"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7
Saint Philip Greek Orthodox Church
Saint Philip Church, a parish of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston, is the beloved spiritual home of nearly 300 Orthodox Christian families in the greater Nashua area. Since 1971, our parish family has been known for its welcoming outlook, vibrant ministries and rich liturgical life. We trace our spiritual roots to the Apostles themselves, the friends of Christ, and we recognize an unbroken chain of Christian ministry and fellowship from their time to our own. 2000 years young, our faith is ancient yet highly relevant, speaking to God's people right here, right now.
The focal point of our life at Saint Philip is the Divine Liturgy. Within this timeless and truly beautiful service, we commune with Christ, seek growth and healing, and give thanks for our many blessings. Our ongoing challenge is then to live "the Liturgy after the Liturgy"—to act upon the teachings of the Gospel and the transforming experience of worship. We are called, ultimately, to give hands and feet to our faith, bringing life and substance to what we profess.
We do these things together as a parish family. In fact, the ancient term for "church" is ekklesia, the "gathering of the faithful." So the true Church is not in mortar, stone or steel, but in the hearts of the people who gather in Christ's name. And at Saint Philip, the long-time parishioner, new member and spiritual "seeker" alike will be warmed by the spirit of hospitality and genuine friendship found among God's people. On Sundays and throughout the week, our campus teems with the sound of friends chatting, children playing and warm welcomes. Here, whether in good or difficult times, we rejoice in our friendships and find support in the kind eyes of those who truly care.
In addition to our full docket of educational and fellowship programs for adults, Saint Philip offers a meaningful cycle of youth and young adult ministries. From our bustling Sunday School to our energetic teen GOYA Ministry, our children develop a personal relationship with Christ while building healthy friendships that we hope and pray will last a lifetime.
We invite you to join us soon for Sunday worship — guests and visitors are always welcome at the Divine Liturgy.
