"Come and see" (from the Holy Gospel according to St. John 1:39)
Located in beautiful Camarillo, St. Demetrios has served Ventura County, California for over 35 years. St. Demetrios was founded in 1970 as the Greek Orthodox Church of Ventura County and found a home in 1977 by purchasing the Oxnard Air Force base chapel at the Camarillo Airport.
The parish became the St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in 1980. Today the parish aptly reflects the American experience and comprises approximately 200 families representing at least 12 different nationalities, all witnessing to the Good News of Jesus Christ, striving to reflect His love, and living according to the ancient Christian principles and disciplines of the Eastern Orthodox Christian Church.
In 2004, in response to our growing community, the Parish purchased land to build a new church, meeting hall, and chapel on a 4-acre parcel near Santa Rosa and Woodcreek Road in the Mission Oaks area of Camarillo. Work on the new property began in the fall of 2013.
All are welcome at St. Demetrios. The church hosts weekly meetings for Bible study sessions, baking groups, Boy Scout and Cub Scout troops, a women’s group, potlucks and barbecues, and Family Integrated Religious Education…all to create a welcoming family atmosphere.
Service: office hours 9:30-2:30 Monday - Thursday
