Thank you to our co-chairs, Norma Khoury and Elaine Khoury and all who helped plan and participated in our “Weekend of Celebrations” last weekend. There were many hours of preparation to get the Cathedral ready and to plan the events of the weekend. Without the entire effort of all those who labored and sacrificed, it would never have happened. Even until the day people arrived, the final touches were being completed.
It was a beautiful weekend and all of our hierarchs and out of town guests, including our special guest, His Eminence Metropolitan HILARION of the Russian Orthodox Church, expressed their thanks to our parish for a wonderful weekend.
Thank you to Khourieh Destinie Winn and Sub-deacon Andre Christoforides for taking the photos in our gallery. You can see more of Khourieh Destinie's photos via this link:
