Welcome to Our Parish

For over 90 years we have served as a witness to the ancient Eastern Orthodox Faith to the people of Kern County.  Our services are predominantly in English as we serve the diverse and vibrant Orthodox Community of Kern County. 

In addition to numerous converts to the Orthodox Faith, we are also blessed to have Orthodox Christian members of many various ethnic backgrounds, including Greek, Russian, Ukranian, Romanian, Serbian, Moldavian, Egyptian, Eritrean, Ethiopian, Mexican, and Vietnamese, as well as from the Holy Land and much of the Middle East including Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq.  

If you are unfamiliar with the ancient Orthodox Christian Faith, you'll find a great deal of information under the "Our Faith" tab. You can also view a three part video series on the orgins of the Orthodox Church: "Beginnings", "Byzantium", and "A Hidden Treasure".


"It has become fashionable to attend a church which fits the attended, but we Orthodox have never succumbed to fashion, and rather than attend a church which fits itself to us, we attend the Church which Christ founded for us, and then try to fit ourselves to Him."

You are welcome to join us in worship.
