All Saints of West Point
An Orthodox Christian Online Outreach Site
The purpose of All Saints is to share the 2,000 year old witness of Orthodox Christianity with West Point, Virginia and the surrounding area. This faith was established by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and His Apostles in the first century and continues in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and North Eastern Africa.
The Synaxis of All Saints is in the center surrounded by four Jerusalem Crosses. At the corners are the following saints (clockwise from the top left): Moses the Black (Ethiopian), Herman of Alaska, Raphael (Hawaweeny) of Brooklyn, and Blessed Olga of Alaska.
