Festival of Orthodox Christian Art coming to TX

( - Welcome to Sts. Constantine and Helen Orthodox Church, and to our first Festival of Orthodox Christian Arts!

The Festival is our way of celebrating the completion of our new Temple. It also seemed an opportunity to invite people throughout DFW - and beyond - to "Come and See" both the new Temple and the flowering of Arts that springs from the Orthodox Christian worldview. 

While construction is complete, it will be awhile before the Temple can be officially consecrated. We couldn't wait, however, to celebrate our progress-to-date.

Friday - February 18th
