Welcome to Saint Seraphim Orthodox Christian Church, located in beautiful Santa Rosa, Sonoma County CA.

What is the Orthodox Church? It’s the original Christian Church founded by Jesus and continued by his Apostles. It is the same Church described in the Bible as the Body of Christ and the Bride of Christ. Throughout its 2000-year history Orthodox Christianity has remained faithful to the teachings and practices passed on from the Apostles and early Church Fathers. See this link to learn more.

If you have questions about the Orthodox Church, or our particular Parish, please email me.

Not everyone carries cash, and fewer and fewer folks use checks. So, to respond to the needs of our Parish Members, the Parish Council approved three digital ways to make financial offerings.

1) iPad. Transactions can be made very simply on the Candle Desk iPad (an attendant can assist you if needed). Click the screen, then click the giving category you are interested in, swipe your credit card, make the approval, and you’re done. It is as easy as paying for gas for your car.

2) Text Giving. Enter 707-701-5052 in to your text message App on your cell phone, indicate an amount you want to give (for example, $25). A prompt will open your browser and you indicate which giving category (tithes, icons, charity, etc.) you would like, enter your card info, and you’re done.

3) Phone App. Download the ConnectNow Giving App on your cell phone.


Need Diapers, Wipes or Formula?

Hello! We are so glad you found the M.O.M. (Matushka Olga Michael) Outreach of St. Seraphim Orthodox Cathedral in Santa Rosa. Our ministry is dedicated to the memory of Matushka Olga Michael, a native Alaskan woman who served as a midwife and Orthodox priest’s wife and is revered by many as a holy woman in the Orthodox Christian tradition. We provide free diapers/pull-ups, wipes, formula, and some other baby and maternity items (depending on what has been donated) to Sonoma County families in need, free of charge, once a month. Our distributions take place on the final Wednesday of every month from 4-6 pm at St. Seraphim Orthodox Church, 90 Mountain View Avenue, Santa Rosa.

Please complete the following application before coming to the distribution. This information is simply to help us get to know more about you and your situation, and we will not share it with anyone. After we review and approve your application, we will email you inviting you to request the specific items that you need.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact us at mom.outreach.sr@gmail.com and we will respond as soon as possible.

Thank you so much and we look forward to meeting you soon!
