Celebrating the New Saint Porphyrios

On Sunday, my Byzantine music teacher, Kostas Karagounis, came up so that we could be among the first to hymn and honor the Church's newest saint, St. Porphyrios. We chanted from one of the services that has already been composed in his honor in our little chapel dedicated to St. Athanasius the Athonite and St. Tryphon. Pres. Pelagia and the kids came over.
Afterwards, my teacher came to the house for a bit, and the kids instantly jumped all over him, as you can see in the photo above.

Here are a couple other recent photos of the kids piled on top of one another.
