Icon of St. Silouan the Athonite Glory be to the Lord and His compassion - He loveth us greatly, and giveth us His peace and the grace of the Holy Spirit.St. Silouan the Athonite
Lenten Prayer of St. Ephraim the Syrian

O Lord and Master of my life,Take from me the spirit of sloth, despair, lust of power and idle talk.
But give rather the spirit of chastity, meekness of mind, patience and love to Thy servant.
Yea O Lord and King, grant me to see my own transgressions and not to judge my brother, for blessed art thou unto ages of ages. Amen.


We are parish of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, under the pastoral care of Metropolitan PHILIP, and the Diocese of Wichita and Mid-America shepherded by Bishop BASIL. We began as a mission in late 2001, sponsored by the St. Joseph Orthodox Christian Church of Houston, Texas. We were given the name of St. Silouan in 2004, and in the summer of 2012 we were granted full parish status from the Archdiocese. Follow the links at the left of the page to learn more about the parish, upcoming services, and the Orthodox Faith.

We are a pan-Orthodox community and welcome new members from any of the Eastern Orthodox Churches, as well anyone who is interested in learning more about Orthodox Christianity.

Visitors are always welcome at any of our services or other events!


+ Metropolitan PHILIP +

Our Metroplitan PHILIP has fallen asleep in Christ on March 19. You can find information on service schedules and pastoral messages from Patriarch John X on the Archdiocesan web site. Please remember him in your prayers.


We will have Divine Liturgy Monday evening, March 24, 6:30PM, for the Feast of the Annunciation. On the day of the feast (March 25) we relax our Lenten fasting and are allowed fish, wine and oil.

Lenten Services

Please check our calendar for our schedule of Lenten services. On Wednesday, March 26, we will have a free meal for all after Presanctified Liturgy!

Parish status

We have been assigned to full parish status by the Antiochian Archdiocese and are no longer considered a mission! This web site and other documents will be updated to reflect this change.

Online Store

We've created a new online book store through Amazon to help make it easier to find materials to learn about Orthodox Christianity. Check it out!
