Pan-Orthodox Sunday of Orthodoxy - 02/25/18

Each year, our combined churches organize on this same day to celebrate the Sunday of Orthodoxy with parishioners and clergy from various canonical jurisdictions.  This year the celebration was held beginning at 4:30 pm at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church with the main celebrant and homilist that evening was our own Bishop of the Eastern American diocese, His Grace Irinej.  His Grace enlightened us all in attendance with his special Lenten sermon today.  Our own Fr. George was in attendance as well celebrating with all of the various clergy including His Eminence Metropolitan Savas of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese.   Metropolitan Savas also addressed the congregation this evening and eloquently introduced His Grace Bishop Irinej.   Following the vespers service, a delicious meal was served by the local parish philoptokos.
