Liturgy In The Catacombs

Liturgy in the Catacombs

Due to the construction and the cold weather, the front of the Church had to be covered in plastic this week. Liturgy was held in the old basement. The founders of the parish refer to it as the catacombs because of the poor shape it was in when we first purchased the building. Hence Liturgy in the catacombs. Talk about going back to your roots. Following Liturgy, Father Harrison explained some of the events that occur during the Liturgy that the congregation doesn’t normally see due to the iconastasis. Everything went smoothly and this will be one of those times that we talk about in the future.
