Fairfax Orthodox Mission Station
Orthodox Church in America
Fairfax Station, VA


The Fairfax Orthodox Mission Station was established by the Orthodox Church in America's Archdiocese of Washington in October of 2018 to explore the possibility of establishing an Orthodox Church in southwestern Fairfax County, VA.

Our first service, Great Vespers, was held on Saturday, October 20, 2018. It was attended by 34 people and was an extremely joyful event. Since that day, we have continued to grow and expand our work here in Northern Virginia. Great Vespers is held each Saturday evening followed by a potluck meal, fellowship, and Bible study. During Great Lent, we served the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts each Wednesday. 

Due to the great generosity of Fr. James Barkett and St. Mary of Sorrows Catholic Church, we are able to hold the majority of our services at St. Mary's Historic Church located at 11112 Fairfax Station Rd, Fairfax Station, VA.

At the Mission Station, you'll find people of different ethnic backgrounds, converts to Orthodoxy, "cradle" Orthodox, and non-Orthodox alike. As a group, we strive to be an example of God's love and the community of the Holy Spirit in this land.

We invite everyone to "Come and see"!
