We are a parish of the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of America and are located in Metairie, Louisiana (just outside New Orleans). The Very Reverend Father Peter Nugent is our current priest. Our church membership currently includes over 100 people who participate in regular liturgical activities as well as our church school and youth group, Men’s Fellowship, and Ladies Guild.

As a multi-ethnic, Orthodox Christian parish, we welcome persons of all walks of life. Our members come from across the world including Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine, Russia, Ukraine, Serbia, Romania, Ethiopia, Greece, and the United States. About half of our members are cradle Orthodox while the other half are local converts from Roman Catholicism or Protestantism.

St. Basil is also home to the New Orleans Russian Community Center (NORCC). It offers Russian language courses and classes on Russian cultural arts, folk dance, theater, music and chess. Serving as a focal point for the local Russian community, NORCC provides programs and social activities to enrich the people it serves. To learn more about NORCC or to enroll in any of its programs, go to

Whether you are visiting the New Orleans area or are a resident of our great city looking for a new church home, we welcome you.
