Christ the Saviour Celebrates the Feast of Pentecost - 06/04/17
On Sunday, June 4th the faithful of Christ the Saviour celebrated the great and holy feast of Pentecost. Before the Divine Liturgy Kenneth and Ita (Stephanie) Snyder were received into the Holy Church through the Sacrament of Chrismation - glory to God! May they be granted many years! We also welcome Bill Marianes (Stewardship Calling Ministry), who offered an inspiring homily on the awesome invitation we have been given to participate in the work of Christ through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Following the Divine Liturgy and Kneeling Vespers of Pentecost we enjoyed our 5th Annual International Day. We were treated to the cuisine and aesthetic that comprise to our culturally diverse community - united in the Trinity, citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven! A special thanks to coordinator Angie DiFlorio and all of our parishioners who offered food this year!
Troparion of the Feast: Blessed art Thou, O Christ our God; Who hast revealed the fishermen as most wise by sending down upon them the Holy Spirit. Through them Thou didst draw the world into Thy net// O Lover of man, glory to Thee!
