Our Parish Mission Statement:
We affirm that the ultimate and exclusive goal of every Orthodox Christian is Theosis. The mission of our parish is to reach out in love to all faithful members, as well as to the unchurched Orthodox in our community, and to everyone interested in Orthodoxy. We do this to help facilitate spiritual growth while intenlty focusing on the four pillars of Orthodox Christianity: Leitourgia (worship), Martyria (witness), Koinonia (fellowship) and Diakonia (service).
Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church has been active in Reading, PA since 1914. We are a part of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. The roots of our Faith are found in Jesus Christ and His Apostles. The bishops, priests, and deacons of the Orthodox Christian Church maintain a direct, unbroken, apostolic line from Jesus Christ to present day through their ordination by the laying on of hands (Acts. 6:6).
We welcome everyone to come and worship with us in the morning Matins (Orthros) Service and Divine Liturgy held on Sundays. Our services are conducted in both English and Greek and our service books are printed in both languages. Join us and hear the Good News!
