Saint Elizabeth the New Martyr Orthodox Church
Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia
Somerville, New Jersey
Welcome to Our Parish

The Orthodox Church of Saint Elizabeth the New-Martyr serves Orthodox Christians in Central New Jersey. It is a Mission Parish of the Diocese of Eastern America and New York of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia.

Founded in 1998 in Somerville, New Jersey, our Mission Parish acquired its own church building in 2004 in the Princeton area at 38 Princeton Avenue, Rocky Hill. After being in that historic church building for four years, we had extensive renovations done to our church building which took four months - from late May through the beginning of October 2008. The inside of the church is now more beautiful than ever. We have enlarged the altar area, had a proper iconastasis built, improved our choir loft, and put in in a new ceiling, refinished the floors, and installed new lighting, ventilation, and airconditioning systems.

Should you want more information about St Elizabeth's Church, you may call our priest, Fr David Straut, at (908) 203-1252.
