St Maria of Paris Orthodox Church Parish

St Maria of Paris Orthodox Church is a mission station of the the Orthodox Church in America (OCA), Diocese of the South. We began as a small group of Orthodox faithful and inquirers in Cleveland, TN in August 2009, under the care of Archpriest Stephen Freeman, St Anne Orthodox Church in Oak Ridge, TN.

We were blessed with the name St Maria of Paris by Metropolitan Jonah in April 2010.  On February 9, 2014 Deacon Kevin Rigdon was ordained to the priesthood, and was put in charge of the mission. St Maria pray to God for us!
