St. Thomas the Apostle
With the blessing of Metropolitan NICHOLAS of Eastern America & New York
Please be aware there will be NO services at St. Thomas the weekend of Pentacost (June 3-4). Instead, all who are able are encouraged to travel to Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church in Mebane, NC to celebrate Pentecost with our ruling Hierarch, Metropolitan Nicholas.
St. Thomas is a parish of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. We are a small part of the Orthodox Church, presenting ancient Christianity & proclaiming the Gospel message through the tradition of the Russian Church.
All of our services are primarily in English.
Founded in the summer of 2019, St. Thomas is growing.
We are now meeting at our permanent new home:
6151 Tobaccoville Road, Tobaccoville, NC 27050
Glory be to God!
St Thomas Sunday (Antipascha)
"As the disciples were in doubt, the Savior came on the eighth day to where they were gathered and granted them peace, and cried unto Thomas: Come, O Apostle, and feel the palms in which they fastened the nails. O good unbelief of Thomas, which hath led the hearts of the faithful to knowledge! Hence, he cried out with fear: O my Lord and my God, glory be to Thee."
+Sticheron from Lord I have cried Vespers for St. Thomas Sunday
Christ is risen! Indeed He is risen!
The faithful gathered at St Thomas for Holy Week services; in solemn rememberence of Christ’s ultimate sacrifice on the cross, and in jubilation for His triumph over death through the resurrection. This first Pascha at our new Tobaccoville home was a beautiful and sacred experience.
"Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and on those in the tombs bestowing life!"
