Welcome to the highest elevation Greek Orthodox parish in North America!

"Save, O Lord Your people, and bless Your inheritance; grant victory to the faithful against the adversaries of the Faith, and protect Your people by the power of Your Cross!" - Apolytikion of the Holy Cross

I welcome you to the website of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church of Flagstaff, the highest elevation Greek Orthodox parish in the Americas. We are a parish of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, an eparchy of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, under the omophorion of His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos of San Francisco. We strictly follow the typikon, or cycle of services and liturgical practices, of the Great Church of Christ in Constantinople, founded by the Holy Apostle Andrew, the First-called Follower of Christ.

Although the roots of our holy Archdiocese and of our parish are Hellenic, we are the Church of Christ for ALL peoples, at ALL times, and in ALL places. Our services are conducted in English, with occasional hymns and prayers in the languages of our forefathers. We have Greek, Romanian, Celtic, Slavic, German, Arabic, Native American, Hispanic and other ancestries, but we are all Americans.

I hope this website can be a good source of information for you, but my fervent prayer is to see you in our holy church for Divine Worship.

God bless you!

+Father Andreas
