Welcome to the St. John The Baptist Orthodox Church website.
This introduction is to acquaint you with our church. We are located in the
rural town of Alpha, NJ close to the Delaware River and within easy access from
many communities, as well as highway Routes 78, 22, 57 and county Route 519.
Some of our church brothers and sisters reside nearby in Pennsylvania while
others are from various towns of Warren or Hunterdon County, NJ. There is a
wide cultural diversity in our community and a very sharing and friendly
Church services are in English; however, our Parish Rector,
Very Reverend Father Bohdan Ostash, is from the Ukraine and also speaks
Ukrainian, Russian, and Polish. Depending on Feast Days, there are services
occasionally held during the week. There are many opportunities available to
worship or serve God such as attending service, singing in choir, reading, or
being altar server. We welcome you to come join us.
After Sunday liturgy we meet for fellowship downstairs. This
presents an opportunity to meet others, or participate in groups. Our groups
consist of the “Senior ‘O’ Club”, and “St. Margaret’s Sisterhood”, both formed
to bring people to work together on projects for church or charitable causes.
Additionally, Sunday school lessons are provided for the children at this hour
