Welcome to St. Ephraim Orthodox Church!
Welcome to our website! We are a community of Orthodox Christian faithful located at the crossroads of IH-10 and Loop 410 in north-central San Antonio, TX. Our parish has been described as very friendly, warm and welcoming. We are a diverse people representing many cultures with our spiritual home in the Ancient Patriarchate of Antioch in present day Damascus, Syria. As a community we are united by a deep desire to live our Orthodox faith and grow to our fullness in Christ.
Our parish is active with weekly liturgical services, a weekly Sunday School for school age children during the school year, a Women’s organization (St. Ephraim’s Women’s Society) known as SEWS, a Men’s group (The Brotherhood of St. Alexander of Comana), a Chanter & Choir Ministry, Altar Servers, Parish Council Ministry, as well as, other service/mission projects which are done for the broader community. We invite you to come and worship with us. We host a fellowship coffee hour in our parish house each Sunday following Divine Liturgy and a monthly pot-luck luncheon or men’s BBQ on the first Sunday of each month. All are invited and we encourage you to come see what Orthodox Christianity is all about.
