Welcome to Our Parish!

Welcome to the website of the Parish of the Protection of the Holy Virgin Mary, also known as Saint Seraphim Orthodox Church. We are an Eastern Orthodox Christian Church located in beautiful Santa Rosa, in the heart of California's Sonoma County. What's the he Orthodox Church? It's the original Christian Church founded by Jesus and continued by his Apostles. It is the same Church described in the Bible as the Body of Christ and the Bride of Christ (1 Corinthians 12 : 27; Ephesians 5 : 23–25). Throughout its 2000-year history Orthodox Christianity has remained faithful to the teachings and practices passed on from the Apostles and early Church Fathers (2 Thessalonians 2 : 15). See this link to learn more.

 

Visit the Photo Galleries to see our two churches—St. Seraphim of Sarov and the Protection, the smaller wooden church, hand built by our founding members in 1936. You will also find glimpses of our Parish grounds, clergy and activities. Please see our CALENDAR, MONTHLY BULLETIN and Weekly Announcements.

 
If you have questions about the Orthodox Church, or our particular Parish, please feel free to email me. I would welcome hearing from you. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Father Lawrence Margitich
