Lenten Pilgrimage...

On the weekend of March 20-21, members of our church traveled to New Jersey for the exhibit, "Architecture as Icon" at Princeton University, and to attend the Divine Services at St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Howell and Ss. Peter & Paul Church in Manville.

After the Akathist to the Mother of God at 9:00am on Saturday, the group of ten members set off to Princeton, NJ for lunch and the exhibit at the University's Art Museum. Unfortunately, photography was not permitted in the exhibit itself. However, the impression received from the ancient icons, manuscripts, reliquaries, and other artifacts will be lasting.


Following the exhibit, the group journeyed to St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral for a short tour of the church, a stop at the bookstore, and to attend the Saturday evening Vigil service.








Saturday night was spent at Ss. Peter & Paul Church in Manville, NJ, where we attended the Sunday Divine Liturgy and Lenten Mission Vespers later that day at 4:00pm. Following a wonderful meal and fellowship in the parish hall, we set off on our return trip home.


Glory be to God for a safe, enjoyable, and spiritually profitable Lenten pilgrimage!

What a lovely time! I'll have to show Fr. Justin the pics of St.'s Peter and Paul. He loves that church and Fr. James so much. He has very fond memories of his time there.

I went to that exhibit when it was here in Thessaloniki a few months ago. My favorite icons were the ones from Moscow. So intricate. The pilgrimage looks like it was a very big lenten blessing!
