Our Mission Statement:

We are called by our Lord Jesus Christ to love God and our neighbor, to become one as a community of believers and to personally strive for theosis (oneness with God). Our Mission as a parish is to acknowledge   our Lord’s calling by actively embracing the four pillars of Orthodox Christianity: Litourgia (worship), Martyria (witness), Koinonia   (fellowship),  and Diakonia (service).

Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church has been active in Reading, PA since 1914.  We are a part of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.  The roots of our Faith are found in Jesus Christ and His Apostles.  The bishops, priests, and deacons of the Orthodox Christian Church maintain a direct, unbroken, apostolic line from Jesus Christ to present day through their ordination by the laying on of hands (Acts. 6:6).  

We welcome everyone to come and worship with us in the morning Matins (Orthros) Service and Divine Liturgy held on Sundays.  Our services are conducted in both English and Greek and our service books are printed in both languages.  Join us and hear the Good News!

If you have any questions, or would simply like to speak with our Pastor, Fr. Tom Pappalas, please contact the Church Office at (610) 374-7511 or email us at office@stsconstantinehelen.org.
