A Brief Introduction to Four Evangelists Orthodox Church
Thank you for inquiring about our church! We are an Eastern Orthodox Church serving Bel Air, Maryland and the greater Harford County area. Our hope is that Four Evangelists Orthodox Church will be a house of prayer for all people to meet, know, and worship our Savior Jesus Christ as he taught us, following the liturgical and spiritual practices as handed down through the Orthodox tradition.
Our church is made up of families from many different backgrounds — Ukrainian, Russian, Greek, English, etc. Some of our parishioners are converts to the Orthodox faith, others come from Orthodox families and grew up in the Faith. Our church family is also made up of all different types of people — children, singles, families, young and old. Our priest and parish pastor is Fr. Gregory Czumak.
Our patrons and namesake of our church are the Holy Four Evangelists, Sts. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, authors of the four gospel books of the New Testament.
As an Orthodox parish, we are a mission church of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA and are under the arch-pastoral care of the Ecumenical Patriarch, Bartholomew of Constantinople. Our Diocesan Bishop is Metropolitan Antony.
