On January 7, on the feast of the Nativity of the Lord (Christmas) we had a beautiful liturgical celebration in St. George Church. Our Rector, Archpriest Igor Tarasov served the Divine Liturgy.
Following the Scripture readings Fr. Igor proclaimed the Catechetical sermon of St. John Chrysostom on the Nativity.
After the Divine Liturgy the Rector congratulated all parishioners on the occasion of the glorious holy day and wished them that God’s blessings may be bestowed on them in their spiritual and earthly lives.
Celebration was continued at the nearby Pier 25A restaurant. Parishioners had an opportunity to congratulate Fr. Igor on the occasion of the 24th Anniversary of his priestly ordination. One of our altar servers, Elisej Flora had a speech greeting Fr. Igor. Traditional “Mnogaia leta” was sung.
