12-9-06 : Bishop Thomas visits mission station in
The Antiochian Mission Community of Southern Delaware welcomed His Grace, Bishop THOMAS for Saturday Vespers, Sunday Matins and Divine Liturgy on the weekend of December 9th and 10th.
On Sunday morning, Sayidna blessed Jabra Tannous and Joseph Kavchok to serve as Sub-Deacons. A record attendance added to the joy of the weekend. Of the seventy people attending, almost thirty were visitors from Saint Philip, Souderton, Pennsylvania in support of the new Sub-Deacons. Also, two newcomers were welcomed for the first time to our services.
The women of the mission served lenten refreshments after Saturday Vespers; and on Sunday, following the services, all were invited to the home of nearby parishioners for a lenten buffet arranged by the hosts and all the women of the community.
Bishop THOMAS encouraged his enthusiastic listeners to continue their work as evangelists and build up the Church. He also inaugurated a building fund.
Services are held at the Henlopen Grange, 1528 Savannah Road, Lewes, Delaware at least twice a month on Sunday mornings. It's an excellent location with good parking.
