Dear Friends,

To be a Christian means to be part of the Church, which enables us to practice our active commitment to our belief in God and to acknowledge Christ in our way of life.

The Church is the Body of Christ on earth, the fellowship of the faithful. Its members worship together and help one another to learn and practice the faith. With the help of God and each other, we seek to become better Christians.

Since the very beginning, the Greek Orthodox Church of Saint Barbara has worked together, diligently and unselfishly, to become the "ecclesia", an expanded family that receives its blessings from almighty God.

While striving for this goal, we offer a full program of activities for our parishioners of all ages, and encourage all members to participate as actively as they can. We invite you to join us in His work.

With the love of the Lord,
Rev. Paul Pappas

Our Faith

The Church
The life of the Orthodox Church perpetuates and fulfills the ministry of Jesus Christ. The close association between Christ and His Church is reflected in the images from the Scriptures which declare that Christ is the Head and the Church is His Body, and that Christ is the Bridegroom and the Church is His bride.
