Group Description

We are Orthodox Christians. Through St. Peter who founded our ancestral church in Antioch -- where Jesus' followers were first called "Christians" -- our bishops and presbyters, and we, are in direct historical continuity with the ancient Christian church of Antioch, as described in the Acts of the Apostles.

A deeply grounded life in this world which nevertheless transcends and transforms its flaws is available through an encounter with and a better life in Jesus, the chosen one of God. This was the Good News proclaimed by Jesus' friends, who went on to sacrifice their lives to enable others down through history to extend this invitation to us, now. This is the same Good News -- unchanged through 2000 years -- which we experience and enjoy and share in our life today.

Our members are located in the Antelope Valley of Southern California. Our priests are the Rev. Fr. James I. Francis Gregory Colburn, and the Rev. Fr. Ephrem Adde. Our apostolic father is His Eminence Archbishop Eugene Mor Clemis Kaplan, Patriarchal Vicar of the Western USA for the Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch, led by His Holiness, Patriarch Ignatius Zakka I Iwas.

A loving commitment to each member of our faith community nourishes our common life as a family of faith. As a mission, we strive to live out the unique gifts of our apostolic faith and give to others evidence of its power by the example of our lives.

Please call for directions and visit us soon! Our phone number is (661) 270-0616. Our email address is: StHelenasMission@yahoo.com.
