During Fr Martin and Matushka Sarah's travels to Canada and the East Coast, they had the blessing of visiting the Cathedral of St John the Baptist Russian Orthodox Church in Washington DC. This is a beautiful church which was founded by St John of Shanghai and San Francisco during his visits to the nation's capitol to advocate on behalf of his flock in the Phillipines to be allowed entry into the United States.
Fr Martin and Sarah were received with great warmth and love by the clergy and parishioners of St John's. While serving the Divine Liturgy, Fr Martin was honored to give the homily on the Sunday Gospel. That homily may be viewed here.
Should any of us have the opportunity to visit Washington DC... please make the effort to go to the Cathedral of St John the Baptist... you will be richly blessed indeed!
