Welcome!

Our Parish of the Eastern Orthodox Church was founded in 1982 as a house church in Medford Oregon. In 1995 Fr. Seraphim was assigned the priest, and in 1998 the parish received the donation of a small barn in Rogue River Oregon which was converted to a place of worship. However, due to deterioration, this structure had to be demolished and construction began where St. Innocent church resides today. In 2020, Fr. Seraphim retired, and Fr. Joshua was assigned as priest. After a considerable amount of hard work and dedication, our parish was given approval by the county to occupy our church in December of 2022.

Because we are a small parish in numbers, we would not have been able to build this church on our own, but our faith was not shaken. Therefore, through abundant prayer, parish members and local craftsmen who donated their labor and time, and many donations from God loving people locally and from all over the world, the previous donated barn has been replaced by the magnificent church of St Innocent of Irkutsk.

St. Innocent church strives to maintain traditional Orthodox ethos and follow the ancient way of life and worship. Our desire is not only to preserve the traditions of the Holy Orthodox Church and their successors that have been passed down to us, but also to grow the values of faith, family, and community for future generations. Although St. Innocent is part of R.O.C.O.R, our members are mostly American converts, therefore, all services are in English.

We are now called to write the next chapter of the story of St. Innocent church. It now becomes our responsibility, as followers of Christ, to take up this sacred task. Whether we are life-long members of St. Innocent, or just joined the community recently, we are the spiritual inheritors of this legacy.

Dear friends and supporters.

As the year 2023 comes to a close, please consider contributing whatever possible to St Innocent of Irkutsk Orthodox church. Your support strengthens our small communities ability to complete important projects that we are unable to do on our own. Indeed several projects are essential. One such task is finishing the basement of our church so the faithful have a nice place to gather for food and fellowship following Divine services. The estimated cost for this project is 40,000 dollars.  

In 2024 we will remain consistent in our efforts to spread the light of Orthodoxy both locally and worldwide. Our goal is to inspire and encourage people to live the Orthodox life as revealed to us by Christ God and lived by the Apostles and shaped by centuries of practice by the Saints of the Orthodox Church.

The Mother or God once said, “My dear one, if someone doth bear one brick for the building of My church in the Name of Jesus Christ, My Son and God, his treasure perisheth not.”

What is the Orthodox Church?

“The Orthodox Christian Church is evangelical, but not Protestant.
It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman.
It is not denominational, it is pre-denominational.
It has believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for the
Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost nearly 2,000 years ago.”
