Celebrating the Feast of the Transfiguration - 2022 - 08/07/2022

St. George celebrated the Feast of the Transfiguration on Sunday, August 7th.  (This feast normally falls on August 6th, however this year St. George transferred the celebration of this feast day to Sunday, August 7th). As is common practice in the Orthodox Church, grapes and other fruits (and vegetables) were blessed after Divine Liturgy.

The Troparion for this feast:  You were transfigured on the mountain, O Christ God, / revealing Your glory to Your disciples as far as they could bear it. / Let Your everlasting Light also shine upon us sinners, / through the prayers of the Theotokos. / O Giver of Light, glory to You!

Celebrating the Feast of the Procession of the Holy Cross - 07/31/2022

St. George celebrated the Feast of the Procession of the Life-Giving Cross on Sunday, July 31st with a procession of the Cross around the church after Divine Liturgy.  (This feast was transferred this year from its normal commemoration date of August 1st). The origin of this feast is explained from the following:  “Because of the illnesses which occur during the month of August, it was customary at Constantinople to carry the Precious Wood of the Cross in procession throughout the city for its sanctification, and to deliver it from sickness.”  Click onto the more information link below to view a few photos.

Gifts received from Nativity of the Holy Virgin Mary Church (Waterbury) - 07/10/2022

On Monday, July 11th, a small delegation from St. George welcomed Father John Hopko and Reader John Paul Szepel who brought us two icons and two hand crosses from the former Nativity of the Holy Virgin Mary Church (Saint Mary's) in Waterbury, CT.  Together we celebrated a short prayer service of Thanksgiving to God for these magnificent gifts. The icons will be on display for the next several weeks so the parishioners might see them more closely before being mounted in the altar/sanctuary - their traditional location. The crosses will also be on display: one is destined for the altar, the second will be used for all of the major processions of the Holy Cross during the calendar year.  Click on the more information link below to view a few photos.
