Liturgy in St. Theophan the Recluse, Atlanta GA

With the blessings of His Eminence, Metropolitan Pavlos of America, Fr. Savvas Anastasiou traveled to Atlanta, Georgia in order to serve at the mission of St Theophan the Recluse in Suwannee, GA.

Fr. Savvas arrived in Atlanta on Thursday Dec. 8/20, 2012 and was warmly received by the Volkman family, who host the mission in their home. After visiting some of the faithful on Friday, he served Vespers for the Conception of St. Anna at the mission after which a trapeza was offered for the community.

On Saturday morning Dec 9/22, he celebrated the Divine Liturgy and said the service for a solider going off to war for one of the parishioners who is soon being deployed to Afghanistan. Again, after Liturgy a trapeza was offered at which members of the community acquainted themselves with one another.

Due to the recent entrance into the Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians in America of a great number of faithful, new connections are being made, and old acquaintances who have lost touch for years are reconnecting. Faithful from the Holy Trinity Mission in Albany, GA also attended services.

Now those faithful who previously had to travel hours to the nearest Genuine Orthodox Church, have the opportunity regularly to attend services, to the Glory of God and His Holy Church.

Why do we Call Angels “Saint”?

Q. I noticed that we call the angels Michael and Gabriel "Saint." I thought the title "Saint" was only given to humans who have proven themselves Godly. Do you mind clarifying this for me? Is there a deeper meaning to "Saint" that I am not aware of?
