Clergy and Chapel faithful gather in 2014 to plant a cross on the lot. Construction of the building will begin June 28, 2015.

Be a part of history as construction begins on Snyder County’s first Orthodox church!

All are invited to join Fr. John Reeves of Holy Trinity Orthodox Church and the faithful of the Chapel of the Holy Spirit in breaking ground at our new temple’s location on N. Kern St. in Beavertown this Sunday, June 28 at 12:15 p.m.

The ceremony follows the 10 a.m. Divine Liturgy at the MACC (67 Elm St., Beaver Springs) and continues with a light lunch reception a block away at Dn. David Smith’s home (350 Old Orchard Dr.), which served for many years as the community’s original meeting location.
