Christ is in our midst!
Welcome to the web site of the St. Gregory the Theologian Orthodox Church, a pan-Orthodox community that serves the community of Wappingers Falls, and the mid-Hudson Valley. Our church is a parish of the Diocese of New York & New Jersey of the Orthodox Church in America. Here you can find information about our parish and its services and events. Be sure to visit our "News & Events" section for upcoming liturgical, educational, social and fundraising events.
St. Gregory the Theologian Orthodox Church welcomes their new rector, Archpriest Eric George Tosi, DMin, and his wife Christina and two children Alexander and Kyra. Fr. Eric comes to St. Gregory's after spending eleven years as the Secretary of the Orthodox Church in America at the OCA Chancery on Long Island and teaching at St. Vladimir's Orthodox Seminary. A son of the Diocese, Fr. Eric comes back with great joy. Prior to his time at the Chancery, Fr. Eri was the rector of St. Paul's Orthodox Church in Las Vegas, NV and St. Nicholas of South Canaan Orthodox Church in Billings, MT. He also served as the chair of the OCA's Department of Evangelization among other duties.
Fr. Eric and his family look forward to settling into the area and getting to know everyone in the parish. A brief biography of Fr. Eric can be found here: files/A-Brief-Biography-rev.pdf (123kb)
It has come to the Council's attention that some parishoners may not want a photo of themselves on any Church-run websites. In order to keep documentation of this, the Council is asking anyone who does not want his/her picture to be shared please contact Kris Puzza at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we do not hear from you, it will be assumed that the parishoner allows the use of his/her photo on the website or any webpage controlled by the Church. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
