This is the website for St John Orthodox Church. Our parish community is located in Cedar Park, Texas, a rapidly-growing suburb of the state capital, Austin.
We hope that you find the information on this site helpful. If you have questions, please contact us. However, the only way to actually experience the joy and beauty of Orthodox Christianity is to participate in a worship service, so we hope that you’ll take that step as soon as you’re ready.
We look forward to meeting you.
The Triodion, the three week period of preparation leading up to Great Lent, will begin on Sunday, February 17. That means it’s time to start thinking about how we are going to fast, when we will make our confession, how often we will participate in the weekday Lenten services (most weeks, there are services on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings), and which of the Saturdays of Souls we will be attending.
On Saturday, March 16, and Sunday, March 17, we will host our first Open House Weekend for 2019.
This year for St. Patrick's Day we will be hosting the Celtic Games at St. John's in Cedar Park directly after the Liturgy! So come with your kilt or a pair of jeans and t-shirt to change into an get ready to throw heavy objects for sport. The games will include a modified "Caber Toss" (half the size of a normal Caber), "Stone Throw" (a combo of golf and hammer throw), Snake Toss (obviously with rubber snakes) and this year we will also be playing a new game Joe has named "King of the Maze" which involves friendly pushing, shoving, and pulling to take over your opponents territory before he/she does.
