Saint Catherine Eastern Orthodox Church of Hagerstown of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA) is pleased to welcome you to our Website. Saint Catherine is the oldest Orthodox Church serving the Lord in Western Maryland.
We are excited to share that December 2011 marked our 30th Anniversary in Hagerstown, Maryland. For most of the 30 years of our Parish, VRev Fr. Dennis Buck has served as our Priest.
Services are in English, with Greek, Slavonic, and Romanian sprinkled in spontaneously. Our parish is distinguished by the large number of priests sent out from our parish and also the high ratio of children to adults in our congregation.
We are a community of believers who are always happy to see new faces, so bring yours in today and let your voice raise up with ours in a sacrifice of prayer and praise to Him who rose from the dead, trampling down death by Death.
"Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himselt being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple of God."
