Response to COVID-19:

In obedience to His Eminence Archbishop Nathaniel, we will not provide any public services on-site throughout the month of March. Currently we are providing livestream options for services that can be prayed remotely. We are working on assembling resources to continue or develop prayer life in the home, which, with God's help, will greatly enrich our lives once services are able to continue. Members are encouraged to visit Realm, our in-house communications platform, for more opportunities, access and updates. 

Read the Episcopal Directive Concerning the Coronavirus

Consecrated in 1988, Protection of the Holy Mother of God Orthodox Church (St. Mary), is a community of the Orthodox Church in America, an English-language parish of the Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of America, that meets in Falls Church, VA. Our congregation is a mix of cradle, convert, and "re-vert" worshippers, coming from all different walks of life and backgrounds. In other words, we are a great American "melting pot" of Orthodoxy in the heart of the Nation's Capital!
