Pilgrimage Weekend 2019

Pilgrimage Weekend 2019

October 5th—6th

We invite everyone to join us for the 2019 Pilgrimage Weekend. His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion, First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad, will preside at the Divine Services. Visiting clergy are invited to concelebrate at the hierarchal services.

After Sunday morning’s Divine Liturgy, a festive banquet will be held in the spacious hall of the Holy Spirit Orthodox Church in Huntington. All are welcome to attend the banquet.

Many come to Pilgrimage Weekend every year from all over the country to join with the monks and with one another in liturgical worship and fellowship. Over the years, friendships have formed amongst fellow pilgrims, thus making Pilgrimage Weekend a reunion for old friends, a spiritually enriching experience for newcomers, and most importantly an occasion to partake of the Holy Mysteries and to strengthen one’s faith.

Church Construction & Fundraising Beginning Now!

Our existing church was built for a brotherhood of eight, at a time when visitors were few and far between. Now our brotherhood has grown to almost thirty, and there is rarely a day without numerous guests and pilgrims praying with us during the divine services. While this is certainly a tremendous blessing, there nevertheless continue to be many men who wish to come here to consecrate their lives to Christ and His Holy Church as monastics—but we simply do not have the space to accept them. The construction of this new, much larger church will allow our brotherhood to continue to grow and thrive with the help and blessing of Almighty God.

On the glorious feast of the Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ (Thursday, June 6th) our beloved friend and benefactor Maurice Sill departed this life at the age of 94, only two days after his birthday. On the morning of the Feast, he attended the Divine Liturgy at his home parish of Christ the Saviour in Wayne, West Virginia. He confessed, received Holy Communion, and was in very good spirits. Later, while walking on a nature trail with his grandson, he reposed peacefully in the Lord.
