Welcome to our parish!
Nativity of the Holy Virgin is located within the geographical and canonical boundaries of the Diocese of the South and within the canonical jurisdiction of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA). We welcome everyone to join us for Divine Liturgy each Sunday at 9:30 AM in the historic town of Derita, North Carolina. Please check the calendar for special events and services.

We exist as a community to offer praise and thanksgiving to the biblical God who reveals himself through his son Jesus Christ and who sends his life creating Spirit. Our worship services are conducted in English. We recognize the need to proclaim the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the greater Charlotte area, and to the whole world.
Nativity of the Holy Virgin is a family-centered Christian community whose diverse members follow practices traced to the very origins of the Church. If you would like further information about our parish, its ongoing ministry, or the Eastern Orthodox Church, please contact our parish priest, Father William C. Mills, by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at (704) 596-8252.
