Elevation of the Holy Cross and Parish Picnic - 09/13/15

On Sunday, September 13th the community at Christ the Saviour had a FULL day! We welcomed Fr. John Ealy from Florida as guest concelebrant for the Divine Liturgy, where we also enrolled Timothy Monko into the Catechumenate of the Orthodox Church. At the conclusion of Liturgy we immediately celebrated the Vespers of the Elevation of the Life-Giving Cross. Following Vespers we enjoyed our annual Parish Family Picnic on the church grounds. Author Jane Svitchen from St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church (Steelton), and illustrator Sheena Hisiro (a daughter of our parish, now living NYC), signed copies of their new book "Herman My Love". We also recognized Carl Hisiro (manager) and our parish softball team with the League Championship trophy for the fifth consecutive season. A special thanks to our St. Alexis Toth Men's Club for organizing the picnic for the benefit our entire parish family. Glory to God for His many blessings!
