We are an Orthodox Christian community of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, under the care of Bishop Thomas of Charleston, Oakland, and the Mid-Atlantic.

Our community at St. Anthony's extends a heartfelt invitation to all Orthodox Christians and to all interested visitors to join us in worship and fellowship. (For driving directions, click here!)

God bless you and direct your steps!

Come, worship with us!

Our regular weekly services are as follows:

Saturdays: Vespers, 6:30 pm

For feasts that fall on a weekday, we usually meet at 6:30pm on the eve of the feast to celebrate Vesperal Liturgy.

 

NEWS and UPCOMING EVENTS

Saturday, 17 December, 6:15-8pm: Fellowship and Study Meeting in Cranberrry. We will be reading and discussion Saint Ignatius of Antioch’s Epistle to the Ephesians. Click HERE for the text. 

Past meetings
December 3: short essays by Mother Maria Skobtsova (+1944), one of the most recently canonized saints of the Church. 

 


 WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 24:

  • 9am: service of Royal Hours of Nativity
  • 6pm: Vesperal Divine Liturgy of Saint Basil, followed by parish potluck

Sunday, 11 January, 1:30 pm: Outdoor Blessing of the Waters. After Divine Liturgy, we will gather at Lake Arthur in Moraine State Park, joining the parishes of Sts Peter and Paul and St Andrew, as well as the nuns at Transfiguration Monastery. The blessing of waters will “expand” our celebration of the Lord’s Baptism by bringing the blessing of the Jordan to all of creation.

Sunday, 18 January: Feast of Anthony the Great, our patron saint. As we did in previous years, we will be hosting our brothers and sisters from the other two Orthodox parishes, donate the collection to the nuns of Transfiguration Monastery (since they are the followers of Saint Anthony, “the father of monasticism”), and learn something about how the life and teachings of Saint Anthony can help us today. Our speaker will be Dr. Timothy Becker, a student of the Fathers and an ardent seeker for the fullness of Truth, who received his doctoral degree after working with one of the very important Orthodox scholars today, Fr. John McGuckin.
