In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,



    We are an orthodox christian community in the Mohawk Valley.  We are committed to living a life in Jesus Christ, being nourished by our common worship in the Holy Eucharist and the other services of the Church; by personal prayer; and by striving to bring the Light of Christ to our community.

    Whenever you are in the area, please come and worship with us.  We are located at 305 Main Road, Herkimer, NY 13350; just off NYS Route 5, east of the village.  Detailed directions are at Driving Directions.  


    We celebrate the Hours and Divine Liturgy at 9:10 AM on Sunday mornings, and Great Vespers the night before at 4:00 PM during winter months and 5PM after the time change in the spring.  Please stay for Coffee Hour downstairs following services where we can sit and get to know each other. Other services are held according to our service schedule Service Schedule and local tradition.


If you have any questions, or need help locating our church - please don't hesitate to contact the priest at or call him at the rectory at 315-866-3272.




 Please remain standing, especially during Communion time. Communion is for Orthodox Christians who have properly prepared through prayer, fasting, almsgiving, and a recent confession. Orthodox guests need to introduce themselves first to the priest before communing.



At the request of numerous readers, we have  Questions for preparation for Holy Confession in .pdf format for you to download.
