The St Michael's Antiochian Orthodox Choir regularly meet to practice chants for the Sunday service.

In the Orthodox Faith, our singing in church is meant to be an Icon of worship. We sing our prayers. Our prayers are sung. And hardly ever do we hear prayers simply said.

More information on the History of our Church, our beliefs, and Liturgical music are located on the "Orthodox Faith" page of this site.

 

 

Christian Importance of Antioch

"...the disciples were first called christians in Antioch"

(Acts 11:26)

The Church of Antioch is the most ancient Christian Church because, as the Acts of the Apostles tells us, it was at Antioch that the followers of Jesus were first called Christian.

Antioch is frequently mentioned throughout both the Old and New Testaments, but most frequently in the Acts of the Apostles. Saint Nicholas, one of the original seven deacons, was a convert from Antioch (Acts 6:5). Christian refugees fled to Antioch during the persecution of the Church in Jerusalem which saw the martyrdom of Saint Stephen (Acts 9).
