There is a newly-established Pan-Orthodox Christian Mission in Potsdam with a campus ministry outreach.
It is under the OCA Diocese of New York/New Jersey in cooperation with the OCA Archdiocese of Canada and the Monastic Community of St. Silouan, Johnstown, ON. Members of this parish are from all ethnic backgrounds: Greek, Russian, Albanian, Ukranian, Serbian, Eritrean and just plain American. Services are primarily in English and the musicchanted is from both the Byzantine and Russian traditions. The community is a mix of students, post-doctoral researchers and familes; of cradle-orthodox and converts to the Faith. The priests, Fr. David Edwards and Fr. Luke Majoros (when Fr. David is unavailable), are both hieromonks from the Monastic Community of St. Silouan. Parishioners frequently worship at St. Silouan’s on weeks when there are no services in Potsdam. The aim is to serve people who until now had to cross the Canadian border or travel 70 miles to the nearest parish on the U.S. side. Services are held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month on the campus or, when space is not available, in a private chapel.
There will be worship services on the first and third Sunday of each month beginning Feb. 5. Parking is available in lots 17 and 25. All are welcome to experience this ancient yet contemporary Christian form of worship.
