Welcome to St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church
The mission of our web site is to provide an instant and accessible forum of information about our parish, its families, our culture and our faith, Orthodox Christianity. It is intended to be educational, informative and spiritual, with the ultimate goal being the spreading of His Word.
We welcome all resident and non-resident Orthodox and non-Orthodox faithful to our church and invite you to join us for altar services, educational programs and events.

"Teens and pre-teens from St. Demetrios and Assumption once again returned to Camp Angelos for the annual Northwest GOYA Youth Retreat. Joining them was the lively youth group from Holy Trinity and St. John the Forerunner in Portland, who hosted the event.
"In addition to being blessed with sunny (though fairly cold) weather, campers this year were treated to "Be the Bee's" very own Steve Christoforou, whose presentations invited campers and counselors alike to deepen their relationship with God through stillness, prayer and community.
"When not engaged in thought-provoking discussions about the Faith, campers enjoyed Greek dancing, fasting-appropriate (and very well-made) meals, an eclectic talent show (with a surprise ending) and, of course, each others' company. When it was time to return to Seattle, the Portland campers bid farewell to their friends by lining the road and waving until the northbound bus was out of sight. God willing, they will see each other again at this spring's GOYA retreat in Seattle, if not sooner.
St. Demetrios is hosting an Amazing Race Lenten Retreat for all GOYAns in April 1-3, 2016 and we are looking forward to hosting the youth of Washington and Portland Orthodox parishes.
