The Very Reverend Igumen Joseph
We are pleased to welcome everyone to worship with us and offer their sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving to Almighty God, the Most-holy Trinity; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Eastern Orthodox Christians of other parishes and canonical jurisdictions in communion with the Orthodox Church in America are invited to present themselves at the Holy Chalice to receive the Most-holy Body and Precious Blood of our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ. Those who wish to partake of the Holy Gifts should be prepared for this awesome and life-giving Holy Mystery through regular reception of Holy Communion, Holy Confession, prayer, and fasting as prescribed by our Holy Church.
The Orthodox Christian Church of the Holy Transfiguration is located at 35 Sickletown Road, Pearl River, (Rockland County) New York, about 20 miles northwest of New York City.
The church and parish hall are wheelchair accessible (please call ahead); the restrooms are not.
