Feast of St. Peter and Paul


On July 12, on the feast of the Holy Major Apostles Peter and Paul, our Parish family had a nice celebration in our temple. The Divine Liturgy was headed by our Rector, Archpriest Igor Tarasov. Following the Gospel lesson he preached a homily in Russian reflecting upon the lives of St. Peter and Paul, on their human differences but their common firm faith and their holy lives according to that faith. Stressing that the holy Church, being the Body of Christ, is a divine and human organism, Fr. Igor pointed out that Christ built His Church upon the Apostles and their faith, solid like a rock. Thus today’s Church is supposed to be built on our faith.

After the Liturgy dismissal the Rector congratulated parishioners on the end of the Apostolic fast and on the occasion of the celebrated holy day.
