Church in France?
« on: May 17, 2011, 07:16:15 AM »
I will soon be visiting my grandmother in France, in the Bouche-Du-Rhone area of Provence. I have spent a considerable amount of my life there, but never Orthodox, and thus have no idea where the nearest church might be. Does anyone know of one near any of the following cities: St-Remy de Provence, Arles, Nimes, Avignon?
After that, there's Aix-en-provence and Marseille, which are farther, but almost certain to have churches, I would guess..

Or, is there something like the church locator on orthodoxyinamerica.org, but for Western Europe?

Language is not an issue, as I speak French, and am obviously OK with Slavonic, and obviously, even if it were in some other tongue, I'd be happy to go.
Thanks!
Jim
It is not the task of Christianity to provide easy answers to every question, but to make us progressively aware of a mystery. God is not so much the object of our knowledge as the cause of our wonder.

Hello Jim

You can also look on

A pan-jurisdictional list is here (although I do not know how up to date it is)

I just saw these replies, wasn't notifying me for some reason. Thanks so much, I'm sure we'll find somewhere!

I've also not been receiving notifications recently.

Hope you enjoy your time in France.
