Icon of St. Silouan the Athonite The Holy Spirit dwells in the humble soul, bringing freedom, peace, love and blessedness.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.

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!
