This was St. Nektarios Vespers November 6, 2016. At the end of the Service, Seminarian Simon Menya from Uganda spoke to the assembled faithful of over one hundred twenty. He related two incidents in his life that brought him close to St. Nektarios. He then spoke of the Feast of St. Nektarios in Uganda and his village. Preparation for the feast begins four weeks before November 9th. People spend this time helping the needy, visiting hospitals, the sick and prisons. He said there are four times a year that the people have meat: Pascha, Christmas, Election Day and St. Nektarios Feast. The faith and love that filled our church that night was powerful. May we cultivate it and bring it to a hungry and thirsty world. Plan now for Sunday November 5, 2017 to come on pilgrimage to the relics of St. Nektarios.</p></div> Christ the Savior Orthodox Church http://www.christsaviorchurch.org/public/sv/gallery.php?ssid=142 25th Anniversary of Christ the Savior Parish http://christsaviorchurch.org/public/sv/gallery.php?ssid=134 Sat, 11 Mar 2017 17:21:57 -0500 <div><img border="0" hspace="5" vspace="0" align="left" src="http://christsaviorchurch.org/display_image.php?ext=JPG&relativeimage=images/Photo%20Gallery/2016-Photos/25th-Anniversary/DPPW_0010.JPG&archive=0&final_h=684&final_w=1024&percent=100"><p>On June 11th, Christ the Savior Parish was blessed to celebrate our 25th anniversary, with Archbishop Nikhon and so many friends and family.

This was St. Nektarios Vespers November 6, 2016. At the end of the Service, Seminarian Simon Menya from Uganda spoke to the assembled faithful of over one hundred twenty. He related two incidents in his life that brought him close to St. Nektarios. He then spoke of the Feast of St. Nektarios in Uganda and his village. Preparation for the feast begins four weeks before November 9th. People spend this time helping the needy, visiting hospitals, the sick and prisons. He said there are four times a year that the people have meat: Pascha, Christmas, Election Day and St. Nektarios Feast. The faith and love that filled our church that night was powerful. May we cultivate it and bring it to a hungry and thirsty world. Plan now for Sunday November 5, 2017 to come on pilgrimage to the relics of St. Nektarios.</p></div> Christ the Savior Orthodox Church http://christsaviorchurch.org/news_161213_1.html Summer at Christ the Savior http://christsaviorchurch.org/news_160903_1.html Thu, 23 Feb 2017 16:13:43 -0500 <div><img border="0" hspace="5" vspace="0" align="left" src="http://christsaviorchurch.org/display_image.php?ext=jpg&relativeimage=images/Photo%20Gallery/2016-Photos/Summer-at-Christ-the-Savior/rainbow.jpg&archive=0&final_h=234&final_w=312&percent=50"><p>Summer at Christ the Savior included our annual kids club and the celebration of the Dormition.</p></div> Christ the Savior Orthodox Church http://christsaviorchurch.org/news_160903_1.html
