St. Luke Orthodox Church
Antiochian Women


We are a Sisterhood at St. Luke Orthodox Church in Erie, Colorado, striving to serve Christ through serving others.

The Antiochian Orthodox Christian Women of North America was founded in 1973 through the vision of His Eminence Metropolitan Philip (Saliba) of Thrice-Blessed Memory. Today, it is an organization of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese and is led by His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph.

Our purpose is to develop among the women: 

His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph once said, “When everyone left our Lord Jesus Christ alone on the cross, the women were there. Can you see how important the women are? You are the myrrhbearing women!” 

Participation in Antiochian Women can include every woman in the Archdiocese in that we are all called to be members by our personal acceptance of the charge “take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it (Col 4:17).

Without exception, each and every one of us is called to serve our Lord and our church in ways that allow God’s love to shine through us, for the benefit of others.

Antiochian Women's Prayer

In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

0 Christ our God, we are all pledged to serve Thee with our whole being.

Help us to continue to work for Thee through our Church without seeking praise, without seeking personal gain, without judging others, without a feeling that we have worked hard enough and now must allow ourselves rest.

Give us strength to do what is right and help us to go on striving and to remember that activities are not the main thing in life.

The most important thing is to have our hearts directed and attuned to Thee.
