Spiritual Retreat: "The Treasures of Ancient Christianity"
image

On the weekend of September 6-7, 2014, Christ the Savior Mission hosted a spiritual retreat entitled, "The Treasures of Ancient Christianity".

His Beatitude Metropolitan TIKHON led the retreat, offering a lecture and question/answer period on the shared riches of the 1st millennium of Christianity.

The Synodal Youth Choir, under the directorship of Alexander Cooley, performed a concert with hymns from the ancient Liturgy of the Church as well as sang the responses during the divine services.

The retreat was combined with the Diocesan Day for the Archdiocese of Washington, and we were very pleased to welcome many clergy and faithful who travel out to the mission.  We express our thanks to them all as well as all our visitors from near and far for coming to the retreat. 

In addition to the lecture, concert, question/answer session, and divine services, there was a barbeque and lamb roast, fellowship, swimming, and activities for children.

On Sunday, during the Divine Liturgy, His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon enrolled Michelle Miller into the catechumenate as the first step to sacramental reception into the Orthodox Church.  We ask the Lord's continued blessings upon Michelle as well as her entire family!

We give thanks to Almighty God, Metropolitan Tikhon, Protodeacon Joseph, Subdeacon Roman Ostash, the Synodal Youth Choir and all those who worked together with Him to make such a blessed weekend possible!

St. Nicholas Day - 12/06/21

On Monday, December 6, 2021, we celebrated the feast of St. Nicholas, Archbishop of Myra, the Wonder-worker (+343). We were priviledged to be able to venerate the relics of St. Nicholas, which were brought by Archpriest Joseph Oleynik, who received them from Metropolitan Theodosius. Following the Divine Liturgy "golden" chocolate coins were distributed to the faithful as a reminder of the saint's great charity and practice of anonymous gift-giving, which we all do well to emulate. We wish you all a joyous feast of St. Nicholas! For more information, please see stnicholascenter.org.

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.”
