JOHNSTOWN, PA -- Thanksgiving 2009
It is proper and just to sing to You, to bless You, to praise You, to thank You, to worship You in every place of Your kingdom, for You are God, ineffable, inconceivable, invisible, incomprehensible, ever existing yet ever the same, You and Your only-begotten Son and Your Holy Spirit. You brought us out of non-existence into being and, when we had fallen, You raised us up again, and left nothing undone to lead us to heaven and to bestow upon us Your future kingdom. For all this we give thanks to You and to Your only-begotten Son and Your Holy Spirit, for all that we know and do not know, the manifest and hidden benefits bestowed upon us. (Liturgy Anaphora Prayer)
His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas, the Diocesan Chancery Staff and the members of the Apostolates and ministries of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese extend their greetings to all diocesan faithful and friends for a blessed and joyous celebration of Thanksgiving.
