 We are welcoming all Orthodox believers to attend our services and to listen to the word of God in our little cozy churchin Virginia Beavh, VA.


Building on the foundations of our original status as an Orthodox mission, Saint Joseph of Optina Russian Orthodox Church continues the traditions of the Russian Orthodox Church from our parish in Virginia. With the blessings of Metropolitan Hilarion of Eastern America and New York and the First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, our parish represents the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia in the Hampton Roads region. 


 Visitors are invited to attend services at our church and to take the first steps into the Orthodox tradition with us. Join us as we continue to grow, we welcome you to join us for the experience of a Divine Liturgy in the Russian Orthodox tradition or to attend any of our scheduled church services or events. As we continue to write the next page in the story of the Saint Joseph of Optina Russian Orthodox Church and the Russian Orthodox Christian community in Hampton Roads, we look forward to sharing our faith in the Lord with you. With our continued determination and sacrifice in the name of the Lord, we pray for the ability to construct the first Russian Orthodox Church in Southeastern Virginia.
