The Story

We need your help in order to raise funds to purchase a Church building! 

St Joseph's is the only Russian Orthodox church in our area. We have worshiped in rented spaces for a number of years.  At one time we were in a church building, though it did not belong to us and due to zoning issues we had to vacate the building.  For the past 5 years we have been worshiping in a small rented space in Virginia Beach.  We pray that soon, with your generosity,  we can be in our own Church building.

St Joseph of Optina Orthodox Church is a mission church of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR); a foxhole in His Kingdom!  We are seeking donations from individuals around the world to help us build our church. 

We are a strong family of believers who care about spreading the Gospel and our Orthodox Faith to our community; our friends and neighbors.  To assist us in the spreading of the love of Christ and His Gospel, we are praying for God to open the doors of a new Church building for us.   And we are asking for your assistance.

St Joseph of Optina Orthodox Church would like to purchase a building in our area in order to build the Kingdom of God and serve our Orthodox Brothers and Sisters in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.  We have a couple of building we are looking at, we just need a miracle.  One that your can help with, as we grow His Kingdom.

Our Dear brothers and sisters!  Please help us to build the Church!  Without the Church there is no salvation!

Well we are in mid-October and continuing our prayers toward our new Church Home.  One of the buildings we are looking at is not yet available for us to take a look at the inside.  It is in an excellent location just will need some tender loving care as well as a miracle from all of you.  We are the only Russian Orthodox Church in our geographical area, help us share the Good News to the community and surrounding area by praying for us and helping us financially.  Our parish is growing little by little; our people are faithful to God; we know He will bless us and all of you who will stand with us.  Thank you to those who have already contributed and may God bless the ones who will in the near future.  St Joseph of Optina pray to God for us!
