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.

Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:

Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
