Archbishop MARK visits Christ the Saviour - 08/16/2020
On Sunday, August 16th, on which we celebrate the "Image Not Made by Hands", the third feast of the Saviour in August, His Eminence Archbishop Mark made an Archpastoral visit to the community of Christ the Saviour in Harrisburg. Due to the ongoing pandemic, and the desire for our entire church family and guests to be present for the ordinations of Rdr. Vladimer Kellachow, and Subdeacon Andrew Katerman; the blessing of the double orarion being bestowed upon our faithful deacons, Dn. Peter Staller and Dn. John Shingara; and the Synodal award of the Mitre being bestowed upon the Rt. Rev. Daniel Kovalak, services were held outdoors. "Many Years" and "Axios/Worthy" to these faithful servants of Christ.
Troparion of the "Image Not Made by Hands": We venerate Thy most-pure image, O good One and ask forgiveness of our transgressions, O Christ our God. Of Thy good will Thou wast pleased to ascend the Cross in the flesh and deliver Thy creatures from the bondage of the enemy. Therefore, with thanksgiving we cry aloud to Thee: Thou hast filled all things with joy, O our Savior, for Thou didst come to save the world!
