Troparion for St. Silouan

By prayer thou didst receive Christ for thy teacher in the way of humility, and the Spirit bore witness to salvation in thy heart. Wherefore all peoples called unto hope, rejoice in this day of thy memorial, O sacred Father Silouan. Pray unto Christ our God for the salvation of our souls.

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!

St. Timon Sunday

On Sunday, July 26, we will remember our sister Diocese of Bosra-Hauran in Syria. This Sunday is selected because it is the closest to the feast day of St. Timon, the patron saint of that Diocese. We will take a special collection, with all of the funds going to Syria in support of the needs there - given the strife and turmoil, this is an especially important need.

Dormition of the Theotokos

The Dormition Fast begins August 1 and continues until the Feast of the Dormition, which we will commemorate with Divine Liturgy Saturday morning, August 15, 9:30AM.

Transfiguration

Divine Liturgy for this feast will be Wednesday evening, August 5, at 6:30PM. The Feast itself is the next day, August 6.
