When you were posting all of these photos of the last phases of building your church and the final move in I was too busy to comment. But now, I am able to come back to this wonderful time in the history of your parish and rejoice with you yet again and offer some words of excitement for all you've accomplished, and for how God has blessed you.
Yay! Glory be to God! What wonderful, beautiful work you've all done....
Blessings

Lovely. Could you provide subtitles of what's happening for those of us who aren't Greek Orthodox? :)
