Harrisburg parishes gather for the feast of St. John Maximovitch - 07/02/09

On Thursday, July 2 our greater-Harrisburg Orthodox community gathered at Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church to celebrate Divine Liturgy on the feast of St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco. Concelebrating were Frs. Daniel Ressetar, Timothy Hojnicki, and Stephen Vernak. Those present were annointed with holy oil from the lampada which hangs above his holy relics in San Francisco. We pray that in this "age of coldness and unbelief", the prayers of St. John will help illumine and "inkindle in our hearts the fire of love for Christ".
