Welcome to our Church
The Romanian Orthodox Parish ‘Saint Andrew the Apostle’
in Johannesburg, South Africa
The Romanian Orthodox Parish ‘Saint Andrew the Apostle’ (ROPSAASA – Romanian Orthodox Parish “Saint Andrew the Apostle”in South Africa) is the first and, for the time being, the single Romanian Orthodox parish on the African continent. In the year 2000, a community of Romanian Orthodox believers from Johannesburg gathered to praise God, together with Father MIRCEA CORPODEAN (under the form of association SARCOA – Saint Andrew Romanian Christian Orthodox Association).
Through the sustained material
and moral efforts of a small Romanian community
and with the Romanian Patriarchate’s support, the parish, with its organized spiritual, social and cultural activities, has contributed in keeping of the Romanian Orthodox faith and values among the believers and within the framework of South African society.
