Today our Church celebrated the feast of the Holy Martyr Hierarchs who sacrificed themselves for the safety of their flock during the tragic events of the Asia Minor Catastrophe at Smyrna in September 1922- St. Chrysostom, Metropolitan of Smyrna and other four Bishops. May we have their blessing!
As well, we served a memorial service for those innocent victims- men, women and children- who lost their lives during this period. Historians estimate their numbers to be in the hundreds of thousands. May God rest their souls.
