Welcome to Saint Thomas the Apostle

Orthodox Christian Church!

We are a Christ-centered church who loves to have visitors, and you are welcome to visit or join us for a service anytime! All services are conducted in English. While our church was founded by immigrants from Slovakia, Poland and Western Ukraine, today we are comprised of peoples of all ethnic backgrounds, most of whom are American converts to the ancient Orthodox Christian faith.


If you have questions or would like to visit when there isn't a service, please use the email contact form on the bottom of this page to contact our priest, Fr. Joseph Edgington.

A prayer for the unity of the Orthodox Church

Behold, how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

O Lord Jesus Christ our God, head of the Church that is thy Body, who prayed for your disciples to the Father, “That they all may be one; as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that you have sent me”: To you we confess that your Church is one, and cannot be divided; we mourn for all who separate themselves from Her; we pray that you may make the schisms to cease. We put not our trust in princes, nor in the sons of men, in whom there is no salvation; rather, we put all our hope in you, and we beg of you, send your Holy Spirit to guide our hierarchs, that they may rightly divide the word of your truth, and that they may bear witness to the unity of the Church in all their decisions. Preserve us, O Lord, from the Evil One and all his attempts to divide us, from the machinations of governments, from the ambitions of fallen men, and from the sin of pride. Heal the wounds caused by our lack of love, and fill us, and our hierarchs, with love for one another as brothers in Christ. Keep us in your truth; your word is truth. To you, and your Father, and the Holy Spirit: the Holy Trinity, the source and manifestation of all unity, one in essence and undivided, do we ascribe all praise, honor, and glory, now and ever and unto ages of ages.
