We are an Orthodox Christian community of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, under the care of Bishop Thomas of Charleston, Oakland, and the Mid-Atlantic.
Our community at St. Anthony's extends a heartfelt invitation to all Orthodox Christians and to all interested visitors to join us in worship and fellowship. (For driving directions, click here!). And until we meet face to face, follow us on Facebook at facebook.com/orthodoxbutler , on this website, and at https://orthodoxoutreachusa.org.
God bless you and direct your steps!
