"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7  
The St. Athanasius the Great Greek Orthodox Church in Arlington, Massachusetts strives to be a living witness of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Our mission as a Parish is to "Practice Hospitality" (Romans 12:13), as St. Paul so exhorts......  Thus, it is our rich blessing to strive and bring the Light of Christ to all of God's people, through Orthodox Christian tradition, education, and philanthropy.  We seek to serve the spiritual needs of our faithful parishioners through the sacramental life of the Church.  By means of outreach and faith in God, we continue our growth as a living Church by inviting others into the Orthodox faith through Baptism and/or Chrismation, and educating them through the establishment of our Christian ministries, programs, schools, and philanthropic activities.
