Title: Church in Paris
Post by: Michaelj on September 29, 2004, 06:39:45 AM
Firstly hello again. I am back from a 2 month vacation on the Portuguese coast (Algarve) nice and tanned :)

I am going to go to Paris for Christmas (7th) and would like to know the addresses for the Russian Orthodox Churches there. I know there are MP and ROCOR churches. I don't care which I go to, though I do want the liturgy in Slavonic (don't speak French) and the bigger the church the better: I love a big Nativity service.

Any suggestions?

Hi Michaelj,
Here are some places to go:
Church of Christ's Resurrection
MEUDON 92190
This is a small church right outside of Paris.  I went there when I was in Paris, but then the priest was Fr. Mihail Artsimovich, and it was a thriving parish.  I have heard that since his death, the parish is not so good now.  The deacon, Fr. Andrei, is very nice, but I do not know about the current priest.  
There is another church whose under some Greek group near the Arc de Triumph... I have not been in it, but my sister who lived in Paris for a year would go there on occasion.   I believe it's on Rue d'Rue, or something like that.

Orthodox Church
26, rue de Sartrouville
95240, PARIS
01 39 78 71 54
I have no idea who these people are, I just found the listing on Google.

22 Avenue Kleber, 75116, Paris, France
Telephone: +33 145 01 83 56 Fax: + 33 145 01 21 15
This is info for the Antiochian diocese.

I also know there is a MP parish in Vanve, but I've looked & looked but can't find a listing for it.
