Guest Homilist and Eritrean/Ethiopian Fellowship - 11/10/19

On Sunday, November 10th our parish family of Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church (Harrisburg) welcomed guest homilist Dr. Albert Rossi from St. Vladimir Seminary. On Saturday he led a Pan-Orthodox Teen Retreat, and stayed with us for the weekend. His inspiring homily encouraged us to draw closer to Christ and to each other through stillness and the ascetic practices of our Holy Church. 

Following Divine Liturgy our community enjoyed its Annual Eritrean/Ethiopian Fellowship. We were blessed to share in the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of two of the many cultures that constitute our ethnically diverse parish family.  A special thanks to those who prepared and served the meal, as well as those that prepared the special coffee and tea that was enjoyed by all - thank you!
