Praying with our Hierarch

Since last Wednesday (June 24, 2015) we have been blessed to have Bishop Gregory with us. Over the course of his days here, he had his own meetings and itinerary, but made sure he dedicated time and energy to be with his staff. What a joy to sit and talk with His Grace about various things in the religious and secular world.

While His Grace was here, Father Stephen was off site taking his sons Sam and Nick to visit family and to take Sam to an Orthodox music camp. Since Father Stephen was gone, His Grace served the Divine Liturgy on Sunday, serving as a priest. This meant he did not wear the traditional sakos, but rather the priestly pheloneon (the cape looking vestment). The Divine Liturgy was incredibly beautiful and intimate. After Divine Liturgy, His Grace gave a wonderful homily comparing and contrasting what is and is not Gods will. Certainly a thought provoking and spiritually moving homily, to say the least! His Grace left Camp on Sunday afternoon! We're looking forward to spending more time with him later in the summer.

Please enjoy the pictures below of the service! When we get videos posted, we'll attach a hyperlink to this article, along with a link on our website and Facebook page.
