In the Orthodox Christian faith, on the feast day of the prophet Elijah, we bless vehicles in remembrance of Elijah being taken up to Heaven in a fiery chariot.
Beheading of St. John the Baptist
We also remember those who lost their lives on 9.11.2001 with a rememberence service after the Divine Liturgy for the Feast Day of St. John the Baptist.
“Lord God, Lover of Mankind, Bless our God-protected nation, the United States of America, and forgive those who hate and wrong us.” We will never forget! Memory Eternal!
By coming together in our parish communities and holding Memorial Prayer services to honor those lost and gave their lives 18 years ago, we renew our strength to move forward in the face of both old and new challenges, and we come together to uphold the values that have defined our country and our people that we share with the people of this planet. #ssppcarnegie2019#praywithoutceasing#memoryeternal☦️ @ St. Peter and St. Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church
