Patronal Feast of Christ the Savior
image
Each year on August 16th, when the Church commemorates the revealing of the Icon Not-Made-By-Hands, Christ the Savior Mission celebrates its parish feastday. The celebration this year was especially joyous as the Mission, established in 2000, sent up its thanks to God for 10 years of His Almighty protection and blessings!

Worshipping with the faithful of Christ the Savior were family and friends who journeyed to Delmarva for the festivities and the baptism of Nicholas Parsells. Among them were: Archpriest James Parsells, Protodeacon Paul Sokol, and members of Ss. Peter & Paul Orthodox Church in Manville, NJ; Archpriest David Straut and members of St. Elizabeth the New Martyr Orthodox Church in Rocky Hill, NJ; and Archpriest Michael Koblosh and Mat. Nadia from All Saints of America Orthodox Church in Alexandria, VA.

The baptism of Nicholas Parsells was performed by Fr. David Straut, who also shared his pastoral wisdom in an excellent homily. The godparents were Reader Gregory Maxey and Diaconissa Patricia Sokol, friends of Fr. John and Mat. Emily from New Jersey. Following the Divine Services, people made their way to the rectory for an open house.

We thank all those who made the special effort to be with us for the 10th Patronal Feast of Christ the Savior and the baptism of Nicholas Parsells. Likewise, we ask that the Lord God will strengthen and preserve them, together with the newly-illumined servant of God, Nicholas, and all the members and supporters of Christ the Savior Orthodox Church for many blessed years!

Blessing of Chariots - 07/19/21

On Sunday, July 18, 2021, at the end of the Divine Liturgy, we had the annual Blessing of Chariots (cars, trucks, bikes, etc).  The blessing was served by Archpriest Joseph Oleynik, Archpriest Timothy Hojnicki, and Priest John Parsells. 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.”
