Rectory Blessing / Open House - 01/10/16
On Sunday, January 10th, Protopresbyter Daniel blessed the rectory in the Parish Center. Following the service for the annual blessing of a home, there was an open house in the rectory. Appreciation is expressed to Fr. Daniel as well as all who attended, prayed, prepared food, and shared in fellowship.
On Sunday, January 10th, we kept the custom of the Vasilopeta (St. Basil's Bread). This year the coins were received by David McAlpin, Christiana Milite, and Cheryl Kokkinos. May the Lord grant them many blessed years!
On Saturday, January 9th, faithful from Christ the Savior Mission joined St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Ocean City, MD, for the annual blessing of the Atlantic Ocean. Many thanks to Fr. Vasileos and the community of St. George for hosting this wonderful event to the glory of God!
On Sunday, December 27th, children from the mission put on a small Christmas Pageant following the Divine Liturgy. The performance was enjoyed by all, and appreciation is expressed the organizers as well as parents. During the coffee hour, after the pageant, the community congratulated Protopresbyter Daniel Hubiak on his upcoming 89th birthday, wishing him "Many Blessed Years!"
As the faithful gathered to celebrate the Nativity of the Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ according to the flesh, we were pleased to congratulate Chad Fortin who was enrolled into the catechumenate during the Christmas Liturgy! We humbly ask the Lord's continued blessing upon him and you all for a joyous, peaceful and grace-filled festive season and New Year. Christ is born! Glorify Him!
On Sunday, December 13th, three new sets of altar server vestments - red, blue, and green - were blessed. Two additional white vestments were also blessed, making 10 vestments of various sizes in each color for our altar servers. The remaining two liturgical colors - gold and purple - are hoped to be ready by February, 2016. We thank the donors, the tailors from the Republic of Georgia, as well as those who place the order and assisted with transit. May the Lord bless one and all!
