On Friday, June 7/20 and Saturday, June 8/21, the Transfer of the Relics of the Great-Martyr Theodore the General, Fr. Savvas Anastasiou visited the mission of St. John of Kronstadt in Bunnell, FL.

On Friday evening, after a meal with the congregation, they served the Ninth Hour, Vespers, Matins, and First Hour. On Saturday morning, the Third and Sixth Hour and the Divine Liturgy.

In his sermon, Fr.
