The John Chrysostom Orthodox Church serves Orthodox Christians in the St. Louis Area. It is a Parish of the Diocese of Chicago and Mid-America of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia.
While our services follow the tradtion handed to us from the Russian Church we are open to all people and invite all who wish to also celebrate “one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all, who is above all and through all and in all.” (Ephesians 4:5-6).
We have as our mission the aim to bring all to the Light of Christ our Saviour and His Body, the Orthodox Church. The parish sees itself as a witness to the tradition of the Apostolic Church, and by God’s grace and in the power of the Holy Spirit, we pray that we may reveal Christ’s way of sanctification and eternal salvation to all.
