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.

If you have questions about the Orthodox Church, or our particular Parish, please email me.

The Konovets Quartet in Concert

Saturday, February 23, 2019. Sung Vespers in the Cathedral at 5 PM, and a concert in the Parish Hall at 7 PM. Complementary wine, beverages, cheese and finger foods.

“At first, silence — pure silence — and we wait. Miracle: sound of equal purity. Four disembodied voices creating notes that seem to emanate from elsewhere. The small group of young singers from St. Petersburg lead us into a space where sound and silence unite…” — Peter Brook 

The Konevets Quartet was founded in 1992 by four young musicians from the St. Petersburg Conservatoire who were singing in the choir of the Konevets Monastery of the Holy Nativity on the island of Konevets in Lake Ladoga. Their first audiences were the people working on the restoration of the monastery, and the pilgrims and tourists who came to the island.
Cost: $15 Adults, $10 all ages under 17
