Our parish community is a member of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the U.S.A. whose presiding bishop is His Grace, Bishop Gregory of Nyssa. The American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese is an autonomous diocese under the spiritual protection of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople of which His All-Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I is the Primate.

Our congregation of over 100 families is trans-national, attracting members from all branches of Orthodoxy and through conversion to the Holy Orthodox Faith.

These individuals are discovering the ancient faith and rich traditions of the Orthodox Church. They have been attracted by her mystical vision of God and His Kingdom, by the beauty of her worship, by the purity of her Christian faith, and by her continuity with the past. 

These are only some of the treasures of the Church, which has a history reaching back to the time of the Apostles.

In our Western Hemisphere, the Orthodox Church has been developing into a valuable presence and distinctive witness for more than two hundred years.

Eternal Memory: Sylvie Schoucair

Wednesday, December 04, 2019

Sylvie Y. Schoucair, the beloved Aunt and Foster Mother of our dear Parishioner, Jed Schoucair, Fell-Asleep-In-The-Lord on Tuesday December 3, 2019 at her home in Beirut, Lebanon.  Sylvie was well loved by her three sisters and two brothers, whom she unselfishly dedicated her life to.  Learning of her brother’s divorce, she broke her marriage engagement and volunteered to take care of and raise his children, Jed (3 year old son) and Raïda (8-month-old daughter).  Her continuous love and service to the family was so strong that Jed and Raïda  were spared the pain of  the absence of  their own mother.  Sylvie, a woman of great faith,  prayerfully and unselfishly took on the role of caregiver and helped provide a stable and nurturing home life for them.
