Dormition of the Virgin Mary
image
On Sunday, August 15th, the Mission celebrated the Dormition of Virgin Mary, which commemorates her death, burial, and resurrection, following the footsteps of her Divine Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

It was a special celebration this year as the feast fell upon a Sunday. Among the many visitors which packed the church, we welcomed Protodeacon Gregory Moser, who assisted with the Divine Services. At the conclusion of the Liturgy, the faithful received blessed flowers as a reminder of the beauty and sweet fragrance of the feast.

Below are photo galleries from the Great Vespers with Litiya, served on Saturday evening, and the Divine Liturgy with Blessing of Flowers, served on Sunday morning.

We extend to you all our greetings on this joyous feastday!

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.”
