Welcome -- Please join us

St. Mary the Protectress Syriac Orthodox Community is a monastic community and intentional Orthodox Christian community Few Christian denominations can claim the antiquity of the Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch, whose foundations can be traced back to the very dawn of Christianity. The Church justifiably prides itself as being one of the earliest established apostolic churches.

Sunday Mass—Holy Qurbana 10:30 AM
Daily Services 9 AM, 12 Noon, 6:30 PM

The church has ignored and even blandly rejected whole groups of people base upon their appearance or lifestyle.

We are a community of people who some think have given upon the church. While others have given up on us and focused more on law and social perceptions thereby losing the true message of Christ, we have returned to where He started.

While some chose to walk away, we chose the last true rebellion and returned to the ancient church as started by Christ. We listen to you. We walk with you. We do what Christ taught all of us to do.
The Orthodox Christian Church is the original from which all others have moved away. Over the centuries other Christian churches separated themselves from, or altered, their understanding of Christian Tradition: pray God that all may have the blessing of the True Faith, undiminished and undiluted.

The church is evangelical, but not Protestant; orthodox, but not Jewish; catholic, but not Roman. She isn't non-denominational - she is pre-denominational."

Some live within community, some do not. We come together to worship and praise God. Some are monks or nuns, but most are just regular people. They are you and me.

Our fellowship following the Sunday Holy Qurbana is more than fellowship. We have a simple meal and discussed how we can make a difference in our community. We also celebrate, worship, and praise each day.

Traditional Orthodox Christianity. Serving God by Serving the Poor and the Poorest of the Poor in America's Inner Cities and Missions. Bringing the truth of Orthodox Christianity to the disenfranchised and marginalized, the poor and forgotten...the Message of the Stable. “While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” John9:4-6
