Icon of St. Silouan the Athonite There is a big distinction between merely believing that God exists, seeing Him in nature or in the Scriptures, and knowing the Lord by the Holy Spirit.St. Silouan the Athonite
Troparion for St. Silouan

By prayer thou didst receive Christ for thy teacher in the way of humility, and the Spirit bore witness to salvation in thy heart. Wherefore all peoples called unto hope, rejoice in this day of thy memorial, O sacred Father Silouan. Pray unto Christ our God for the salvation of our souls.

View Slideshow

Bishop BASIL visited our congregation for the very first time on 7 November 2005, and he presided at the service of Great Vespers for the Feast of the Synaxis of the Holy Archangels. Afterwards we had a delightful banquet, and many people stayed to enjoy the food and fellowship. This was a great time in the life of our Orthodox Christian community.
