Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
May the Lord bless you!
Come! Give thanks to God and to our Heavenly Patron, St. George!
We celebrate the founding of the Church built for St. George in his hometown, Lydda on Wednesday evening with Vigil at 6:30 p.m. (confession at 6 p.m.) and Thursday morning with Divine Liturgy at 10 a.m.
This is also the anniversary of the pouring of the foundation of our new Church, as well as the arrival of the relics of St. George which were given to us by Abbot Luke of Holy Trinity Monastery in 2012.
Moreover, it the 29th anniversary of the founding of our parish.
We have much to be thankful for!
Also, yesterday marked the 100th anniversary of the martyrdom of the first priest of the Communist Yoke in Russia, St. John Kochurov (see his life here: https://www.sjksdcma.org/
Our diocese has a wonderful charitable organization named in his honor, the St. John Kochurov Society. It supports Youth, Missions and Monasteries in our diocese.
Please be so kind as to join this wonderful organization. Your support is important to many and will bring great blessings to you!
