Celebration of Sunday Orthodoxy
Celebration of Sunday of Orthodoxy
On the first Sunday of Great Lent, St. Basil’s Orthodox Church, Watervliet, NY, had the privilege of hosting the Sunday of Orthodoxy Vespers.  Each year on the Sundays of Great Lent, the St. Andrew’s Brotherhood Clergy of the Greater Capital District, under the leadership of Archpriest Igor Burdikoff, gathers to serve Sunday Vespers at the various Orthodox churches in the area. 
Participating clergy and faithful from the greater capital district extending from the Albany area, south to Hudson, NY, north to South Glens Falls, NY, and east to Pittsfield, MA., attended this service.
Father Theodore Roupas, pastor of St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Schenectady, gave an inspiring and moving homily as he spoke about icons, our need to be rooted in the Orthodox Faith and our call to witness to the Truth.
After the service everyone gathered together for fellowship and a Lenten meal in the Church Center.
