Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,

Christ is in our midst!

Welcome to the website of St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church of Newport, RI. St. Spyridon Church is within the Metropolis of Boston, which is part of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America – one of the daughter Churches of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. St. Spyridon is the only Eastern Orthodox church on Aquidneck Island, and as such, serves the needs of all Orthodox Christians of the island and its surrounding communities.

At St. Spyridon, we conduct the full cycle of Sunday services, commencing with Great Vespers on Saturday evenings, through Orthros (Matins) and the Divine Liturgy on Sunday mornings. All feasts of our Lord, the Theotokos, and of the major saints are celebrated in like fashion. We also have weekly Vespers and the Paraklesis (Supplication) to the Theotokos once per month, both on Wednesday evenings. Adult religious education sessions are usually held at least twice each year, on Wednesday evenings after service.

We welcome all to worship with us, whether you are visiting the area, or live locally and would like to experience the ancient worship of the Orthodox Church. May God bless you!


** We all enjoyed having Fr. Makarios with us while Fr. George was on vacation. Here is a copy of him singing the beautiful "Give Thanks" song which he sang and spoke of in his sermon. Give Thanks
