Jurisdictional Affiliation

Saints Simon and Jude Church is an English speaking parish
We follow the Julian Church Calendar.

Here we cannot boast of great numbers, neither of renown, nor of wealth, nor of learning  –  all that is valued in this world. We are strong here only in one thing  —  in possessing the true Orthodox faith and that not of yourselves; it is a gift of God (Eph. 2:8), and we should ask the Lord for the increase of this gift. Let them stand fast in Thy Holy Church in the Orthodox Faith.

St. Tikhon {1865-1925), Patriarch of Moscow, speaking on the American Orthodox situation.
