- ST. BASIL'S CHURCH WILL STRIVE TO GLORIFY GOD THROUGH
ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN WORSHIP,
SINCERE LOVE AND CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER,
AND SERVICE TO THOSE IN NEED AROUND US
The Church of St. John the Evangelist includes a podvore of Leushinskaya Women's Monastery. The Nun Taisia, the closest spiritual child of St. John of Kronstadt, founded this church and podvore with the blessing of St. John of Kronstadt. This was St. John's favorite church to serve in when he visited St. Petersburg. Thousands of people would be on the rooftops, at the windows, in the street, and overflowing from the church to see St. John. At the end of the service the only way he could leave was by using a hidden staircase behind the altar and exiting through the rear of the building. The acting Abbess of the podvore is Mother Efrosiniya.
St. Basil's Orthodox Church is a Christian community of people from various ethnic and social backgrounds sharing a common commitment to the Lord, each other, and the Apostolic Faith. We warmly welcome all families, couples, and individuals who are looking for a deeper experience of the salvation offered in Jesus Christ. Come and see!
