Holy Mother Queen of All
Panagia Pantovasilissa Greek Orthodox Church
A Community for All
Welcome!

 

Thank you very much for visiting our website and please allow us to introduce ourselves:

 

We are a community of Christians who are following the ancient tradition of the Orthodox Church, the original church that was born in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost. In the Holy Spirit and through our Lord Jesus Christ, we try to continue “steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in prayers” (Acts 2:42), being “led by the Spirit of God” to become “sons of God”. (Romans 8:14)

 

We did our best to present ourselves in the pages of this website, but nothing can replace a personal relationship, so we hope you will come and visit us “and speak face to face, so that your joy may be made full.” (2 John 1:12)
