On Sunday, Sept. 20, Father Silouan served the Divine Liturgy in the Cebuano language for the feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos. Over thirty people came to confession and Holy Communion.
At previous celebrations of the Divine Liturgy here, visiting chanters sang the responses. Now for the first time the faithful sang the hymns and responses of the Liturgy themselves.
Father Silouan congratulates the faithful on the feast.
