SIOC 20 Years in Middle GA

In honor of our 20th Anniversary, we decided to interview some of the founders and earliest members of our parish.

The goal was to somehow encapsulate the mindset that led to the founding of our mission. One of the “mission statements” we put on our website states: “Like our patron saint, St. Innocent of Alaska, our parish seeks to bring the ancient Christian faith---what believers called “The Way”--- to the greater Macon area in its own language and culture.” This statement encapsulates our past and present efforts and much of what we hope is to come in our future.

The prayer of the Bishop taken from Psalm 80 during the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy summarize our strong hopes for the future. “Look down from heaven, O God, and behold and visit this vine which Thou hast planted with Thy right hand, and establish it.”

A special thanks goes out to Jerome Gratigny who filmed, produced, and edited this short film. May God grant him many years for his tireless effort.
