Christ the Saviour Welcomes Archbishop MARK - 12/16/18
On Sunday, December 16th the community of Christ the Saviour (Harrisburg, PA) welcomed our Diocesan bishop, His Eminence Archbishop Mark for the Divine Liturgy. At the Liturgy he bestowed the Mitre (priestly crown) on Fr. Daniel Resseter in recognition of his long and distinguished service to the Orthodox Church, our parish, and numerous other religious and civic institutions. Axios! He is worthy! May God grant the Mitred Archpriest Daniel, M. Theodora, and their family many blessed years!
We also welcomed Fr. John Parker (Dean of St. Tikhon Seminary); Dn. Moses Locke, M. Christie and their children (our FOCA Adopted Seminary family, also from St. Tikhon's); as well as Mother Christophora (Abbess of Holy Transfiguration Monastery). At the conclusion of the Liturgy the parish presented the Locke's with items from their Christmas "wish list" - glory to God!
At fellowship the parish presented the Ressetar's with a "get-away" to NYC, and presented M. Theodora with a token of our appreciation for her many years of labor and service in Christ's vineyard - a tiara!
