As the Prophets saw, as the Apostles taught, as the Church has received, as the Teachers express in dogma, as the inhabited world understands together with them, as grace illumines, as the truth makes clear, as error has been banished, as wisdom makes bold to declare, as Christ has assured, so we think, so we speak, so we preach, honoring Christ our true God, and his Saints, in words, in writings, in thoughts, in sacrifices, in churches, in icons, worshipping and revering the One as God and Lord, and honoring them because of their common Lord as those who are close to him and serve him, and making to them relative veneration. This is the faith of the Apostles; this is the faith of the Fathers; this is the faith of the Orthodox.

Homilist: Rev. Fr. Gregory Edwards St. Sava Parish Jackson Guests Speaker: Dr. Frank Papatheofanis, President & Founder, St. Katherine College

We will gather as clergy and laity, young and older, to celebrate the restoration of icons to their rightful place…we will gather to celebrate anew the Triumph or Orthodoxy…we will gather to celebrate the newest accredited Orthodox Christian College in America, St. Katherine College!
