Our Parish is the local eucharistic community of the Church in Tacoma, WA. The aims and purposes of our Parish are to keep, practice and proclaim the Orthodox Faith pure and undefiled.
The diakonia (ministry) of the Parish includes: 1) proclaiming and teaching the Gospel in accordance with the Orthodox Faith; 2) sanctifying the faithful through God's grace in worship, the Divine Liturgy, and other sacraments; 3) enhancing its parishioners' spiritual life; and 4) adding to the numbers of the faithful by receiving persons into the Church through instruction, baptism, and/or chrismation. In addition, the Parish has established education and philanthropic activities to foster the aims and mission of the Parish and to edify its parishioners in the Faith and ethos of the Church.
