Show Low and the surrounding area finally has its own Orthodox Christian mission church. Started in 2018, Divine Liturgy has been celebrated in the White Mountain area now for over three years. Off the beaten path, we celebrated Liturgy ‘out among the pines’ in the beautiful forest cathedral provided by nature to glorify God. It is still a beautiful place to worship the Lord! The mission has gone through some changes, the most noticeable is the name! While in the Vicariate for Palestinian/Jordanian churches, the parish was first named St. Peter the Aleut, first martyr in the Americas. Later it was changed to Holy Archangels Orthodox Mission. When the parish came into the Russian Orthodox Church outside Russia, in order to avoid confusion with another Holy Archangels ROCOR Church (in Phoenix!), the name was changed – once and for all – to St. Herman of Alaska, the holy hermit, and glorious wonderworker of Alaska and all America.
