Cross Dive + Pool Opening - 05/13/22

Each year the faithful of Christ the Savior prayerfully ask the Lord God Almighty to bless the parish pool and the fellowship it provides, throwing in the life-giving Cross of Christ to sanctify the water. The precious Cross is then retrieved by the children of the parish, remembering the words of the Lord, "Anyone who does not take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me." We invite you all to come enjoy the pool and fellowship, and much more so to take up your cross and participate in the Life of Christ! The Cross Dive and Pool Opening are scheduled for Sunday, May 22, 2022. Everyone is welcome!

What is the Orthodox Church?

“The Orthodox Christian Church is evangelical, but not Protestant.
It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman.
It is not denominational, it is pre-denominational.
It has believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for the
Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost nearly 2,000 years ago.”
