Pilgrimage-Cruise to Alaska (08/2023)

Announcing the ORTHODOX pilgrimage CRUISE TO ALASKA: august 19-26, 2023

Join us for the 5th edition of our exceptional 7-day Conference & Pilgrimage Orthodox Cruise to Alaska, to the roots of Orthodox Christianity in North America sailing from Seattle on August 19, 2023. Be amazed by the power and beauty of creation at Glacier Bay, explore Juneau and Sitka, the historical capital of Russian America. Sitka is the home of St Michael’s Cathedral and the Bishop’s House where Saint Innocent himself served. Two engaging speakers will offer daily lectures dealing with Alaskan history and Orthodox spirituality. The speakers and cruise leaders are Fr Michael Oleksa, one of the foremost authorities on Orthodoxy and Native Cultures in Alaska, and Fr Laurent Cleenewerck, editor of the Eastern-Greek Orthodox New Testament and of several well-received books.

The ship will be the spectacular Holland America Eurodam, with cabins starting at $ 1,934 (stateroom per person, which includes all taxes and conference fees). This semi-annual event is organized with the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop BENJAMIN of San Francisco and the West and His Grace Bishop ALEXEI of Sitka and Alaska (Orthodox Church in America).

Registrations should be made as soon as possible as only 46 slots are available and will be allocated on a first come, first-serve basis. COVID-19 proof of vaccination not required to board (testing may be required; all health restrictions are subject to change; US passport or green card required).

Welcome to Saint Innocent Orthodox Church in Eureka, CA

Welcome to Saint Innocent Orthodox Church in Eureka (Humboldt County), California. This is where you will find the teachings of Jesus Christ proclaimed and the full assurance of the Church manifested “for the life of the world and its salvation.”

Saint Innocent’s is the only Orthodox Church serving Humboldt County, and we are part of the Diocese of the West of the Orthodox Church in America, in communion with the entire worldwide Orthodox Christian Communion. Our parish is named after Saint Innocent of Alaska, the great missionary and first bishop of the American Pacific-Northwest, who sailed just outside Eureka in the 1830s.

Surprisingly, many people still do not know the Orthodox Church well, even though it is the world’s oldest, second largest Christian body. There are those who think that “Greek Orthodox” is somehow different than “Serbian Orthodox” or “Russian Orthodox” and that one has to be from a particular country or national group to be Orthodox… Actually, there is a single Orthodox Church globally which is a federation of national bodies (such as the Archdiocese of Athens and All Greece, as well as the Patriarchate of Romania among 16 others), and the Church is open to everyone.

“Come, taste and see that the Lord is good,” and that the Church built upon the Rock in 33 AD is still flourishing in faithfulness to its Apostolic roots and mandate.
