WELCOME TO OUR CHURCH COMMUNITY!

HOLY RESURRECTION ORTHODOX CATHEDRAL is a parish community of the Diocese of Philadelphia & Eastern Pennsylvania of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA). Our bishop is Archbishop MARK (Maymon), who provides spiritual oversight for our community. The parish community was founded in 1894 by Fr. Alexis Toth (now a canonized saint in the Orthodox Church).

 

Holy Resurrection Cathedral exists for the purpose of worshiping and glorifying Almighty God; the Father, the Son Jesus Christ & the Holy Spirit. It confesses & proclaims the Orthodox Christian Faith which was "once and for all delivered to the saints." (Jude 3) Our Faith is that faith which was given by Jesus Christ to His Apostles and was and is preserved by the Martyrs, the Saints and all the Faithful, living and departed. We believe that the Gospel (GOOD NEWS) of Jesus presents the possibility of a life in which we are set free from those things (sins, habits, addictions, attitudes) which bind us and set us free to be who God created us to be. God, the Creator of the Universe came down to earth and took on our human flesh and became man, uniting His divinity to our humanity. He conquered death, hell and the grave by rising from dead after He suffered, died and was buried. By believing in and placing our faith and trust in what Jesus Christ did for us, we are SAVED!

 

We are not perfect people, but we have found peace, joy and hope in following Jesus Christ and we invite you to come and experience the love & presence of Jesus Christ with us!
