Welcome to Saint John the Baptist Orthodox Church located in Lewistown, Maryland. We are a Western Rite mission of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America in the Diocese of Charleston, Oakland, and the Mid-Atlantic.
We endeavor to bring the ancient Faith of Christ and the Apostles to the people of Frederick County and beyond. Nearly all of our members are former Protestants who have discovered the treasures of Holy Orthodoxy and the richness of a sacramental life in Christ.
Browse our website and learn more about us. And finally, please visit our historic chapel for a Sunday Mass, for a Saturday evening Vespers service, or for our upcoming special weekday service which is posted below. We invite you to discover for yourself why people from all over are being drawn to the Faith that has remained a bastion of unwavering holiness for 2,000 years. “O taste and see that the Lord is good!”
Yours in Christ,
Father James K. Hamrick,
