Hymn for the Presentation of the Lord

Rejoice, O Virgin Theotokos, full of grace, for from thee arose the Sun of justice, Christ our God, lighting those who are in darkness. Rejoice and be glad, O righteous old man, carrying in thine arms the Deliverer of our souls, Who granteth us Resurrection.

Welcome

We are parish of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, under the pastoral care of Metropolitan JOSEPH, 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!
