Clergy

Rev. Fr. Joseph Chaffee – Presiding Priest

For over 90 years we have served as a witness to the ancient Eastern Orthodox Faith to the people of Kern County. Our services are predominantly in English as we serve the diverse and vibrant Orthodox Community of Kern County. We are blessed to have Orthodox Christian members of many various ethnic backgrounds, including Greek, Russian, Ukranian, Romanian, Serbian, Moldavian, Egyptian, Eritrean, Ethiopian, as well as from the Holy Land and much of the Middle East including Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq. Many of our members are from families that have been in Bakersfield for generations. We have also been blessed with a great many converts to the Orthodox Faith. You are welcome to join us in worship.
