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 book that we will be using for the Fall Theological Seminar is now available. It’s called The 21: A Journey into the Land of the Coptic Martyrs. It’s an international best-seller by a German journalist named Martin Mosbach, and it’s about the 21 Egyptians who were martyred in Libya in 2015 by Islamic State terrorists.

Our next Open House Weekend will be on Saturday, October 19, and Sunday, October 20. Our speaker at St Thomas School on October 19 will be Dr. Mark Cherry; Mark is a member of St. Elias and a professor of philosophy and ethics at St. Edwards University. He will be talking at 4pm about the intersection of faith and politics, which is sure to be of interest to lots and lots of folks. Join us for his talk or for one of the services throughout that weekend.
