Holy Transfiguration 2023 - 08/06/23

Saturday evening, August 5 at Holy Transfiguration Cathedral in Denver - we attended Festal Vespers and joined in the cathedral's 125th anniversary celebration. Archbishop Benjamin was also present, as was Fr. Christodoulos of the Brotherhood of St. George Monastery in Denver. Fr. Thomas Soroka, rector of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Pittsburgh, PA was a special guest. He gave several talks during the three days of festivities, including one talk Saturday evening. Finally, we learned that Dn. John, our deacon, is going to be raised to the level of Protodeacon the next time Archbishop Benjamin visits our mission. Congratulations to Dn. John!

Sunday, August 6: Divine Liturgy for the feast of the Transfiguration. Fruit was blessed, the Transfiguration (represented by its icon) was magnified and Father also blessed the parishioners by spraying them with holy water.
