The Antiochian Village is owned and operated by
the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. The
holy Orthodox Christian church was founded by Christ himself and is
described throughout the New Testament. More can be found on the
Orthodox faith by visiting the Antiochian Archdiocese website.
While visiting the Antiochian Village one can visit the Ss. Peter & Paul Chapel located within the Conference Center on the lower level. This chapel is adorned with Byzantine icons written by iconographer Philip Zimmerman.
The chapel is reserved for Orthodox Christian groups when they are using the facility. However, groups of other Christian faiths who confess a belief in the Holy Trinity and whose spiritual and social agendas are generally consistent with those of the Orthodox Christian faith, may use the Chapel for their worship services upon approval.
In addition to the Ss. Peter & Paul Chapel, there is a beautiful meditation hiking trail located just behind the museum. This meditation trail has different stations along the way with icons and quotes from Scripture and Church Fathers.
