Russian Orthodox Church
PARISH OF ST. XENIA OF PETERSBURG
In 2001, with the blessing of the Archbishop of San Francisco and Western America, the parish, with great joy, was named after one of the most respected Russian woman saints, St, Xenia of Petersburg. She is the patroness of hearth and family happiness, peace and prosperity. Our priest is Father Paul Iwaszewicz.
We generally meet every first and third Sunday of the month and the preceding Saturday at the Veteran's Hall (2290 Willow Pass Road, Concord, CA 94522-0611) to pray. Check the calendar for the specific schedule. Our services are primarily in Church Slavonic with some English. Our upcoming schedule is as follows:
On November 6th Father Pavel had knee surgery therefore sometimes he won’t be able to serve Liturgy. Please check the website for the schedule. We request your prayers for our priest.
Everyone is invited to a sisterhood lunch after liturgy.
