Welcome to Christ the Savior / Holy Spirit Orthodox Church !

A parish of the Orthodox Church in America,

'The Ancient Faith in Contemporary Cincinnati'


Which  exists by the grace and to the glory of the Living God, so that the Glorious Gospel of His Son Jesus Christ may be proclaimed in an Orthodox manner as the Apostolic Faith which was "once for all delivered to the saints" (Jude 3).

Our parish website has numerous helpful resources, which will tell you a great deal about our church family and life, as well as about the Orthodox Christian Faith. Here is a brief overview of what you can find here; just click on each section link to learn more. Please direct any specific questions to our pastor, Fr Steven Kostoff.

'God has gone up with a shout!

The Lord with the sound of a trumpet!' (Psalm 47)


Following the Great Feast of the Ascension, in our prayers and services we do not offer the opening prayer to the Holy Spirit, "O Heavenly King, O Comforter," until Pentecost! Instead we sing the Ascension Troparion.

Explore our Pascha to Pentecost Section, for resources and articles on Resurrection of Christ, the Sundays of Pascha, Ascension, and much more.

MEDITATIONS by our pastor, Fr. Steven Kostoff.  Fr. Steven's own meditations, interspersed with brief insights from saints and fathers of the Orthodox Church, present a golden thread through the Paschal Season, nowhere more evident than in these featured articles:
