St. Elias is a small church, and as a result, struggles with meeting our monthly budget.  We rely heavily on the generous donations and regular contributions of our parish members, friends and those who have historical ties to the church. A sincere thank you to anything you can do for the well-being and long term survival of St. Elias.  May God be with you during this difficult time.

What is the Orthodox Church?

“The Orthodox Christian Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman.
It is not denominational, it is pre-denominational. It has believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died

for the Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost nearly 2,000 years ago.”
