Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church is a parish of the Eastern Pennsylvania Diocese of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA).

Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church is a Pan-Orthodox, multi-ethnic parish whose members come from a host of American, Slavic, European, Greek, Middle Eastern, and African backgrounds. Established in 1963, the parish has developed and grown spiritually, as well as numerically, into a dynamic Orthodox Christian community. We offer a wide range of liturgical, educational, and social programs, as well as missionary, evangelical, and local outreach endeavors.

We invite you to visit us and learn more about the Orthodox Church. Discover the Church that maintains a fidelity to scripture and doctrine and can trace its unbroken roots back to Apostolic times.
