Thine angelic life of fasting hath spread thy glory throughòut the chûrch of Christ, / O venerable father Brendàn. / For thou didst sail the waters of thè thundering sea / like a merchant seeking a pèarl of greát price, / but didst obtain it in heaven from the hand of the Lord. / Wherefore, O God-bearing father, / bestow this treasure upon those who now call upon thée with faith / and who cherish thine honored memory.

Saint Brendan the Navigator Orthodox Church began life as Holy Nativity Eastern Orthodox Mission in Kelso, Washington. In 2012 it relocated to Hammond, Oregon, serving the needs of the North Coast. In observance of its service to our local seafaring community, the name was changed to Saint Brendan the Navigator Orthodox Church with the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Benjamin of the Orthodox Church in America. The church is part of the western diocese of the Orthodox Church in America, which traces its roots to Saint Herman of Alaska and the Russian mission to America in the late 1700s.
