Welcome to St Mary Orthodox Church, Chambersburg, PA

 

Welcome to Saint Mary Orthodox Church

St Mary is an Orthodox Christian Church. Organized in August 1995, with its first Divine Liturgy September 15, 1995, it is the only Orthodox Church in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, and serves the entire community, without regard to ethnic background. Our membership includes people of Greek, Russian, Bulgarian, Egyptian, and Iraqi descent, as well as people whose families came from Italy, England, Germany, Slovakia, and Slovenia, and the dates of immigration to what is now the United States range from 1621 to1990.

ABOUT OUR PRIEST We are very fortunate in having as our Priest one of the most outstanding Priests of the Antiochian Archdiocese, Fr Theodore Pulcini.

THIS WEEK

 

Transfiguration August 6

Verily, Christ took Peter, James and John to a high mountain apart. And He was transfigured before them, His countenance shining as the sun, and His clothes became white as light. Moses and Elijah appeared and conversed with Him, and a bright cloud covered them. Then behold, a voice from the cloud said, This is My beloved Son in Whom I am well-pleased; hear Him.
