Welcome!

Welcome to Holy Ghost Orthodox Church, located in Ambridge Borough, Beaver County, Pennsylvania! We are a parish in the Archdiocese of Western Pennsylvania of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA).  The over 115 year old parish has over 140 adult members with a mix of ages, in addition to approximately 20 children.

Parish programs include church school, teen group, adult choir, Liturgical Chanting Class, Fellowship of Orthodox Christians of America (FOCA) Chapter #5, and a Ladies Altar Society.

Responses to the services are done both with the choir and congregation.  Responses are mainly in English with a small amount of Church Slavonic.

The parish has been involved in various community outreach programs during the past few years including feeding the homeless, charity food collections, aid to displaced fire victims, donations to the International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) and Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC).  The Holy Ghost parish is also a member of the Fellowship of Orthodox Stewards (FOS) of the OCA.

We are a handicap accessible facility by means of an elevator lift into the church nave via the vestibule front entrance.
