Blessings from Father Haros
Dear brothers and sisters of Florence, Two weekends ago, I was blessed to preside over what I pray becomes an annual event for our city. As part of our celebration for the Feast of Epiphany, the Transfiguration of Our Savior Greek Orthodox Church gathered with several of our fellow citizens of Florence, at Oakdale Lake for the Inaugural Blessing of Florence.
It was a blessing and privilege for me personally, and for the entire Greek Orthodox community, to be allowed to ask God’s blessings upon our city. I wish to thank the Florence News Journal for assisting us in publicizing this blessed event.
I look forward to celebrating with more of our brothers and sisters of Florence for this annual blessing for many years. See you next year! May 2016 be a blessed year for our city and each of your families. Rev. Father Athanasios C Haros, pastor Transfiguration of Our Savior Greek Orthodox Church of Florence www.GoFlorence.org
