About

This is an online journal of Father John Moses, an Orthodox priest of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Father John and his wife, Alexandra, were born and raised in Virginia’s beautiful Shenandoah Valley which is surrounded by the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains. They have two children, Elizabeth and John, a son-in-law, Fr. Deacon Thomas, and a new granddaughter, Abigail. Fr. John was raised as a United Methodist, and his wife was raised in the Baptist Church. He received his Master of Divinity degree from Duke University and served as a Methodist minister for 20 years. The family first encountered the Orthodox Faith while he was on a leave of absence to do graduate study at the University of Durham, England. By the grace of God and the warm and sacrificial support from Orthodox clergy he met in the years after his return to the US, he and his family converted to the Orthodox Faith. Father John was ordained to the priesthood in 1996.

They returned to the land of their birth and established All Saints of North America Russian Orthodox Church in Middlebrook, a small rural village located in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, where they served the congregation there for 18 years. Then, with the blessing of His Grace, Metropolitan Hilarion, the congregation moved to Harrisonburg, Virginia, and formed under a new name, Holy Myrrhbearers.

Please visit the parish church site, Holy Myrrhbearers.
