Saint John of Kronstadt - Bunnell, Florida

St. John of Kronstadt Orthodox Church began as a mission parish in the year 2000, in a home chapel in Palm Coast, FL – a small town on Florida’s northeast coast located between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach. After two years, it became necessary to have services in area community centers, rented for Sundays and other Holy Days.

In 2003, thanks be to God and many generous donors – including one major benefactor, a small parcel of land was purchased in Bunnell, FL – the county seat of Flagler County, just west of Palm Coast and Flagler Beach. Over the next few years the small parish continued to save for a church building they hoped they could one day afford to build. God then gave the increase - through many generous donors again, and again by one major benefactor, so that it was possible by 2010 to begin construction on a small “Parish House” in which there is a chapel and a small living space for visiting clergy or guests.

Throughout the years, the mission has been served intermittently by priests from the South,North, and Canada, and even on many occasions by our Metropolitan Demetrius. Presently, Father Dimitrios Adamopoulos serves here on most weekends.

On weekends when Fr. Dimitrios or another priest is here we serve Great Vespers on Saturday evenings starting at 7:00 pm. On Sundays, Matins starts at 8:30, followed by the Divine Liturgy, Coffee hour/trapeza follows that. Even though the faithful here are of diverse cultures and languages, services are mostly in English.

Visitors are always welcome. Please contact us in advance if we can help with accommodations or for more information, at 386-439-1237.

Not because we are worthy or that we deserve it, but because of our Lord’s unfathomable mercy, this mission parish been allowed to be planted in this small town, and to grow and prosper. Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, and our much beloved St. John – a “saint for our times”, may we gain to the Heavenly Kingdom and the salvation of our souls.

The Reading is from the (False) Prophecy of Paisios

Why do we Call Angels “Saint”?

Q. I noticed that we call the angels Michael and Gabriel "Saint." I thought the title "Saint" was only given to humans who have proven themselves Godly. Do you mind clarifying this for me? Is there a deeper meaning to "Saint" that I am not aware of?
