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 Word from the Holy Fathers

"...Let us all raise our eyes to God in the heavens, crying as Jeremiah (Bar. 3:35-38) did: Our God is the One seen on earth; He voluntarily lived among men, and did not suffer change; He revealed Himself to the prophets in changed forms. Ezekiel observed Him in the form of a man on a fiery chariot; and Daniel saw Him as Son of God and ancient of days, old and young, as he proclaimed Him the Lord Who appeared and illumined all things...."

– St. Romanos the Melodist, Kontakion 6, On Epiphany
