Welcome to Our Parish!

Welcome to the website of the Parish of the Protection of the Holy Virgin Mary. We are an Eastern Orthodox Christian Church, located in beautiful Santa Rosa, in the heart of California's Sonoma County.


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.
