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.

St. Brendan Orthodox Church is part of the Diocese of The West, which is presided over by The Most Reverend Benjamin, Archbishop of San Francisco and the West. Our mission is bringing the joy of Christ's resurrection to those who have never heard the Good News, and to strengthen and encourage the faithful who reside within Astoria and the local area. 

More Information >

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Daily Readings >

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
