Blessing of Chariots
On Sunday, July 12th, the faithful of Christ the Savior gathered for the Divine Liturgy followed by the Blessing of Automobiles. This annual blessing occurs near the feast of the Prophet Elias (who ascended as if into heaven in a fiery chariot). During the Divine Liturgy, Patricia McAlpin was received into the catechumenate, the process by which one is joined to the Orthodox Church. We congratulate her and her husband David, askings the Lord's continued blessings upon them!
