The Orthodox Church in America traces its origins to the arrival in Kodiak, Alaska of eight Orthodox missionaries from the Valaamo Monastery in the northern Karelia region of Russia in 1794.

general information on the Orthodox Faith, questions and answers about Orthodoxy, the Orthodox Churches and more.

One easy and very rewarding way even for very busy people to incorporate Bible reading into their day is to read the selections appointed for each day's services.

daily prayer and also for many specific circumstances.
