St. Symeon Orthodox Church is a parish of the Orthodox Church in America, Diocese of the South, composed primarily of American converts to Orthodoxy, along with Romanians, Russians, Serbs, Greeks, Arabs, and Bulgarians.

There are links on this site for further information on Orthodoxy. Visitors are always welcome at St. Symeon! Many of us started our journey as “visitors.” We say to all, "Come and see!” Come and see and experience the unchanged Christian Faith – the Orthodox Church!

New CD - "Hymns of the Nativity of Christ"

St. Symeon Church Choir has just released their newest CD - Hymns of the Nativity of Christ! Avaliable HERE for $20.00.

In this extensive two disc recording,  our largest undertaking to date by far, we present a selection of hymns from the Great Compline, Festal Matins, and Divine Liturgy of the Feast of the Nativity of Christ, as well as a few traditional Orthodox carols from the Ukrainian and Carpatho- Russian traditions. Looking ahead to the glorious Feast of Theophany (which used to be celebrated by the Church together with the Nativity as one grand Feast, that of the God-Man Jesus Christ and the manifestation of the worship of the Holy Trinity), we have included the Troparion of Theophany as the final track. It is Aleksandr Kastalsky’s arrangement of the ancient Znamenny Chant, and is a first-time recording in English by a full choir.

In addition, there are seven other first-time recordings of chants/hymns in English: Tracks 1, 6, the sessional hymn portion of Track 11, Tracks 13, 16, 23, and 28. There are three hymns from the ancient Byzantine Chant tradition - Tracks 5, 9, and 17. May the holy joy that filled the cave in Bethlehem and the peace of the Incarnate Christ be ever in your hearts, both during the Advent season and throughout the year!
