Saints Theodore Orthodox Church

Buffalo, New York
Sts Theodore Russian Orthodox Church - Williamsville, New York

Welcome to Our Parish!


While we are only a small parish in Western New York, we are part of the broader Russian Orthodox Church, the largest Orthodox body in the world. We are also part of the global Eastern Orthodox Church which includes national churches in traditionally Orthodox countries like Russia, Greece, Romania, Serbia, Cyprus, and the Middle East, but has also spread throughout all the world.  There are over 250 million Eastern Orthodox Christians in the world today and over 1 million in the United States. 

While many of our congregants were brought up in the Orthodox Church, many have journeyed to Orthodoxy either from other Christian faith traditions or from non-Christian spiritual traditions. Whether you are “on a journey” or just want to visit a local Orthodox church, you will be welcome at Sts Theodore. We are always happy to have others join us for prayer to and worship of the One God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We hope you will find our site informative and edifying. We invite you to join us for one of our liturgical services which preserve the worshipping tradition of apostolic Christianity and grant those who participate in them an experience of heaven on earth. We have an All-Night Vigil service every Saturday at 5:00 p.m. and Divine Liturgy every Sunday morning beginning at 9:00 a.m. Lunch is served after Liturgy and all are welcome.

We looking forward to meeting you. May the Lord bless you.
