Our philosophy is to be as Catholic as possible.
For us that means to preach the gospel,
to strive for beautiful liturgies, to embrace the tradition,
to show heroic charity towards those in need,
and to be unflinching and orthodox in our catechesis.

Entering into this parish church is like a visit to heaven.  The saints from every age and place surround you. The warm, rustic interior is infused by the brilliant jewel tones of the stained glass. The altar comes from Asia, the altar ware from Spain, the candlesticks from America, there are icons from all over the world, and yet some of the best art in the church is local. It is a Latin rite parish, but with Byzantine flavors – an eclectic blend of rich culture and beauty that is timelessly Catholic. And while you know you’re in America, at times it feels like you’ve stepped out of the Appalachians, and into the Carpathians.  Add to all that the flickering of candlelight, the scent of incense, and the sound of Gregorian chant, and you begin to get a sense of what a visit to this little parish can be like.
