Pan-Orthodox Presanctified Liturgy - 03/27/09

On Friday, March 27, Holy Apostles Mission hosted a Pan-Orthodox Presanctified Liturgy with His Grace Bishop TIKHON of Philadelphia as the main celebrant. Holy Apostles, Christ the Saviour (OCA), St. Nicholas (Serbian), and Holy Annunciation (Bulgarian) parishes were all represented. Bishop Tikhon took the time from his busy schedule to be with us and lead us in worship during this midpoint of the Lenten Fast.
