1st Archpastoral Visit of Metropolitan Herman

Divine Liturgy / Festal Meal with Met. Herman - 07/08/07

On the weekend of July 7-8, 2007, His Beatitude Metropolitan Herman, the Archbishop of Washington and New York, visited Christ the Savior for the celebration of the liturgical services, a meeting with the Parish Council, and a festal meal with all the faithful parishioners and visitors.

The weekend began with Great Vespers on Saturday evening, after which His Beatitude shared light refreshments and discussion with the parishioners.  Then he met with Fr. John and the Parish Council, offering his guidance and blessings for their continued good work.

On Sunday, following the Divine Liturgy, Metropolitan Herman formally installed Fr. John Parsells as the Rector of the parish.  Then in celebration of this historic weekend, the faithful gathered at a local resort hotel for a festal brunch.

Many thanks to all who made this weekend such a success!  Glory to God!

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.”
