On Pentecost Sunday, June 15th, St. Athanasius Orthodox Mission celebrated its first Sunday Liturgy on our Land on Chrisman Mill Road. About 80 people braved the heat (and cicada bugs) to pray with us on top of the hill. We served the Divine Liturgy at 9:30am. This was followed by a picnic and the Vespers of Pentecost which include the Kneeling Prayers of Pentecost. The next morning, at a much cooler 7am, we celebrated a Divine Liturgy for Holy Spirit Day, which is an important commemoration on our Orthodox calendar.
Stay tuned for other events out on our Land throughout the coming months. Please keep our parish in prayer as we draw closer to August 6th (the Feast of Transfiguration), our goal for paying off our Land through our Land Campaign!
Please also note that, for the duration of the summer, all Sunday Liturgies will be served at 9:30am and in our chapel on Main Street in Nicholasville.
