Holy Cross Orthodox Church

Fr. Gregory Mathewes-Green is retiring as an active priest after being pastor of Holy Cross Antiochian Orthodox Church for 25 years. During this time the parish brought its current home and sprung off three other parishes.

Holy Cross is one of my homes away from home.  When I'm there, the only reason that I know that I am not in heaven is because I have a cold or some other pain.  The services are definitely heavenly.  "Everybody is in the choir" there but there is no pressure to sing if one does not wish to do so.

Fr. Gregory was holding a class and I attended it since I wanted to hear what he had to say.  After Vespers he was asked to bless a car and I was present for it.
