Resurrection Greek Orthodox Church has been serving the
Low Country's Orthodox Christians since 1990. We have been
blessed with steady growth; our beginnings were humble.
Early services were held in a parishioner’s living
room on Hilton Head Island, later Divine Liturgies were
celebrated in conference rooms at the Shoney’s Inn
and Comfort Inn hotels. For a brief time, Christ Lutheran
Church hosted our Orthodox services on Saturdays. Then in
1995, Holy Resurrection moved to its second floor location
in Heritage Plaza (Hilton Head) and parish members and visitors
worshipped there for eleven years.
September of 2007, thanks to the blessings of our Lord and
Savior, Jesus Christ, we continued to foster our growth.Holy
Resurrection now conducts weekly Sunday services at St.
Andrew’s Chapel, located on 220 Pinckney Colony Road
in Bluffton, South Carolina.
Our mission church serves a
Pan-Orthodox community; the Divine Liturgy is held in English
and many nationalities make up and represent our parish
family: Armenian, Bulgarian, Greek, Lebanese, Palestinian,
Romanian, Russian, Serbian and Syrian.
the Orthodox priests who have served our parish are, in
chronological order: Father John Caparisos, Father Anthony
Stratis, Father Nicholas Spirakis, Father Nicholas Trivelas,
Father Nicholas Capilos and Father Peter Telencio. Currently,
the Divine Liturgy is celebrated each Sunday, 10:00 am,
St. Andrew’s Chapel, by Father Peter
Telencio. Following the Liturgy, we welcome everyone
to join us in the church hall for coffee hour.
