Welcome to the Saint Barbara Greek Orthodox Church Website
"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7
Dear Friends and Supporters of Saint Barbara,
It is with great pride that we welcome you to Saint Barbara's website. Our goal is to make your log in with us friendly and personal, just like being one of the family. Saint Barbara, located in the heart of Chinatown, has been servicing the spiritual needs of the Orthodox Christians since the mid 1920's. We are continuing to do so up to this present day. We are the beautiful building you see when you exit east on the Manhattan Bridge. Since September 11th we are the only Greek Orthodox Church on the lower east side. Our sister church, Saint Nicholas on Cedar Street was lost on that tragic day.
Saint Barbara throughout history has been the patron saint of artillerymen and firemen. She is also the protector against sudden death. True to her example, our community became a National Orthodox Relief center from that day forward.
This website was designed to let you know that you have a family at Saint Barbara. Please visit us, we are easily accessible by public transportation and are easy to get to by car as well. (See our link for directions) May our Lord bless you abundantly with all good things.
With great appreciation of your support,
The Parish Council of Saint Barbara
