On Sunday, January 29, 2017, the Orthodox Church and our parish welcomed its newest member Pasquale Joachim La Monaca, the son of Peter and Justine La Monaca. Many blessed, healthy and fruitful years to them!
Welcome home, welcome into Christ's Holy Church and His Community!
At midnight, from Jan. 18 to Jan. 19, at the Feast of Theophany, bishop John served the Great Blessing of Waters, blessing the Atlantic ocean. After the service, those who were brave enough, took a dip in the blessed, even if cold, waters of the ocean.
