Icon of St. Silouan the Athonite Blessed is the soul that loves her brother: the Spirit of the Lord lives manifest within her, affording peace and gladness, and she weeps for the whole world.St. Silouan the Athonite
Hymn from Orthros of Forgiveness Sunday

The time is now at hand for us to start upon the spiritual contest and to gain the victory over the demonic powers. Let us put on the armor of abstinence and clothe ourselves in the glory of the angels. With boldness Moses spoke to the Creator, and he heard the voice of the invisible God. In Thy love for man, O Lord, grant us with the same boldness to venerate Thy Passion and Thy Holy Resurrection.

Bishop BASIL - November 2005

View Slideshow

Bishop BASIL visited our congregation for the very first time on 7 November 2005, and he presided at the service of Great Vespers for the Feast of the Synaxis of the Holy Archangels. Afterwards we had a delightful banquet, and many people stayed to enjoy the food and fellowship. This was a great time in the life of our Orthodox Christian community.
