Where is the nearest Church to me?
[in North America]
Start by checking a Directory that shows the Royal Path Churches in North America.
If you happen to live within a day's drive from a parish, then you are one of the few. The true church today has somewhat of a "catacomb" existence. And as time goes on, as we progress towards the one-world church of antichrist, the church will go deeper and deeper into the "catacombs". Now is the time to start adjusting ourselves to this.
The question for many of us today is how do we begin a fruitful Orthodox life being so far away from a parish?
How to begin is going to depend on circumstances. In North America Fr. Gregory Williams is the Director of Missions. I suggest making contact with him. He may know of others in your area who are not listed in the directory.
