Feast Day of Kimisis tis Theotokou in Clearwater, FL 2016

To the glory of our God and the joy of our faithful, His Eminence, Metropolitan Demetrius of America recently visited our parish of the Dormition of the Theotokos Church in Clearwater, Florida. He came specifically to celebrate the Feast Day of our parish and, as our archpastor, to meet with clergy and parishioners to discuss matters of mutual concern.

Adding to our joy, at the hierarchical Divine Liturgy on Sunday, August 15/28, His Eminence received into the ranks of our clergy as an addition to our parish Presbyter Fr. Demetrios Adamopoulos. He and Presbytera Vasiliki began coming to our parish last Holy and Great Monday evening, desiring to confess the True Orthodox Christian Confession of Faith. On this Feast of the Dormition, His Eminence, Metropolitan Demetrius, heard Fr. Demetrios’s proclamation and confession of Faith, prayed over him, and received him as priest. Fr. Demetrios gave glory to God for hearing his prayers from his youth and placing him in His True Church.

To Fr. Demetrios: Axios!

To all our True Christian brethren everywhere: Many years for the Dormition and Translation into the Heavens of our Common Mother and Lady, the Mother of our God!
