St. Michael's Church
Orthodox Church in America
Jermyn, Pennsylvania
Welcome to Our Parish!

You are cordially invited to visit St. Michael's Orthodox Church in Jermyn. Our church is a parish of the Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA). We warmly welcome all who are in search of a church that is in unchanging continuity with the Church of the Apostles and where they may find the purity of the Apostolic Faith.

If you haven't heard of the Orthodox Church: The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman. It is not non-denominational, it is pre-denominational. It has been believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for. It is the Faith that has established the universe!

Come and worship with us and with the Saints of all ages!

St. Michael’s Orthodox Church in Jermyn, Pennsylvania, received a Gratitude Letter from the House of Mercy (Dim Miloserdia) for reaching out during Great Lent to help the suffering refugees in Ukraine. Needed items were donated and sent in time for Pascha, and funds were wired to benefit displaced Ukrainian orphans.

Thank you for all the support everyone has given during the COVID -19 Virus Pandemic. When you are not in Church for the services, please send in your weekly envelopes on a timely basis or please use the above donation button. Your donations are sincerely appreciated, as we have routine expenses that must be met. May God protect you during this difficult time.

More Information >

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Daily Readings >

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
