March For Life
On Thursday, January 22nd, members of Christ the Savior journeyed to the nation's capital to participate in the March For Life. The March for Life is an annual pro-life rally protesting abortion, held in Washington D.C. on the anniversary of the decision in the United States Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade. This year, the 35th occurrence of the March, the weather was 42 degrees and clear which helped numbers spike to 420,000 (estimated by American Life Leauge's crowd counters).

Each year Orthodox Christians march side by side with members of other faith communities, as well as those who believe simply in the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all people. His Beatitude Metropolitan Jonah addressed the crowd during the rally, expressing the unequivocally strong support of the Orthodox Church in defending life as God's gift which requires not only respect but also legislative protection. Among other things, he spoke of the healing and forgiveness God offers to those affected by abortion - a healing needed not only by individual persons but also our entire nation - should we choose to accept it.

Many thanks to those who attended, marched for Life, and took the photos shared below.  May the Lord bless your efforts and witness!

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.”
