St. Ignatius of Antioch Orthodox Christian Church

By choosing the Apostles’ way of life, thou hast succeeded to their throne. Inspired by God, thou didst find the way to divine contemplation through the practice of virtue. After teaching the Word of Truth without error, thou didst defend the Faith to the very shedding of thy blood, O Holy Martyr among bishops Ignatius. Entreat the Lord our God to save our souls.

St. Ignatius of Antioch Orthodox Christian Church is a parish of the Diocese of Los Angeles and the West of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. Our parish is made up of a wide variety of people from all walks of life and include those who were born into the faith and those who choose the faith later in life. Our services are mostly in English with occasional parts in different languages to minister to the wide variety of ethnic backgrounds represented among our people.

ALL ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND SERVICES. The pastor requests that any visiting Orthodox Christians who wish to receive the Sacraments contact him in advance of the visit.

His Eminence, Archbishop JOSEPH's Thought for the Day

"Liturgy is not a rigid thing to be repeated unconsciously. It is an expression of the human need to talk to the Lord, and to thank Him for His grace. Liturgy is spirit and life running through the veins of the body of the Church, and nurturing all its members. It revives the Church, the community and the individuals with the grace that is bestowed upon it. Hence, we are here before a precious gem. We should polish it and reveal its glorious face, stressing the essence of the liturgical practice which leads the believer to grow in Christ. It is therefore important to resort to all tools that enable the people to reach the depth of this inspiring liturgy, that they may take from it that which will help them attain salvation and understanding of the mystery of God." -- His Beatitude, Patriarch JOHN X




2014 Church Renovation

In late February and early March of 2014, St. Ignatius of Antioch Church underwent a remodel to remove the wall seperating the narthex and the nave to allow more space for the growing number of attendees each week. Before and after pictures of the remodel are available here.
