At long, long last, here are the photos from our feast day Liturgy for the Holy Unmercenaries Cosmas and Damian back on July 1. Our bishop, Metropolitan Ignatios, was supposed to come, but he fell ill with a bad cold and was unable. So we celebrated Liturgy with two archimandrites and my friend, Dn. Gabriel.
The was a great group of friends chanting together for the Liturgy.
Here we are the Little Entrance.
Blessing the reader of the epistle.
The deacon prepares to read the Gospel from the bishop's throne.
Pelagia's sister, Kh. Makrina, was visiting, along with her son Symeon, who, despite not knowing Greek, very ably assisted in the altar. Here he is leading the procession for the Great Entrance.
Fr. Athanasios giving the homily.
At the end of the Liturgy, we also blessed the water for the first of the month.
Having begun at 7:00, we ended around 11:00, and then enjoyed sitting outside with some refreshments.
