In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1). I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6) For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
We are a community of Romanian people who settled in the Hazleton area and established St. Joseph's Church (former known as Palm Sunday) in 1992. The church patron is St. Joseph of Maramures. Our church is under the jurisdiction of the Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of North America (ROEA), His Eminence Archbishop Nathaniel Popp (OCA). We are open to any and all people who seek to embrace what has been called the "Ark of Salvation": the Holy Orthodox Church.
Our doors are always open. Please join us for our Sunday Divine Liturgy at 9:30 am and Coffee Hour.
