Bishop THOMAS visits St. Philip’s parish in Souderton Pennsylvania
The Saint Philip community was blessed during His Grace's time in eastern Pennsylvania to have Bishop THOMAS with us for several of the Holy Week Services, including the Presanctified Liturgy and Bridegroom Matins. Also, on Great Thursday, he participated in the Foot Washing at the Vesperal Liturgy of Saint Basil, and shared in the reading during the Twelve Gospels Matins. After the fifth Gospel, he carried the Cross to its place in the center of the Church. In a sermon and in his general comments, Sayidna encouraged us to press on and continue the spirit of deepest commitment in our Christian lives forever, as people who know both the Lord's sufferings and power of his risen Life.
