The Butler area is blessed to have no less than three Orthodox parishes: our own Saint Anthony parish (Antiochian Orthodox), Saint Andrew (Orthodox Church in America), and Saints Peter and Paul (Ukrainian Orthodox). Click on the respective links to visit our neighbors and fellow Orthodox.
We are also close to the Monastery of the Transfiguration (Orthodox Church in America) in Ellwood City, the Monastery of the Nativity of the Theotokos (Greek Orthodox) in Saxonburg, and the retreat center at the Antiochian Village (Antiochian Orthodox).
The three Orthodox churches in our area come together in Liturgy a good number of times in a year: on the days of our patron saints--Saint Anthony's hosts the Panorthodox Liturgy the Sunday closest to January 17--and at the beginning of the great fasts of the Orthodox calendar. It is not only a witness to our unity of teaching and worship, but a joy for the three concelebrating priests, and for all the parishioners of our three communities.Click here and here for some video footage of the beautiful service celebrated in 2011, on this first Pan-Orthodox Sunday Liturgy at St. Anthony's.
A good list of resources available through various agencies in the Butler area for people going through rough times. There is information on Food, Help for Renters, Foreclosure Avoidance Counseling, Health Care, Prescription Drug Assistance, etc.
