Patristic Faith is a home for those who seek traditional Orthodox teachings. A refuge from the watered-down, superficial, and politically-correct Christian content found online. Our ministry focuses on promoting an Orthodox ascetical life of prayer and participation in Liturgical services, instructing people on the spiritual virtues, commemorating the lives of the saints, teaching the traditions of the Fathers and defending the faith (apologetics). Ultimately, Patristic Faith aims to carry out the Great Commission of Jesus Christ and provide continuing education to Orthodox Faithful through publications and media that serves to edify, educate, and teach how to live a Christian life.
