Welcome to Our Parish!

We extend a warm welcome to our new parishioners, as well as to visitors in the Hampton Roads area. If you are new to the community, seeking a Church home, or planning to visit us in the future, please email Dianne Sun at dsungreek@hotmail.com and provide your name, address, and phone number so that we may contact you. We invite you to attend our Divine Liturgy on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am. The Divine Liturgy is conducted in both English and Greek and Liturgy books are located in each pew for you to follow along. At the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy you are welcome to join us for fellowship at our "coffee hour" in the Hellenic Center next door to the Church. You can view a virtual tour of our Church here.

Our Mission

Our mission at Saints Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church in Newport News, Virginia is to keep, practice, and proclaim the Orthodox Christian Faith. The work and ministry of our Parish will include proclaiming the Gospel, sanctifying the faithful through God's grace in worship, the Divine Liturgy and the Sacraments, and enhancing their spiritual life. We will fulfill the great commission of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by inviting others into the Church through Baptism and/or Chrismation, educating them in the Orthodox Faith through the establishment of programs, schools and philanthropic activities, and implementing Christian ministries.
