Orthodox Church Durango

If you are interested in the Orthodox Church and live in Cortez, Pagosa Springs, Farmington, or anywhere in Southwest Colorado, please contact us. . We are persons from Greek, Russian, Syrian and other traditionally Orthodox countries. We are “convert” as well, as the Orthodox Church has become “home” to literally tens of thousands of Americans who have discovered the great richness and stability of Orthodox Christian worship, doctrine, spirituality, and life.
