Festal Liturgy at Church of Santa Elena

Today on the Feast of Sts Peter and Paul, Father Silouan served the first Divine Liturgy in the newly-built church of Santa Elena – Saint Helen – at Little Baguio, Arakan, Cotobato.

The community lives far from paved roads, and materials to build this church had to be brought in at great effort. But, through the generosity of a benefactor and the labor of community members, the building is complete and the Orthodox community of Santa Elena are justifiably proud of their new temple!
