Our Parish
in Huntsville, Alabama

We are a Greek Orthodox parish, part of the oldest Christian tradition dating back to 33 A.D., the day of Pentecost.  We trace our roots back to the Apostles and their teachings.

We are a stronghold of the moral, theological, liturgical and spiritual traditions of the Early Church.

We invite you to come and join us to experience the worship of Early Christianity in the modern setting.

For Orthodox Christians, the paintings of Christ, the Saints and other biblical figures in Churches, chapels, and homes are not just art but an integral part of worship.

Elias Katsaros, who immigrated to Alabama from Greece, has become one of the nation's premier icon painters. The Katsaros are active members of our church in Huntsville, where all the iconography is by Elias' hand.
