Lift High The Cross

Today we have three causes for celebration it is the Sunday of Pentacost when the Church was established, it marks two years of full service schedules as Saint Basil the Great Orthodox Mission, and it is the day we raise the Orthodox Cross of Christ our Saviour at the future site of Saint Basil the Great Orthodox Parish.

A visit from the Dean

Father Alexander from St. Symeon Orthodox Church in Birmingham, Alabama visited the Marietta, GA mission of St. Basil the Great joining for Saturday vespers and Sunday's Divine Liturgy. It was nice to have the appointed Dean of the diocese of the south in our midst as he concelebrated the Divine Liturgy with our own Fr. Paul. 

During the agape meal which follows the service Fr. Alexander spoke with the members of the mission about what it means to be a mission, the typical path for mission growth, and his own experience over 30 years taking St. Symeon's from humble beginnings to its present state.
