Welcome to St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church. We are a parish of the American Carpatho-Russian Diocese in the USA. Our bishop is, His Eminence, Metropolitan Gregory of Nysaa. Our diocese is under the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.
Founded in 1919, our parish is celebrating its 100th Anniversary this year.
We are a friendly and welcoming community of believers who worship our Lord, Jesus Christ, united in the Holy Spirit, to the glory of God the Father.
We are a sacramental community centered on the Holy Eucharist.
We are a praying community, for each other and for the world.
We are a fellowship community, enjoying each other's company in Christian love and work.
We are a life-long learning community knowing that we can discover more, every day about our life in Christ.
We are a multi-ethnic, multi-racial parish welcoming everyone seeking the fullness of the Christian Faith.
We are a sacrifical giving community, offering our gifts of time, talent and treasure for the building up of the Body of Christ here in East Pittsburgh, our diocese and the Orthodox world.
We are a giving parish to others in need by collecting funds and other gifts regularly so that we can help the least of the brethren in our area.
You are invited and most welcome to be part of our community of faith. Come and see!
