Orthodox Christianity in the Heart of the City!

Whether you are just curious about us or are searching for a new spiritual home, we welcome you as Christ, and invite you to join us soon at the Second Street Cathedral of the Holy Virgin Protection and Chapel of St Innocent of Irkutsk, one of the main places of Orthodox worship in New York City.

We are a welcoming and friendly community with a great diversity of people, young and old, native New Yorkers, university students, transplants, and immigrants united by our common faith in Jesus Christ. We believe that we experience God’s love and sustaining presence in our lives in the world, and strive to share that good news with all that we meet. 

We invite you to come and see!

What is the Orthodox Church?

“The Orthodox Christian Church is evangelical, but not Protestant.
It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman.
It is not denominational, it is pre-denominational.
It has believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for the
Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost nearly 2,000 years ago.”
