Blessings from the Holy Mountain - 02/09/20

On Sunday, February 9, the faithful were presented with Prayers Ropes, Icons, and Incense from the Holy Mountain of Athos. These gifts were brought back by Michael Cook, who recently made pilgrimage to Greece and the Holy Mountain, bringing back with him these items for the parishioners as a blessing. Among the monasteries Michael visited was Xenophontos, a 10th century monastery dedicated to St. George, where a close friend of Michael's and a number of Americans have made their spiritual home.

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.”
