Hi!

I'm a longtime lurker, and I've learned an awful lot stuff from everyone here.  So, let me first say Thanks to everyone.  I've yet to actually visit a church though.  I'll spare everyone the excuses as they aren't anything you haven't heard before.

I am curious if anyone is familiar with the Orthodox Churches in the St Louis metro area.  I live on the Illinois side, but am not opposed to going to a Missouri church.  Sts Cyril and Methody in Granite City IL is probably the closest to me (about 1/2 hour away).  Thanks in advance for any information you may have.

That Church is historic-it was the first Bulgarian Orthodox Church in the US (although not the first Bulgarians-the Greek Holy Trinity in New Orleans had a priest from Bulgaria long before).

My son might be joining you down there, but on the opposite side of the river (where I have told him perhaps he should stay).  The only parish we visited was All Saints of North America, which was a nice mission parish.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Sts. Cyril and Methody is a wonderful little church and Fr. Andrew is a good priest....I'd say it's worth a visit at the very least  Grin

St. John Chrysostom ROCOR is in House Springs on Gravois Rd.  Father Christopher is a very good man and did a lot to keep me in Orthodoxy my first year.  The Hermitage of the Holy Cross originated there, and that is where I first met the monks.

I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.
