Happy Anniversary to a "New" Western Rite Church

Fr. Nicholas, Subdeacon Jerome, and Reader Kevin at Matins in their new building.

Today is the one-year anniversary of the dedication of the new church building that houses St. Gregory the Great Orthodox Church (part of the AWRV) in Washington, D.C. This evening, they will mark the occasion by having Vespers at 7:30 p.m. EST. This Sunday, May 11, they will celebrate Mass using the propers for the Anniversary of Dedication. Purchasing any building in the Washington metro area necessarily tests any congregation's determination and sense of financial sacrifice, even in the present market. God has rewarded them richly for both.

On St. Gregory's main website, you can see pictures of the building's transformation from this to this.

We're sending our best wishes and congratulations to Fr. Nicholas Alford, Kh. Rebecca, and all his wonderful parishoners. Feel free to send yours, too, or better yet, drop by and worship the Lord in our nation's capital. The building is located at 1443 Euclid St., NW in Washington, DC. Here's a map for 1443 Euclid St., NW, Washington, D.C.
