The twenty nine Orthodox Christian parishes and two monasteries of the Cleveland and Lorain, Ohio, area welcome you. The Orthodox Church, which was established at Pentecost, proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ, sanctifies its adherents through sacraments and serves humanity through many charitable endeavors.

Everyone is welcome to visit an Orthodox Church; however sacraments are reserved to practicing Orthodox Christians. The information provided in this web site is presented to aid the public in locating a church, attending its services, and learning the doctrine that it proclaims.
