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.
The parish was established in 1983 by a small group of Americans. We moved to our present location in 1985. In the past few decades we have also become a spiritual home for the growing number of Russians in the St. Louis area. We are a harmonious family of Americans and Russians—those who have recently discovered Orthodoxy, as well as those born into the Faith.
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.
