Welcome to St. Apollinaria IOC, An Inclusive Orthodox Mission
St. Apollinaria is a developing mission of the Independent Orthodox Church, operating under the Apostolic Authority of the Convergent Christian Communion. We are a progressive and affirming Eastern Orthodox Christian Church in the Baltimore/DC Metro area. We are LGBTQ+ affirming, and proud to be part of a jurisdiction that affirms women in ministry. We are a church committed to expressing the fullness of Eastern Orthodox traditions, but doing so in ways that are as inclusive as possible.
Thank you for visiting.
