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. Father Thomas O'Neil Lynch has been ministering to us by traveling from Pueblo, CO on a bi-weekly basis. When Fr. Tom is not here we invite you to attend our Typika service followed by a Bible Study in our community hall.
