Blessing of New Crosses
image

On Sunday, August 1, 2021, the feast of the Procession of the Cross, two new hand crosses were blessed at the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy. The hand cross is kept on the altar table and used at certain moments during the liturgy, most noticeably at the dismissal when the priest holds it in his right hand as he gives the final blessing and then offers it to the faithful for veneration. Coserving with Fr. John were Priest George Sharonoff and Protodeacon Gregory Moser. Following the blessing of the new crosses, Archpriest Joseph Oleynik wished Fr. John many blessed years on the 15 anniversary of his assignment to Christ the Savior, August 1, 2006.

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.”
