Sts. Joachim and Anna Orthodox Church
San Antonio, Texas


Sts. Joachim and Anna is open for our regular services. No sign-up is required.


Please come if you can, but continue wearing your masks in church. As usual, if you are not feeling well, or if you feel you may be at risk for infection by COVID 19 or may put someone else at risk, please refrain from coming out of prudence and compassion.

You may venerate icons as normal if you wish, and kiss the Chalice after receiving Holy Communion, as well as the blessing Cross and the priest's hand. These actions are at your discretion. 

In all the Holy Things of God is life; we trust in the safety of true, eternal life and health in Christ before all other things. "If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all men most to be pitied" I Corinthians 15:19.

Yours in Christ,
Fr. Christopher
