St. Olympia Orthodox Church in Potsdam, NY, is young church community under the Orthodox 
Church of America, Diocese of New York/New Jersey in cooperation with the Monastery of St. Silouan the
Athonite, OCA Archdiocese of Canada. Divine Liturgies are held weekly at a private chapel. Fellowship and
a parish lunch follow the services. For many years prior to the establishment of this mission, St. Vasilios Greek
Orthodox Church in Watertown, NY, came to Potsdam twice a year to hold a liturgy. The services offered by
this mission parish are meant to supplement those offerings.
 Members of the St. Olympia Orthodox Church are from all ethnic backgrounds: Greek, Russian, Albanian, 
Ukrainian, Eritrean... and just plain American.
Services are primarily in English, and the music is from both the
Byzantine chant and Russian choral traditions. The community is a mix of students,
post-doctoral researchers
and faculty, as well as local families. It is a blend of "cradle Orthodox," converts to the faith and people
exploring Orthodoxy

The community is cared for by our Priest Fr. Paul Fedoroff, Priest in Charge.
