His Grace Bishop MARK visits Christ the Saviour - 01/19/14

On Sunday, January 19th His Grace, Bishop Mark made a pastoral visit to Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church in Harrisburg. The visit came following his nomination by a Special Assembly to be our Diocesan Bishop this past Friday in Bethlehem - Axios! We look forward to his formal election by the Holy Synod. We were also blessed by a visit from Fr. Alexander and Kh. Olga Atty, as well as the enrollment of Cindy Shorthall into the Catechumenate of the Orthodox Church! Following the festive Liturgy, His Grace joined our parish at a special luncheon prepared by our parish Men's Club. Later in the afternoon Bishop Mark led our local Pan-Orthodox community at the 6th Annual Great Blessing of the Susquehanna - Glory to God for all things!
