"The Lenten spring has come, 
the flower of repentance. 
O brothers, let us cleanse ourselves from all evil, 
crying out to the Giver of light: 
'Glory to You, O Lover of mankind!'"



Our parish is named after a modern saint, Saint John the Wonderworker, who was known for his great love for others, especially his love for orphaned children. St. John’s Troparion says that he gave hope to the hopeless, and giving hope is close to the heart of our parish. All of us need the hope that can only come from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Through prayer and outreaches such as the Loaves and Fishes program which feeds the homeless, St. Nicholas Academy, our bookstore, our choir, and other ministries, we care for each other and the needy around us. Our parish is a loving, growing, Orthodox community where we strive together towards the greatest hope of all, heaven.

Saint John the Wonderworker Parish is the first church in the world named after Saint John (Maximovitch) of Shanghai and San Francisco. The parish is located in Atlanta, Georgia and joined the OCA as part of the Diocese of the South under Archbishop Dmitri of Dallas (now reposed) in September of 2000. Fr Tom Alessandroni is our current priest and has been shepherding our flock since 2013. We are under His Eminence, The Most Reverend ALEXANDER, Archbishop of Dallas and the Diocese of the South.

Services are held in English and we follow the New Calendar. We welcome visitors to stay for lunch after liturgy on Sundays.

“O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, despair, lust of power, and idle talk.

But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience, and love to Thy servant.

Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own transgressions, and not to judge my brother, for blessed art Thou, unto ages of ages. Amen."

-Lenten Prayer of St. Ephrem
