Welcome to Saint Seraphim Orthodox Church. We are an Eastern Orthodox Christian Church located in beautiful Santa Rosa, Sonoma County CA.
What is the Orthodox Church? It's the original Christian Church founded by Jesus and continued by his Apostles. It is the same Church described in the Bible as the Body of Christ and the Bride of Christ. Throughout its 2000-year history Orthodox Christianity has remained faithful to the teachings and practices passed on from the Apostles and early Church Fathers. See this link to learn more.

• GIVING BY TEXT OR IPAD:
Not everyone carries cash, and fewer and fewer folks use checks. So, to respond to the needs of our Parish Members, the Parish Council approved three digital ways to make financial offerings.
1) iPad. Transactions can be made very simply on the Candle Desk iPad (an attendant can assist you if needed). Click the screen, then click the giving category you are interested in, swipe your credit card, make the approval, and you’re done. It is as easy as paying for gas for your car.
2) Text Giving. Enter 707-701-5052 in to your text message App on your cell phone, indicate an amount you want to give (for example, $25). A prompt will open your browser and you indicate which giving category (tithes, icons, charity, etc.) you would like, enter your card info, and you’re done.
3) Phone App. Download the “ConnectNow Giving App” on your cell phone. https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/parishsoft/ id1244158208
or just Google the words ConnectNow Giving App.
