Orthodoxy in America
Hieromonk SERAPHIM (Rose)
We have gathered here today* to venerate St. Herman, first saint of the American land, first Orthodox missionary to America, bringer of Orthodox Christianity to the New World. This feast gives us an opportunity to look at the Orthodoxy he brought: what has happened to it since his time, where it stands in this country today, what are the hopes for it and for us, who are today's Orthodox Christians in the years ahead, nearly two hundred years after the seeds of the true faith were planted here.
