Our church is dedicated to All Saints of North America: those individuals who lived among us on this continent who have been recognized by our Church and its faithful as men of great holiness and faith. Some of them were the first to bring the Holy Orthodox Christian Faith to the Americas, and some gave their lives in martyrdom for their faith and their God. We invite you to learn more about these holy ones.

Today the choir of the saints who pleased God in the lands of America doth stand before us in church and invisibly doth pray for us to God. With them the angels glorify Him, and all the saints of the Church of Christ keep festival with them; and they all pray together for us to the eternal God.
