St. Innocent Orthodox Church
Redford, MI - Moscow Patriarchate

  

Thought for the Month:

We are celebrating the feast of the cross

which drove away darkness and brought in the light.

As we keep this feast, we are lifted up with the crucified

Christ, leaving behind us earth and sin so that we may gain

the things above.  So great and outstanding a possession is

the cross that whoever wins it has won a treasure.

Rightly could I call this treasure the fairest of all fair things

and the costliest, in fact as well as in name for on it and

through it, and for its sake, the riches of salvation

that had been lost were restored to us.

Andrew of Crete

 

Welcome to the St. Innnocent Orthodox Church Website

We are deeply committed to being obedient to Christ within a world that is dying to live!  

We are a small, new-calendar ("revised Julian") parish under the Moscow Patriarchate. Our parish is located in Redford Township at 23300 W. Chicago (Redford, MI  48239), just East of Telegraph. The parish was established in 1967 as an English-speaking parish, named in honor of St. Innocent, the first Bishop of Irkutsk (an Eastern Siberian city). Today, the parish is comprised of Americans of diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds, incluing numerous converts. The services are celebrated according to the Russian musical and liturgical traditions and are almost entirely in English. We joyfully celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2017!

Typical Weekly Schedule:

Friday Divine Liturgy - 10 AM

A SPECIAL MESSAGE TO OUR  VISITORS: 

  • You are welcome here. Relax, and enjoy your visit. No one is judging you. 
  • We will not do anything to embarrass you, or that will make you uncomfortable. 
  • Our children worship with us. If you have young children, they are welcome here, too. If you need to step out for a minute for any reason, you are not disturbing us. We expect children to be raised in the Church and to accomplish that, they have to be IN THE CHURCH.
  • If you are an Orthodox Christian, and you have prepared yourself to receive Holy Communion according to your Spiritual Father’s direction, be sure to introduce yourself to a priest before the service. Once you have informed the priest of your status, you are welcome to approach the chalice.

We are part of the worldwide Orthodox Church – the oldest Christian Church in the world. We welcome you to pray with us and grow with us, by the power of God's infinite mercy and love. You are warmly invited to "come and see."
