St. Sava Orthodox Church

Christ is in our midst!


I hope this message finds you all well and that the Lenten season is bringing you great spiritual benefit. Here recently, the concern for public health in light of COVID-19 (the coronavirus) has prompted responses from all organizations which serve the public. We in the Orthodox Church in America in the Diocese of the South have received a directive from our hierarch His Eminence, Archbishop Alexander, which I ask each of you to read below. For the sake of slowing the spread of the virus so that our hospitals and health care institutions do not become overwhelmed, he asks that the faithful remain home through Sunday, March 29. There will be no classes, gatherings, or special events during this time. St. Sava Orthodox Church will live stream all services for viewing on our Facebook page, which we encourage the faithful to watch. All confessions will be by appointment only. Please feel free to contact me at or at (972)612-3881.


In Christ,


Priest Photius Avant, Rector
