Greek Orthodox Church (Archdiocese of America)

In the 1920s, a small group of Greek Orthodox immigrants came to Norristown, an area adjacent to Jeffersonville, to establish a new life for themselves and their families. By the early 1960s, they founded the Hellenic Civic Association (HCA) with almost forty children. In the 1970s, the HCA established its first spiritual home in the basement of the Commonwealth Bank in Norristown. Later, the community purchased a multi-purpose room on a property that also included five apartments which were rented for income. After seven years, the property was sold and a church was purchased on Centre Avenue in Jeffersonville. By 1980, the community had grown to over eighty families. In 1984, the parish purchased a 4.5 acre property on Marshall Street in Jeffersonville. In 1991, these families under the spiritual leadership of Father Limberakis purchased the current eight acre property and two years later broke ground on a 16,000 square foot church and cultural center.

Today, Saint Sophia is a growing parish of the Metropolis of New Jersey with almost 200 families. The parishioners of Saint Sophia have decided that now is the time to build a church proper along with additional facilities in order to further support its growth. The church has active youth groups and Catechism School. Many of these students also participate in the Saint Sophia Greek Language School. These classes provide the youth of the parish with the opportunity to learn about Greek culture, heritage, language, and most importantly, faith.

Orthros is celebrated every Sunday morning at 8:45 a.m. and the Divine Liturgy at 10:00 am.

Services are in Greek and English.
