Langley, British Columbia: St. Herman of Alaska Orthodox Church

St. Herman of Alaska Orthodox Church in Langley, B.C, is a parish of the Orthodox Church in America, located in suburban Vancouver on the Canadian west coast. Its pastor is Fr. Lawrence Farley who contributes to The Sounding blog, the oca.org blog, and has regular podcasts with the Coffee Cup Commentaries, on Ancient Faith Radio. He has also published a number of books, including the Orthodox Bible Study Companion series, on every book of the New Testament.

Fr. Lawrence has served as pastor of the parish since its founding in 1987, being ably assisted by a deacon, Gregory Wright, and another priest, Fr. Richard Rene. The parish consists largely of converts and young people, with about 40% of the parish being under the age of ten.

Every Sunday Matins is served with Byzantine melodies, followed by Divine Liturgy and a full pot-luck meal in the church hall, followed by a time of instruction for the catechumens. The present building is too small for the growing congregation, and they are actively looking for a larger building.
