Greetings! We at St Andrew are Orthodox Christians, worshiping according to the ancient Western Rite practiced by the early Christians in the West for the first 1,000 years of Christianity. We are canonical (mainline) Orthodox in the Antiochian Patriarchate headquartered in Damascus, Syria, under His Beatitude Patriarch John X, and in the self-ruled Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America under His Eminence Metropolitan Philip Saliba.
Our regular services include Vespers most Saturdays at 4 P.M. and every Sunday Matins at 8:45 A.M. followed by Divine Liturgy (Mass) at 9:30 A.M. We also often have Wednesday night Bible study. Other services for Holy Days will be announced. Please call 352.357.1549 for a complete schedule of services for each week.
Check the Calendar page to see our
schedule of Lenten services. Western Rite Orthodox Lent begins Ash
Wednesday March 20th. Orthodox Easter is May 5th with the Easter Vigil
service May 4th.
Feel free to browse our web site. More pages will be added soon. We would love for you to join us for worship and welcome you to call or email us with questions anytime. God's blessings! Come pray with us!
Collect for St Andrew
Almighty God, who didst give such grace unto Thy holy Apostle, St Andrew, that he readily obeyed the calling of Thy son Jesus Christ, and followed him without delay, grant unto us all, that we, being called by Thy holy Word may forthwith give up ourselves obediently to fulfill Thy holy commandments, through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
