On the weekend of July 6-7th, the faithful welcomed His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon for his second archpastoral visit to Christ the Savior Mission.
On Saturday evening, Met. Tikhon met with parishioners for discussion before the Great Vespers service. On Sunday morning, at the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy, Met. Tikhon blessed an icon of the Saints of North America, which had been given to the parish by Archpriest David Straut.
Afterwards, Met. Tikhon presented Protopresbyter Daniel and Matushka Dunia Hubiak with an award in honor of their 60+ years of service to the Church in various capacities, including as the distinguished founders of the Mission.
Following the divine services, everyone enjoyed fellowship, a barbeque and swimming.
Appreciation is extended to His Beatitude as well as Subdeacon Roman, who accompanied him, together with all of the people who helped to make the weekend so enjoyable. Glory and thanks be to God for all things!
