General Information

Thank you for visiting the website of St. Dimitrie Orthodox Church in Easton, Connecticut. This site provides a glimpse into our parish, our Faith and our community.  We hope these announcements, updates, photographs and history will be interesting and enjoyable.
Our family invites you to come participate in the life of our parish and worship with us. 
Our doors and arms are open to you and we pray you find a home with us.

We are an Orthodox Christian Church under the auspices and ecclesiastical jurisdiction of the Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of America, Orthodox Church of America. The Presiding Hierarch of our Diocese is His Eminence Archbishop Nathaniel (Popp).

We invite you to learn about our Orthodox Christian faith, find out what's happening in our community and join us in worship!

We seek to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ by maintaining the faith delivered to the apostles and handed down throughout the ages, worshiping together as a community of love, fellowship, and shared spiritual growth, and reaching out through ministry to serve the needs of those around us.

We invite you to learn more about our faith, our ministry, and our community.

Sunday School Classes Begin
Sunday, October 4,
10:30 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.

Please note: This is a slight change from prior years when we were striving to begin at 10:15 a.m. Students attending the second service will be escorted upstairs to church to sit with their families.

Please help your child to be on time and attend as often as possible. Consistency and continuity are extremely important for your child during these years. We prepare carefully each week to begin meaningful teaching from the very beginning of the class, and your child's arrival on time helps the whole class to get the most out of the session. While we are always happy to welcome the children to class, arriving late means we have to stop, get settled and often start over again which is unfair to the children who have arrived on time.

We know mornings are tough and we appreciate your best efforts to get here on time!

Movie: In the Name of God: rated NR, 2014

Years of bouncing from one foster care home to another have left Mason Jones (Patrick Davis) feeling unwanted and unloved. When the 17-year-old moves in with the Lewis family (Pete Freeland & Robyn Lively), they seem just like all of his previous foster parents: middle-aged, one child, and called by God to his change his life. However, unlike the others, the Lewis family is determined to keep Mason around, despite the initial wishes of their son, Nate, who views taking Mason into their home as an attempt to replace their deceased son and brother, Jack. With zero chances left and no other options than being locked up in juvenile detention, Mason starts attending a court mandated support group. There, he finds a surprise ally in the pastor’s daughter, Lacey (Jeannette Grout), and learns important life lessons about humility, respect, and fresh starts.
