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.

The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.

The north and the south thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.

Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.

Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.

Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance.

In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.

For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.
