HOUSTON: Sunday of Orthodoxy (Audio)

On Sunday, March 16th, the Orthodox Clergy Association of Greater Houston and Orthodox faithful gathered for Sunday of Orthodoxy Vespers, hosted this year by St George Antiochian Orthodox Church. The pastor of St Jonah of Manchuria Church, Fr John Whiteford, was the guest homilist. As it happened, that morning was also the falling asleep in the Lord of Fr John’s Metroplitan, LAURUS, head of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia; this coincidence is reflected in his homily, “The Reconciliation of the Russian Church.” LISTEN HERE

Following the homily, the Houston area clergy, along with the St Romanos Pan-Orthodox Chorale and the gathered faithful, prayed the Trisagion Prayers for the Departed in memory of Metropolitan LAURUS.
