For those who were not able to make it to our Lenten Retreat this past weekend, I have posted the audio for the retreat. For some reason there was a little bit of noise on the microphone but not too bad.
Suffering Hell for the Sake of Heaven Part 1
This year we had our first annual Sunday of Orthodoxy Pan-Orthodox Vespers. We were joined by Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know our fellow Orthodox Christians in Middle Georgia. Next year they will be hosting us!
Congratulations to the newly illuminated handmaiden of God, Dympthna! May God grant her, her sponsors, and her family Many years!
On Saturday, January 7th our Subdeacon Columba Croft was ordained to the Holy Diaconate at St. John the Wonderworker Church in Atlanta. Dn. Columba will be our first active deacon since 2010 so we are very thankful. May God grant Dn. Columba and Mat. Molly Many years of service to Christ and His Church!

We were blessed to have a visit from our Archbishop, Alexander who served the Great Blessing of the Water on the Eve of Theophany. It was a short visit but very edifying. On the Sunday after Theophany, we Blessed the Ocmulgee at Amerson Waterworks Park. The weather, service, food, and fellowship were fantastic!
