O Trinity of blessèd light, O Unity of princely might, The fiery sun now goes his way; Shed Thou within our hearts a ray.
To Thee our morning song of praise, To Thee our evening prayer we raise; O grant us with Thy saints on high To praise Thee through eternity.
All laud to God the Father be, All praise, eternal Son, to Thee, All glory, as is ever meet, To God the holy Paraclete.
Join us for Matins and Holy Mass on Sundays beginning at 9:00am. 6588 Balls Mill Road, Bealeton VA 22721

St. Patrick Community Calendar

Praise Be To Jesus Christ Our One True God!

Before denominations and divisions, before we lost our way in a sea of relativism, before we lost the answers to life’s most difficult questions, there was the Faith, the Apostles, and the Undivided Church. The Church you are looking for has never gone away but is thriving just as Jesus promised. If you are looking for the fullness of Scriptural and Apostolic Christianity, if you are thirsting for Truth, we encourage you to investigate the Orthodox Church.

There is a loving community of faith here to help you along the way. Please contact us with any questions. And most importantly we would be honored by your visit and invite you to join us in worship to our Glorious Savior Jesus Christ!

Your servant in Christ,
Father Patrick Cardine
