10th Anniversary Report

by frjonah on January 24, 2013


By the mercy of God, we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the founding of Christ the Savior Church on Dec. 1st and 2nd.  His Grace Bishop George joined us, as well as a multitude of clergy and faithful.  In addition to His Grace, it was a special blessing for us to have many of our past rectors serving with us for this historic anniversary.

For several months prior to the anniversary celebration, a significant beautification effort was launched at Christ the Savior parish, the result of which is that the interior of the church is now completely adorned with images of Christ and the saints.  Following the greeting of Bishop George in anticipation of the vigil on Saturday evening, His Grace performed the Order of Sanctification of Holy Icons, officially blessing all of the new icons.  The vigil was served by Hieromonk Cyprian DuRant, the first rector of the parish.  Divine Liturgy on Sunday was served by His Grace Bishop George along with a numerous clergy, both local and non-local.  At the small entrance, parish rector Priest Jonah Campbell was awarded the right to wear the purple skufia.  At the conclusion of the liturgy, the parish was given a diocesan gramota in acknowledgement of our historic anniversary.

The atmosphere of the services was especially joyous and festive thanks to the beautiful chanting of our parish choir, and the presence of so many past and present friends underscored the familial atmosphere of our humble parish.  Glory to God Who has brought us to this historic point!  May He continue to direct our steps and draw us ever closer to Himself.
