Dear brothers and sisters.

Welcome to the website of St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco Russian Orthodox Church in Jacksonville, Florida.

In 2010 a group of Russian speaking Orthodox Christians founded a mission that became a parish church and bears the name of St. John Maximovich, a spiritual leader of Russian Diaspora in the 20th century.

Our ruling bishop is Irenaeus, bishop of Eastern American diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church. Our pastor is protopresbyter John Voloshchuk.

Services are conducted weekly: on Saturdays at 6 p.m. and Sundays at 9:30 a.m. as well as on Orthodox feast days. We follow the Julian calendar.
