St. Basil's ... A Community of Christians                          

The bishop, clergy and laity of St. Basil's Cathedral (HOCAJ) invite you to stop by and enjoy the fellowship of worship with others on the same spiritual pilgramage as you.

As part of the body of Christ, we place our faith and trust in the original spirtual truths of the ancient Apostolic faith of Orthodox Christendom as professed in the Nicene Creed.  Accepting Holy Scripture as the inspired Word of the Triune Godhead of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

We believe that preserving the ancient ancestoral roots of the Christian faith and it's traditions to be essential for the spiritual well being of all Christians, the salvation of our Nation and the hope for those who have yet to discover the promise of Christ's love and forgiveness in their lives.

The clergy of St. Basil's would welcome an opportunity to share with you any information concerning the unconditional love of Christ, the ancient Apostolic Faith of Orthodox Christendom or the American Apostolate of Western Rite Orthodoxy and its sacraments.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our web site.  May the Peace of God which passes all understanding be with you now and unto all ages of ages, Amen.

Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:

To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;

Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;

Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;

Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:

To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;

Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.

For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.

None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.

That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.

For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.

But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.
