Feast of SS Peter and Paul - 07/12/11

The first service in the parish hall was served on the eve of the feast of the holy apostles SS Peter and Paul.  Due a terrible storm earlier in the day, there was no electricity to the church property and when the service started it was actually quite hot and humid.  But what a blessing when people thought to themselves, "it's good that they didn't cancel services anyway" because half way into the service, the electricity and AC were restored!  Bishop Peter announced that he would be serving the Divine Liturgy the next day in camp and therefore he congratulated all of those celebrating their namesday, especially our Pyotr Ivanovich for all that he does for the church.  Afterwards, many people commented on what a cozy and prayerful atmosphere they found it to be in our "temporary" church.
