Patronal Feast Day of Saint Lawrence
With great joy last Sunday, the parish of Saint Lawrence the Archdeacon received His Grace Bishop Andonios of Phasiane, Chancellor of the Greek Archdiocese, for the community's patronal feast. In attendance with His Grace was the Very Reverend Father George Jweinat, Archimandrite Damaskinos of the Ecumenical Throne, and Deacon Panagiotis Papazafiropoulos, Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministries for the Direct Archdiocesan District. During divine liturgy, with the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America, His Grace Andonios elevated Deacon Lazarus Adams to the rank of Archdeacon. Axios! Axios! Axios! Following the festal procession and agape brunch, His Grace toured the church grounds, Saint Lawrence Academy (k-8), and Awakenings Bookstore.
