AKATHIST SERVICE TO THE MOST-HOLY THEOTOKOS IN FRONT OF THE OIL-STREAMING AND MIRACULOUS ICON OF THE MOTHER OF GOD!

TODAY SEPTEMBER 24 AT 5:00 PM

 

 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

As we have announced and witnessed, St. George Orthodox Church (OCA) has been blessed with the Icon of Most-Holy Theotokos on the Iconostasis streaming Oil. A great and humble miracle and blessing for our parish and for those who come and pray here.  The streaming of the Oil began following Great Vespers on the Eve of the Universal Exaltation of the Precious and Life-Giving Cross of Our Lord (September 13).  In consultation with His Eminence Archbishop MICHAEL and with his blessing, we are serving The Akathist Service to The Most-Holy Theotokos everyday this week at 9:00 AM.

Also, we will have the church open every day this week (Monday-Friday) from 8:30 AM to 11:00 AM and from 6:00-8:30 PM for everyone to come and pray before the Icon of the Mother of God.  We will be serving the Paraklesis Service to the Mother of God every night at 7:00 PM.

I encourage all of us to come to the services and pray to The Mother of God that through Her Holy Prayers and Precious Omophorion, God may strengthen us, comfort us, bless us and guide us to continue doing His Will and His Work of the Gospel and of the Church!

Through the Prayers of the Most-Holy Theotokos, may God continue  to watch over you, guide you and protect you, your families and all of the clergy and faithful of our parishes.

MOST-HOLY THEOTOKOS, SAVE US!
