Holy Incarnation has closed her doors. The parish's founding in 2007 was the re-establishment of a Western Rite Orthodox parish in metropolitan Detroit. Built on the influential legacy of the former Incarnation Orthodox Church (1975-2001), Holy Incarnation served the liturgical needs of Western Rite Orthodox Christians in and around Detroit. God also made the parish a wellspring by which many were brought into Christ's one, holy Catholic and Orthodox Church. Yet by the end of 2015 the majority of the parish's parishioners had dispersed to other homes, jobs, and callings from God throughout the country. And so as the parish began from a legacy held in trust by the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, so she returns until such time that other Orthodox faithful desire to congregate according to the Orthodox Western Rite.
To all who over her eight year ministry assisted the parish in her Christian service to metropolitan Detroit and beyond – whether through prayers, gifts, time, or other forms of generosity and sacrifice – we thank you and thank God for you. If you are interested in speaking with someone about Holy Incarnation or the Orthodox Western Rite, you are invited to contact the Vicar General of the Antiochian Orthodox Western Rite.
