Cranberry Municipal Center

Cranberry, Pennsylvania

An Outreach of St. Anthony Orthodox Church of Butler, PA, Fr. Bodan Bucur, 400 S. 6th Avenue, Butler, PA 16001, 412-390-8208. Cranberry does not have an Orthodox Church but it is home to many Orthodox Christians and to many who seek for the fullness of the Christian faith. There are also many who, for whatever reason, are not attending church. With the blessing of His Grace Bishop Thomas, our parish is starting a missionary and pastoral outreach which aims to extend the presence of Orthodoxy into Cranberry.  Join us on to pray and to learn about the Orthodox faith, to ask questions, and to cultivate friendship with God. We are meeting on Thursdays, 7-8 PM in the Cranberry Municipal Center (Cranberry Township Municipal Center, 2525 Rochester Rd).  Here are the website and FB:  http://www.orthodoxcranberry.org  and facebook.com/orthodoxcranberry
