Feast of St. Herman - 08/09/16

On Tuesday, Aug 9th Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church (Harrisburg, PA) hosted a pan-Orthodox Liturgy for the feast of St. Herman of Alaska. We were especially blessed by a visit from Fr. Michael Oleksa from St. Michael Cathedral in Sitka, Alaska - who preached an inspiring homily about St. Herman's legacy amongst the native peoples of Kodiak as their defender, and advocate.


We also welcomed clergy and faithful from:



Holy Saint Herman, pray to God for us!


The eternal light of Christ our Savior guided you, blessed Father Herman, on your evangelical journey to America to proclaim the Gospel of peace. Now you stand before the throne of glory; intercede for your land and its people: Peace for the world and salvation for our souls! (Kontakion - Tone 3)
