About Our Church
St. Seraphim Orthodox Church is a parish of the Orthodox Church in America. As the OCA website states, the Church "traces its origins to the arrival in Kodiak, Alaska of eight Orthodox missionaries from the Valaamo Monastery in the northern Karelia region of Russia in 1794. Today, the Orthodox Church in America numbers some 700 parishes, missions, communities, monasteries, and institutions throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico."
