Christ the Saviour hosts Fr. Christopher Rocknage and Pan-Orthodox Choir - 11/23/2014
On Sunday, November 23, 2014, Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church hosted the annual IOCC/OCMC Charity Event for the local Pan-Orthodox brotherhood, the Orthodox Council of Churches of South Central Pennsylvania (OCCSCP). Over the past 15 years the OCCSCP has raised over $160,000 in support of these wonderful organizations.
For a second year we were treated to a Pan-Orthodox choral concert. This years concert was entitled "Praise the Lord". The adult choir, under the direction of Fr. Christopher Rocknage (pastor of St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church and president of OCCSCP) sang beautifully and prayerfully, as did our combined youth choir, under the direction of Nina Radonovic (also of St. Nicholas).
We were inspired by a special presentation given by Kenneth Kidd of OCMC, who spoke to us about the grace-filled work of Orthodox missionaries around the world, and especially about the growing mission-field in Guatemala. Following the concert and presentation, we enjoyed a time of fellowship in the parish hall. Glory to God for all things!
