Welcome!

Glory be to Jesus Christ!  Glory forever!

Hello and welcome to the website of St. James Orthodox Church of Wesminster, Maryland.  We are a mission parish of the Antiochian Archdiocese of North America, and we are under the supervision of Bishop Thomas of Charlestown, Oakland and the Mid-Atlantic.  Our mission has been in existence for 6 years and is currently worshipping in rented space on Cranberry Rd., just off of Rt. 140.

We want to welcome all to visit St. James, regardless of whether you are among the Orthodox faithful, or if you are interested in examining or exploring the Orthodox Christian faith for the first time yourself.

We look forward to your visit, and if in the meantime there is any way we can be of assistance, please don’t hesistate to get in touch with us through our contact page.

May God bless you and yours, through His Divine Grace and love for mankind, always now and ever and unto ages of ages, amen.

Father Raphael Barberg
