About St Dimitrie

Thank you for visiting the website of St. Dimitrie Romanian 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.
