Historical Details

Build - Founding Year:
2012
History:
Sts. Joachim and Anna Orthodox Mission held its first services on August 18 and 19, 2012 (August 5 and 6, Old System), the Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord. We serve God in His Holy Church here with the blessing of his Eminence, Archbishop Peter of Cleveland, Administrator of the Diocese of Chicago and Mid-America of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR). The ROCOR is in full canonical union with the Russian Orthodox Church, Moscow Patriarchate, but is administratively autonomous. Because we are a young mission, we are great in Spirit (with God's help!) but small in material goods. When you visit us, we will be able to offer you our love in Christ, and--soon, we hope--more in a way of programs, coffee hours (trapeza) and the other things one often looks for in a church. However, if you don't yet have a home in a Orthodox parish, are looking for a place to grow in faith, hope and love and want to come in on the "ground floor", consider joining our family. We are blessed to participate in the growth of Holy Orthodoxy in San Antonio and gratefull to God for the cordial relations shared among the Orthodox parishes here. St. Anthony the Great (Orthodox Church in America), St. Ephriam the Syrian (Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese), and St. Sophia's Greek Orthodox Church. If you are already a member of an Orthodox parish, we welcome your visit! The church family you already have loves and values you. May all our parishes work together for the spread of the holy Orthodox Church.
