The day began with a 3:30am departure from the church in Dagsboro, DE. Then the group traveled by bus from St. Stephen's Orthodox Cathedral in Philadelphia, PA to the monastery in South Canaan, PA.
Following the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy with Metropolitan Jonah, there was a memorial service in which we especially remembered those who gave their lives in service to America. After lunch, we venerated the Sitka Icon of the Mother of God and participated in an Akathist to St. Alexis of Wilkes-Barre, PA. Then we visited the museum dedicated to Orthodoxy in America and the St. Tikhon's Bookstore. Finally, before departure, there was a healing service with annointing of oil.
Many thanks to those who made the pilgrimage. Glory and thanks be to God!
