Our Church Home
The sanctuary at St. John Chrysostom Church was consecrated by His Eminence Metropolitan PHILIP on September 19th, 2010. A celebration was held that weekend to mark the full preparation of the church. The parish of St. John Chrysostom undertook a “new beginning” in the life our the church on August 5, 2007, when we approved the construction of our new facility with sanctuary seating for 200 people, church school classrooms, office space, and a fellowship hall that serves as a meeting place for our church family. The first Divine Liturgy in the sanctuary of our church was served on March 14th, 2010 by Bishop MARK along with Father (now Bishop) Anthony Michaels and Father George Smith.
