Brief History

Korean Orthodox Mission

The brief history and present ROCOR mission status in Korea are described here (click).

Since we are located in a local country area (east coast), people who live in big cities are not easily able to participate to the Divine Liturgy. We give reguar services as follows;
Regular Services
Saturday, 6:00 pm. All-night Vigil.
Sunday, 10:00 am. Liturgy.

With the Grace of our Lord Jesus, we earnestly pray and believe firmly that we would be able to serve our Lord in Seoul again so that many people would gather and praise our Lord as we did until 1997.

The Russian Orthodox Community in Korea is small and weak now, however, like a small mustard seed, we sow our faith to see its growth to a big tree. We pray for the completion of our mission given by Jesus Christ with the help of the Holly Spirit.

May the Glory would be to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit forever, Amen.
