The Feast of St. John of San Francisco in Maine 2013

His Grace, Bishop Demetrius of Boston visited the mission of St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco in Portland, Maine on its patronal feast day, July 2nd (n.s.). Concelebrating with His Grace were Presbyters Vassily Mihailoff - rector of the mission, John Knox and Andrew Snogren, Hierodeacon Barsanuphius and Deacon Yakov Tseitlin. Fr. George Liadis and Deacon Cyril Mendoza were also visiting.

Several families came up from the Boston area to share in the celebration of the feast. It was the first hierarchical service at the new church site, glory be to God! All traveled afterwards to the Mihailoffs' new home where they had a festive trapeza "under the tent" in the backyard. It was truly a grace-filled day!

Saint Matthew the Evangelist, Jonesboro, Arkansas

Jonesboro is a town located near the Eastern border of Arkansas, with a population of approximately 60,000. From a human standpoint, it’s not the most likely candidate for a traditional Orthodox mission, but for an Orthodox Christian who orders his priorities around Christ and His Church, it makes perfect sense.

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?
