About Us

In September 2001, His Grace Bishop BASIL gave his blessing to efforts to begin an Antiochian Orthodox Christian Mission in the Bryan-College Station area. Since that time we have grown to include members of many backgrounds. St. Silouan the Athonite Mission is a local parish of the Self-Ruled Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America.

Fr. Gregory Gibson is the priest assigned to this mission, and it was established under the guidance of priest-in-charge Fr. Matthew MacKay, pastor of the St. Joseph Antiochian Orthodox Church.

The St. Silouan the Athonite Antiochian Orthodox Church celebrates the Liturgy using the Eastern (Byzantine) rite. This is the liturgical form used by the Antiochian, Greek, Russian, Serbian and other Eastern Orthodox Churches today. Much of the service is sung in Byzantine chant. Other parts of the Liturgy, such as the Nicene Creed and the Lord's Prayer, are recited by the congregation.
