Welcome

Visitors to an Orthodox church are often overwhelmed by the beauty of the Liturgy. This beauty can, in itself, be enough to begin to transform us. But if our encounter with Orthodoxy ends with beauty, then we’ve missed a critical point.

All of the beauty we have here at Christ the Saviour serves to point us to Christ. And this means that the most important question for Orthodox Christians – and for you, our visitor – is the one Christ asked His disciples before preparing them for His Passion, Death and Resurrection: “Who do you say that I am?

May the beauty you find here lead you to Christ, the Incarnate Creator of heaven and earth, Who reveals the worship of the Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

With love in Christ,

Fr. Leonid Schmidt
