Welcome to St. John's Eastern Orthodox Church! We are a small, humble parish nestled in beautiful Amarillo, Texas. We gladly welcome all newcomers and invite you to experience the timeless traditions and services of the ancient Orthodox Christian Faith. Please check our service schedule for current times and dates of liturgical services. We typically have a priest on a bi-weekly basis. When a priest is not here, we invite you to attend our Typika service followed by a Bible Study in our community hall. 

Please join us in prayer as we ask the Lord to bless us with a full-time priest:

O Lord Jesus Christ, enkindle the hearts of all Thy priests with the fire of zealous love for Thee, that they may ever seek Thy glory; Give them strength that they may labor unceasingly in Thine earthly vineyard for the salvation of our souls and the glory of Thine All-Honorable and Majestic Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
