We are a English speaking parish in the Orthodox Church in America. Please join us we are very friendly and welcoming! 


The mission of St. Paul’s Cathedral Dearborn Heights is to proclaim the Gospel of Christ, to teach and spread the Orthodox Christian Faith, to energize, cultivate and guide the life of our parish according to the Orthodox Christian Faith and Tradition.


Our parish sanctifies the faithful through divine worship, especially the Holy Eucharist and other sacraments (mysteries), building the spiritual and ethical life of the faithful in accordance with the Holy Scriptures and the whole of Holy Tradition.


St. Paul’s Cathedral serves as a beacon, carrier and witness of the message of Christ to all persons in the greater Dearborn Heights area through divine worship, preaching, teaching and living of the Orthodox Christian Faith.


As a community… 
• We value diversity of backgrounds. We are a place where people’s lives are slowly healed. 
• We don’t care about your neighborhood, your social status or your chosen career. You are welcome.
• Children should be in Church. Their noise is holy. 
• We come to church to offer our best possible worship. Our worship is dignified, peaceful and thankful while also being participative; joyous and even contagious.
• We balance patience and tranquility with being driven and intentional. We are going somewhere.
• We strive for excellence, not perfection, in all things that we do.  
• We are able to answer questions about our faith. We are prepared to answer for the hope that is in us.
• We get things done with reasonable efficiency through a structured and organized parish council and collection of ministry teams. We value individual initiative and hope to make our parish a place where fresh ideas can blossom. Our parish council sees itself as co-responsible, under the guidance of the priest, to move our community into the future.
• We share and enjoy various ethnic customs. We respect our parishioner’s ethnic inheritance and help them to project that inheritance into the future.

On September 6th, 2014, we had a Parish Revitalization Workshop, click here for a slideshow of the results.
