A Church at Its Crossroads

In the village of St. Helena in Pender County, Saints Peter and Paul Russian Orthodox Church is hanging on thanks to the devotion of its 3 remaining parishioners. The church and its congregation were the center of a small northern European agricultural community created by Hugh MacRae in 1905 near Burgaw, NC. The church was built in 1932 and was the only Russian Orthodox church in North Carolina. Today, the congregation is down to 3 members but they faithfully keeping their religious tradition alive.
