Grand Opening of the Cathedral of St. Mark of Ephesus

Thanks to our Lord, the parish of St. Mark of Ephesus celebrated the joyous occasion of its Grand Opening (Θυρανοίξια) of its new church and home in Westwood, MA. The feast started with the a hierarchical concelebration presided by His Eminence, Metropolitan Demetrius of America, joined with brotherly love by His Grace, Andronik of Syracuse.

There were clergy and faithful from all over North America who came to celebrate this triumphant occasion for the parish. For over 40 years our Lord has bestowed upon our parish blessing after blessing, and this was confirmed by this joyous occasion. The parish has gone through many struggles but every step of the way God's hand has always sheltered us. We thank all of the faithful who came to celebrate with us.

We thank God for covering us and showing us the way, showing us the True Faith. May St. Mark guide us as we make our confession of faith and may our Lord and Saviour enlighten us so we can increase the blessings He has given us.
