You are welcome in our parish! We are thankful for everyone who God sends, in His divine providence, to our spiritual home. Those who would like to learn more about the ancient Christian faith should feel free to contact me. The Church welcomes all who have a sincere desire to follow the Founder and Head of our ancient Faith, our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ.
Saint Paul the Apostle Orthodox Church of Las Vegas, Nevada is a parish of the Diocese of the West, Orthodox Church in America. We are under the episcopacy of His Eminence, Archbishop Benjamin, Archbishop of San Francisco and the West, and the ruling hierarch of the Orthodox Church in America is His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon, Archbishop of Washington, Metropolitan of all America and Canada.
If you are an Orthodox first-time visitor without a parish of your own we encourage you to join our active membership. Simply ask the usher, someone on duty at the candle stand, or me.
Our parishioners welcome you after the Divine Liturgy to join us in our Community Hall next door for a cup of coffee and conversation with our parish family of greater Las Vegas. You will find people from most every walk of life and of great cultural diversity. We are one family in Christ bound together in one common faith.
Father John Dresko, Rector
As many of you know but for those who don't, my name is Stephen Osburn. I am from Las Vegas and St. Paul's Orthodox Church and I am a third year Seminarian at St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary (SVS).
From time to time, I will provide updates on how my journey (or as I like to call "adventure") here at SVS. I will post a little bit about life here at the seminary, as well as photos of various events.
I thank you all for the love and support you have given to my family and I. Please keep us in your prayers and God Bless!
Stephen Osburn Jr.
