Christ the Savior Orthodox Church
Welcome to Our Parish!

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)

Upcoming Events
Fr. Vladimir and Matushka Suzanne return to Turkana!

It is with joy that we announce that, by the Grace of God, Fr. Vladimir and Matushka Suzanne will be returning to Turkana for a fifth time this summer. 

Here are a few words from Matushka Suzanne regarding their upcoming Mission Trip:

“O my! Here it is!” These were the words of Fr. Vladimir as he opened his OCMC e mail on Friday, May 2. We were being invited to be members of the construction team to Lockichar, Kenya, East Africa on June 17-July 1. Father always says: “If the call comes, we will answer.” We have answered YES. For the fifth trip in seven years, we will be back with our Turkana Brothers and Sisters. We look forward to constructing a third church and being present for the consecration of St. Peter’s Church in Loupwala. This is the desert community where we celebrated their first Liturgy under a tree in 2007 and built the church in 2012. Again I am writing to you, inviting you to be a part of spreading the Gospel by praying for us, our team and the beautiful people of Turkana; who hunger and thirst for the Word of God. Your continued prayers will give us the strength that we need to follow in the footsteps of the Apostle Mark as the Gospel continues to be preached in Africa.

We cannot answer this call by ourselves but only by the Grace of God and the encouragement of our family and friends. You will be remembered daily in our thoughts and prayers as we journey again to Turkana. Thank You for your faithful love and support.
In God’s Tender Mercy,
