Welcome to Holy Myrrhbearers

Serving Harrisonburg and Virginia's Shenandoah Valley


With the blessing of the First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad, His Eminence, Metropolitan Hilarion, the first divine services were held at the newly opened Holy Myrrhbearers Orthodox 'Mission' in Harrisonburg, Virginia, on February 3, 2012.

In January, 2013, a decision was made to merge the congregation of All Saints of North America Russian Orthodox Church in Middlebrook with that of Holy Myrrhbearers. Fr. Gabriel Weller serves as Rector. Here is our church's Mission Statement.

The angel came to the myrrhbearing women at the tomb and said: Myrrh is fitting for the dead, but Christ has shown himself a stranger to corruption! So proclaim: The Lord is risen, granting the world great mercy.
Troparion of the Myrrhbearing Women
