Memory Eternal Mr. George Walko

George E. Walko was a Reader, chanted Divine Service, made handmade crosses and gave them away to bishops, priests, deacons, and laity all over the world. He was a personal friend of thousands of people. He searched their personal ancestry. He was a personal friend to local Government, city and neighborhood people. Beloved of the faithful of St. Andrew Eastern Orthodox Church, and most especially a friend, and mentor to V. Rev. Fr. Emilian Hutnyan. He was also a church carpenter and maintenance worker who carved many lecterns and even the Holy Altar when he worked for four summer months with his son Gregory. In 2004 that Holy Altar was consecrated by His Beatitude, Metropolitan Herman, His Beatitude, Metropolitan Theodosius, His Eminence, Archbishop Job, and some 45 men in the Altar with St. Tikhon’s Seminary Choir singing the responses to the Consecration Service. Reader George also spent two years studying Liturgical Theology at a Reader’s Workshop whereby he was tonsured a Reader at the age of 83. He will be dearly missed. Memory Eternal!

Dormition of the Virgin Mary - Most Holy Theotokos, Save Us!

The Dormition of the Most-Holy Theotokos - Thursday August 14th at 6:00 pm.  Vesperal Divine Liturgy and the blessing of flowers.

"And when this miricale had been done, ther apostles carried the couch, and laid down her precious and holy body in Gethsemane in a new tomb. And, behold, a perfume of sweet savor came forth out of the holy sepulcher of our Lady the Mother of God; and for three days the voices of invisible angels were heard glorifying Christ our God, who had been born of her.  And when the third day was ended, the voices were no longer heard; and from that time forth all knew that her spotless and precious body had been trnsferred to paradise"
