Historic First Divine Liturgy To Be Served at St. Basil’s Mission on July 13

Priest Michael StorozukYesterday morning we received an encouraging email from Preist Michael Storozuk, rector of St. Paul the Apostle Orthodox Church in Denison, TX.  He informed us that after hearing our story and seeing our website, he felt convicted to come and serve the Divine Liturgy here at St. Basil’s in Weatherford.  We’re honored, blessed and very excited to have Fr. Michael come and visit us for what we understand to be the first Divine Liturgy ever served in the Weatherford area.

As of this morning (yes, when it rains it pours) we have several inquirers, so with Nick and my family coming as well, we have the potential for a packed house.  Hey, 250sq/ft can be packed pretty quickly!

The Holy EucharistSo on Wednesday, July 12 at 7:00 am Fr. Michael will be here to lead us in the celebration of the Divine Liturgy.  He will also be here for Vespers the evening before at 5:00 pm.  If you are in the region, or are still a passive observer in the local area waiting for the right time to come, this will be an excellent opportunity to witness the fullness and epicenter of the Orthodox Christian Faith – the Body and Blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We are so thankful, once again, for the organic and practical way that people are showing their support for the mission and are participating in the spread of Orthodoxy in America.
