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!

Come, worship with us!

Our regular weekly services are as follows:

Saturdays: Vespers, 6:30 pm
Sundays: Matins, 9:15 am; Divine Liturgy, 10:00 am

For feasts that fall on a weekday, we usually meet at 6:30pm on the eve of the feast to celebrate Vesperal Liturgy.

WHY BOTHER TO COME TO CHURCH ON SUNDAYS?

Fellowship after Sunday Liturgy

We usually break bread together on Sundays, following Divine Liturgy. It is a good way for the community to reconnect at the end of a week, to get to know each other better, to strengthen the bonds of existing friendship, and to meet new people. 

To be sure we have enough, but not too much, food each week, we all decided to try coordinating among those who would like to contribute a little or a lot to our joyous Sunday meals.
