Thank you for visiting our website.  Saint Elias Orthodox Church in New Castle, PA is a pan-Orthodox church with people from various walks of life.  We have a vibrant and active community, with several informative classes, both for children and adults. 

We are a typical Antiochian Orthodox church, having been established in 1913, and among other things that means that food is a central part of the fabric of our community.  Under normal conditions, we bake Syrian bread most every Tuesday during the year (unfortunately, the COVID-19 epidemic has shut this down for the forseeable future).  Additionally, once we can gather safely, we get together to make meat pies, spinach pies, or kibbee several times a year.  We also have an Middle-Eastern food festival, which is a great opportunity to welcome the greater New Castle community to our church to enjoy great food and customary hospitality.

But the greatness in the Saint Elias community lies in its care and concern for others.  Christ calls us to love our neighbors as ourselves: the community of Saint Elias strives to faithfully honor that calling.

Please accept this invitation to visit our website and contact us if you have any questions.  We gather for the Divine Liturgy every Sunday at 10:00 AM which you can see on our YouTube channel at the present time.  If you are curious, please contact us and we would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
