit, we:
  • Worship in the fullness of joy and truth.
  • Unite ourselves with Christ through sacramental life.
  • Reach out and care for others in love.
By being faithful to this life, we are transformed into the Body of Christ, bringing the Kingdom of God to all.
Introduction to Our Website
Our website is designed to provide both a glimpse of our parish family life, as well as to serve as a source of information for parish visitors seeking directions to find the church. Perhaps you have arrived at the website from another Internet location? We encourage everyone to explore our site; to learn further about us and about Orthodox Christianity. Our photo gallery is periodically updated, catching important events in the life of our parish. If you would like to learn more about Orthodox Christianity in general, or about us in particular, we encourage you to contact us. We would love to speak with you.

Saint Nectarios of Aegina, our parish patron Saint, in the process of building a monastery, used the image of a lighthouse saying:

"I am building a lighthouse for you, and God will put a light in it that will shine unto the breadth and length of the whole world. Many will see the light and will come here."

It is our prayer that all who visit this website will be attracted to that same Light, our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ and will come join us in worshiping Him.

"I AM the Light of the world; whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8: 12-14)

The Children's Choir sing the Troparion for Lazarus Saturday!

Liturgy in Turkana

Please take a moment to check out this video! It shows the first morning of this summer's mission when we took part in the Consecration of St. Peter in Loupwala. Father Vladimir was the team leader in 2012 when the church was built. It is also the community where Father celebrated their first Liturgy in 2007, after the community had been baptized for one year.
