THE HOLY FIRE IS COMING TO ST. GEORGE: “COME YE, TAKE LIGHT FROM THE LIGHT…”

“COME YE, TAKE LIGHT FROM THE LIGHT…”

The Holy Fire that comes miraculously from the Holy Sepulchre on Pascha was brought by airplane from Jerusalem to New York for the first time this year.



The Holy Fire will arrive at St. George, at 6:30 pm this Wednesday, May the 3rd.

We will receive the Holy Fire into the church joyfully at the beginning of Vespers.

This year is the first "official" transportation to the American shores.

Through a grassroots network of pious Orthodox believers (clergy and laity), the reception and distribution of the Holy Fire is spreading across North America.

We encourage you to bring something to keep this miraculous flame alive and protected, for transport to your home to be placed in your icon corner. That involves some planning on your part, possibly using some of kind of lantern, or something to maintain and protect the flame until you can bring it home safely.

Visit HERE for a short video of the miraculous distribution from last year

Visit HERE for a photo gallery from this year. Join us for this very special blessing as we receive the Holy Fire from Jerusalem!


On Sunday, May the 7th, the same Holy Fire will be delivered to St. Mary of Egypt Orthodox Church in Greenwood, IN
