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.

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
