St. Cyprian of Carthage

 Come and See! (John 4:29)

If you are not a Christian,

but are curious and just want to learn more about the faith,

come and see.

If you are hungering for genuine worship, an ancient offering of adoration

and not a lecture or emotional pep-rally,

come and see.

If you are a Christian who is tired of following this new religious leader

or that new contemporary Christian emphasis,

come and see the living tradition that has been from the beginning.

If you are an Orthodox Christian and need to unite yourself

to a community with which to walk the narrow path of repentance,

come and see.

We will welcome you in love and with open arms.
