INTRODUCTION- ST. John The Baptist Orthodox Church

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 atmosphere.

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 as well.

This is a general overview of St. John The Baptist Orthodox Church in Alpha, NJ. Please check the rest of our site for specifics. We hope to see you soon.

May God Bless you and keep you in His care.
