Blessing of Trike Motorcycle - 05/25/20

On Memorial Day, May 25, 2020, we blessed the Trike Motorcycle of one of our parishioners, Justin Barkewich, who is also a veteran from a family of four consecutive generations of military service. We thank Justin and his family for their service and sacrifices for us all.  It is the custom of Orthodox Christians to have their vehicles blessed on acquisition and annually.  We prayerfully wish Justin safe travels, asking the Lord to bless, protect, and direct his way to the Heavenly Kingdom!

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.”
