Saint Simeon Russian Orthodox Church

Saint Simeon Russian Orthodox Church
1421 Cedar St.

From St. Simeon, one can see Mt. St. Helena, as far east the Russians entered the continental US.

St. Simeon is a hybrid church of sorts belonging both to the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR) and Orthodox Church in America (OCA). The liturgy is a combination of English and Slavonic. Many of the icons are more westernized and realistic, though Andrei Rublev's Holy Trinity is in a corner. There are icons of St. Nicholas of Myra, St. Herman of Alaska, Saints Constantine and Helen, as well as the last royal family of Russia, Czar Nicholas II with his wife Alexandra and their children.
