Parish Patronal Feast of St. George

On May 6 the Church commemorates Holy Great Victorious Martyr George. It is a Patronal feast of our Parish.

St. George parish family had a solemn and beautiful celebration. It was headed by our Archpastor, Most Rev. John, Bishop of Naro-Fominsk. His Grace arrived at 10:30 AM and was greeted by our Parish Warden Olga Roussanow at the entrance to the temple. Bishop John entered the church where he was met by the Rector, Archpriest Igor Tarasov. He then celebrated solemn Divine Liturgy. The Liturgy was concelebrated by our Rector, as well as cathedral protodeacon Igor Panachev and deacon Mark Rashkov.

At the end of the Liturgy His Grace congratulated the Rector and parishioners on the joyful Patronal feast of St. George. As a response to the Bishop’s speech Archpriest Igor Tarasov greeted His Grace in our temple.

Celebration continued on the church property where our ladies organized a picnic. Our Rector, Archpriest Igor had a toast to the honor of His Grace, Bishop John.

Everybody enjoyed delicious food and a nice company.
