Archbishop Michaels'  Visit to Our Mission in Potsdam




After the Presanctified Liturgy held at our chapel on Wednesday evening, April 1st, Archbishop Michael gave us the blessing to be named the St. Olympia Orthodox Mission.  Dr. David Ford (shown below), Professor of Church History at Saint Tikhon's Orthodox Theological Seminary, gave a presentation on St. Olympia the Deaconess that included reading a previously untranslated letter written by St. John Chrysostom to St. Olympia while he was in exile. Our gratitude to His Eminence for his love, generosity and graciousness, and also for arranging for Dr. Ford to also be with us. We will have more about our patron saint in forthcoming newsletters.
