St. Symeon Orthodox Church is a parish of the Orthodox Church in America, Diocese of the South, composed primarily of American converts to Orthodoxy, along with Romanians, Russians, Serbs and Bulgarians. The community is committed to keeping the Faith as transmitted by the Apostles to the first Fathers of the Church and preserved in the Holy Orthodox Church. There are links on this site for further information on Orthodoxy. Visitors are always welcome at St. Symeon’s! Many of us started our journey as “visitors”. We say to all, "Come and see!” Come and see and experience the unchanged Christian Faith – the Orthodox Church!
"Cheerfulness consists in not regarding things as our own, but as entrusted to us by God for the benefit of our fellow-servants. It consists in scattering them abroad generously with joy and magnanimity, not reluctantly or under compulsion."
St. Symeon the New Theologian (from The Discourses)
"Grace is not merely faith, but also active prayer. For the latter shows in practice true faith, made living by Jesus, for it comes from the Spirit through love. And so faith is dead and lifeless in a man who does not see it active in himself. More than that - a man has no right to be called faithful, if his faith is a bare word and if he has not in him a faith made active by love and the Spirit. Thus faith must be made evident by progress in works, or it must act in the light and shine in works, as the divine Apostle says: 'Show me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works (James 2:18)."
St. Gregory of Sinai
