Welcome to Prophet Elias Greek Orthodox Church! We are happy you are here. Please feel free to explore our wonderful programs and activities as well as the rich resources we have made available to familiarize you with the Christian Orthodox Faith.
Our hope for you is to come to know Christ and His Church. Our mission is to help you on this path to enrich your knowledge, discover the Hellenic tradition as well as the rich treasures of the Christian Orthodox faith. We welcome you with open arms into our warm and family-friendly parish.
Prophet Elias Church is included among the Parishes of the Direct Archdiocesan District, under the direct authority, supervision and pastoral care of His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, Primate of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese in America.
Founded in 1940, Prophet Elias Church, centrally located just north of New York City in Westchester County, is the only Greek Orthodox Church in the City of Yonkers. Our Parish serves the Orthodox faithful in the western part of the county, along the Hudson River, starting from the upper Bronx and extending as far north as Ossining and surrounding areas.
We hope you will find the programs and activities we offer helpful and rewarding.
A Message of Thanks
from Father Nicholas
Many thanks to all our parishioners and friends who helped and participated in the 75th Anniversary Gala. The dance was well-attended. We enjoyed seeing our young parishioners join their parents and grandparents in this community celebration. Thanks also to the many people who supported our fundraising efforts by buying and distributing tickets.
Congratulations to our event chairpersons and Parish Council Members who planned and hosted this fine evening.
May the Lord who has guided this church for the past 75 years, continue to bless us and strengthen us to carry His work on earth for many years to come.
May the Lord bless you through the intercessions of Prophet Elias and be with you all.
My love, prayers and blessings be with you,

Sing to the Lord all the world! Worship the Lord with joy; come before him with happy songs.
Acknowledgethat the Lord is God. He made us and we belong to him;
We are his people we are his flock.

The Lord is good his love is eternal and his faithfulness last forever. ( Psalm 100:1-5)
