Western Rite parish, Washington, DC

Hey all,

I'm thinking of visiting St. Gregory the Great (Western Rite) Orthodox parish in DC (I'm a DC resident...Washingtonion(?)). Anyone been there/have any experience there?

Peace to all. :)

Didn't know the capital had a WRO. Good!
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

I visited this parish several years ago, before they bought their present temple. I'm sure they would be happy to have you, or anyone else, join them for a visit.

"Everything in this life passes away, only God remains. Only he is worth struggling towards. We have a choice: to follow the way of this world, of the society that surrounds us,and thereby find ourselves outside of God; or to choose the way of life, to choose God who calls us and for Whom our heart is searching." -- Blessed Seraphim Rose

Yes, I myself visit every semester. I live only about two-and-a-half miles away. I find the church to be a shining example of our Western half. The community is made up of great people, and if you stay afterwards for breakfast, you won't be without fascinating conversation. Fr. Nicholas Alford has been all around the world, and any question that you have for him, I'm confident that he'll be able to answer. I hope that you have just as great an experience there as I did on my first visit.

I attend St. Patrick Orthodox Church (stpatrickorthodox.org), which is another Western Rite parish out in Virginia. I've heard only good things about Fr. Nicholas (including that he makes his own mead!). If you live out in NoVA, we'd love to have you visit St. Patrick's as well!
