About Our Mission
Saint Dymphna Orthodox Christian Church promotes inclusive worship, selflessly serving all of God’s children from all walks of life, in all avenues of ministry, and to enjoy together the fullness of Divine Love. We are a Christian community that proclaims the gifts of the Holy Spirit by living, sharing, and loving the Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ.
As a monastic church, we intend to inspire the people we serve by carrying out the works of the Church and offering solace to those in need of love the most.
Vespers: 7:00 P.M.
Confession: 5:30 P.M.
Divine Liturgy: 6:00 P.M.
The Katholikon (Monastery Church) of Saint Dymphna was initially formed as an Eastern Orthodox Church with an autonomous Orthodox jurisdiction, and incorporated as a religious nonprofit in Washington State in October 2018, with the inaugural Great Vespers on Holy Saturday of the same year. Over the years, we have modified in distinction while maintaining its same identity and function as we transitioned to a Monastic supported Church body.
Our journey as a parish will always be Christ-centered and, ultimately, to serve those that Christ has instructed us to serve; the poor, the infirm, the broken-hearted, the meek, the merciful, those that are just like us. As a parish, we intend to inspire the people we serve by carrying out the works of the Church and offering solace to those in need of love the most. We strive to be a source of equality and social justice-minded Christianity for all of God’s children—created in their likeness. We are adherents of the seven Ecumenical Councils, where reason of inclusiveness and loving they neighbor prevails.
Our church is under the Omophorion of the His Beatitude, the Most Reverend Metropolitan JOHN GREGORY - Eparch of the Connexion of Saint John Chrysostom. We welcome all of God's beloveds in our worship and to experience the sacraments as one Body of Christ.
Today, Saint Dymphna's continues as a proto-orthodox mission serving the Valley, and serves as the Monastery Church for the Orthodox Community of Saint Brigid.
