September 17th - Blessing Service of the Environment

 September 1, 2016 has been designated as The Day of the Environment by the Orthodox Church. We, as stewards of the environment are called upon to safeguard our world around us. What better way to do this than ask God’s blessings upon the earth that He created!

The Holy Liturgy begins at 9:00 a.m. with the blessing of one of the nearby rivers following. Next year we’ll once more attempt to do this at Seaside Park.

 

On September 17, 2016 there will be a Pan–Orthodox Liturgy sponsored by the Greater Bridgeport Clergy Association at Three Saints Church in Ansonia and a Blessing Service of the Environment.   Three Saints Church, Ansonia, CT  at 26 Howard Ave, Ansonia, Connecticut 06401-2208. If you have questions- contact the church at  203-735-0317 or the office: 203-735-0117
