We extend a prayerful and sincere welcome to all visitors. St. Herman of Alaska Orthodox Church is a growing and vibrant community. Our parishioners come from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds. All of our services are in English.

Our parish was founded in May 2004, and we have been at our current location at the historic Clifton Chapel since 2005.

Whether you are an Orthodox Christian looking for a parish home, someone interested in Orthodoxy or just visiting the area, we hope that you enjoy your time worshiping with our community.

You are cordially invited to join us for refreshments in our Fellowship Hall after Divine Liturgy.

“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners,
 but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
 Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,
 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”   - Eph. 2: 19-22
