Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
We are delighted that you have shown interest in our Orthodox academy and its educational opportunities available to your families and friends.
As one of the oldest religious institutions in the world, the Orthodox Church (also known as the “Eastern Orthodox Church”) has played a prominent role in the history, education and culture of Eastern Europe, as well as many other parts of the world. Currently there are 225 million Orthodox Christians worldwide and over 1 million right here in the United States. It is the second largest body in all of Christendom.
The Orthodox Church teaches us that it is the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic church established by Jesus Christ and that its bishops are the successors of Christ’s apostles. We practice the original Christian faith passed down through the ages by Sacred and Holy Tradition. The word “orthodox” means “right belief” or “right praise”.
Built on the foundation of Christ and His Apostles, the Nicene Creed originated at the Council of Nicea in 325 A.D.; and is the central Orthodox statement of faith.
We are always available to answer any questions that you might have regarding our faith and academy.
Once again, we thank you for your interest and look forward to hearing from you soon.
Richard “Deacon Nektari” Rodriquez
Dean of Academic and Spiritual Studies
