Many Changes

This has been a very exciting year for St John Cassian Chapel. On Holy Pentecost Rdr Justinian Burnett was ordained to the Diaconate by Metropolitan Hilarion at Holy Trinity Church in Mebane, NC. He is attached as clergy at the Monastery of the Glorious Ascension (Resaca, GA), and has been assigned to serve at the Chapel by the monastery’s abbot, Archimandrite Maximos (Weimar).

The Chapel has also been blessed to have Priest Joseph Gagliano, who has been appointed as a Chaplain at the Monastery of the Glorious Ascesnion, to be serving at the Chapel on a bi-weekly basis. This allows us to have Divine Liturgy at least two Sundays a month (which are listed on the parish calendar). Having Fr Joseph and his family with us has been a great pleasure!

We are in the midst of two projects. The first, creating new altar cloths, chalice veils, and other sacred coverings for the chapel, as well as some new sticharia for the altar servers. The other is looking for a building or for property on which to construct a building. We have been very fortunate to be in the space set aside by Phillip and Ita Burnett in their home for the last three years, but, we are now reaching the point where we are outgrowing the space. If you would like to help us out with either project, please make use of the PayPal donation button on the Be A Benefactor page of our website.
