Saint John of Kronstadt - Bunnell, Florida

St. John of Kronstadt Orthodox Church began as a mission parish in the year 2000, in a home chapel in Palm Coast, FL – a small town on Florida’s northeast coast located between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach. After two years, it became necessary to have services in area community centers, rented for Sundays and other Holy Days.

In 2003, thanks be to God and many generous donors – including one major benefactor, a small parcel of land was purchased in Bunnell, FL – the county seat of Flagler County, just west of Palm Coast and Flagler Beach. Over the next few years the small parish continued to save for a church building they hoped they could one day afford to build. God then gave the increase - through many generous donors again, and again by one major benefactor, so that it was possible by 2010 to begin construction on a small “Parish House” in which there is a chapel and a small living space for visiting clergy or guests.

Throughout the years, the mission has been served intermittently by priests from the South,North, and Canada, and even on many occasions by our Metropolitan Demetrius. Since October, 2016, however, we’ve been fortunate to have regular weekly and feast day services again since Father George Liadis has been assigned to St. John’s.

Services are now held every Sunday morning starting at 8:30, and for most major Feast Days, followed by coffee hour/trapeza. Even though the faithful here are of diverse cultures and languages, services are in English.

Visitors are always welcome. Please contact us in advance if we can help with accommodations or for more information, at 386-439-1237, or: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Father George can be reached at 508-866-7254.

Not because we are worthy or that we deserve it, but because of our Lord’s unfathomable mercy, this mission parish been allowed to be planted in this small town, and to grow and prosper. Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, and our much beloved St. John – a “saint for our times”, may we gain to the Heavenly Kingdom and the salvation of our souls.

Morning and Evening Prayers

Q. Are the prayers in the blue prayer book [A Prayerbook for Orthodox Christians by the Holy Transfiguration Monastery —ed.] compulsory for everyone? I mean their morning prayers and the service of Small Compline. My confessor gave me a special rule but wasn’t clear about whether this replaced the book prayers or was in addition to them.
