August 26, 2007: Bishop THOMAS Consecrates Ground for New Church of The Holy Ascension, Valley Forge Pa
On August 26th, His Grace Bishop THOMAS came to visit the parish of The Holy Ascension to bless us and our newly purchased 10 acre property where we plan to build our new Temple. With Sayidna's blessing, we have become the future founders of Holy Ascension. His Grace reminded us of the place which the Church and our mission will continue to have in our lives. Bishop THOMAS continued to encourage us as we help our community embrace the historic Orthodox faith. We look forward to the day when we can ask for His Grace's blessing to begin construction on our blessed land.
