Welcome to St. Antony
Whether you are new to Orthodox Christianity or are visiting from another Orthodox parish, we’re glad that you’ve stopped by our website and hope that you’ll come and visit us in person if you haven’t done so already.
Located next to the TU Campus in the heart of Tulsa, St. Antony Antiochian Church in Tulsa is a warm, welcoming Orthodox Christian church, continuing the faith and traditions handed down from Christ, through Apostles and preserved by the Holy Spirit since Pentecost. Our parish is pan-Orthodox and multi-ethnic in composition, embracing the customs of Orthodox Christians of varying backgrounds, within the traditions of the Antiochian Archdiocese, using English as the language of worship.
A few quick notes for first-time visitors:
- You are welcome! We love having visitors join us to worship the Holy Trinity in prayer and song.
- We won’t make a public spectacle of you or ask you to do anything uncomfortable.
- We lay no expectation on visitors of financial contribution to our parish’s ministries.
- We love kids! Our children worship together with us—they are not segregated out during our services. If your child gets a bit out of hand, please do not feel embarrassed to make a visit to the narthex or parish hall until the child is ready to rejoin everyone else in worship.
- Our building is fully handicap-accessible and includes handicap parking in the front of the building and an elevator. If you need any help, let us know!
St. Antony is a parish of the Diocese of Wichita and Mid-America, within the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, part of the ancient Orthodox Christian Patriarchate of Antioch, the place where the disciples of Jesus were first called Christians (Acts 11:26). Our pastor is the Rev. Fr. George Eber.
St. Antony welcomes the people of Tulsa, as well as residents and visitors from throughout the Green Country. The parish community includes members of all ages and ancestry. Among our parishioners, we have people of American, Carpatho-Russian, English, German, Greek, Hispanic, Irish, Italian, Korean, Lebanese, Lithuanian, Palestinian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Scandinavian, Serbian, Slavic, Syrian, and Ukrainian backgrounds… and more!
All are welcome to attend any of our worship services, as well as taking advantage of educational opportunities to learn about the ancient, unchanging Orthodox Christian faith, delivered by Jesus Christ to His Apostles and kept for 2000 years without addition, subtraction or alteration.
Again, whether you’re new to Orthodoxy or are a long-time Orthodox Christian, whoever you are, whatever your background or experience, you are welcome at St. Antony!
Very Reverend Father George Eber
