Memorial Day Pilgrimage

Pilgrimage to St. Tikhon's - 05/26/08

On Monday, May 26th, a small contingent from the Mission made its way to St. Tikhon's Orthodox Monastery in South Canaan, Pennsylvania, for the annual Memorial Day Pilgrimage.

Following the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy and Memorial Service, we were able to venerate the miraculous Kursk-Root Icon of the Mother of God and the relics of St. Seraphim of Sarov. After a picnic style lunch we toured the museum dedicated to Orthodoxy in America and visited the seminary bookstore before heading home to Delmarva.

Glory be to God for a safe and enjoyable pilgrimage to St. Tikhon's Monastery!

Blessing of Chariots - 07/24/22

On Sunday, July 24, 2022, at the end of the Divine Liturgy, we had the annual Blessing of Chariots (cars, trucks, bikes, etc).  It is a custom of Orthodox Christians to have their cars blessed both when newly acquired and on or near the feast of the Prophet Elias (July 20th), as he ascended as if into heaven on a fiery chariot. We thank God for a truly blessed day!

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.”
