Feast of the Entry of the Theotokos into the Temple
Feast of the Entry into the Temple of the Theotokos

On November 21/ December 4, the Holy Church celebrates the feast of the Theotokos Into the Temple, one of the twelve great feasts of the Church.

One of the remarkable features of this feast is that for the first time, we hear the Irmosoi of the Nativity sung in church, as katavasia on feast days.  Thus the Church gradually accustoms us to the coming of this wonderful holy day.

What made this feast more joyful this year, was that Vladyka, with the blessing of Metropolitan Nicholas and the Synod, awarded our Seminary professor, Father John Boddecker, with the gold cross, for his service to the Seminary and the monastery. 

Also, the missionary priest in Grenada, Hieromonk Ambrose, was awarded with the nabedrinik.  Fr. Ambrose is spending some time in the monastery to practice serving and to have a spiritual rest from his labors.

Congratulations to both these laborers in the Lord’s vineyard.
