 Todays Sunday Snapshot is of St Nicholas Cathedral (FB) in Seattle.  The Cathedral celebrated it’s Patronal Feast and 80th Anniversary of its founding this past December 6/19, 2012 with Metropolitan Hilarion and Bishop Theodosy Presiding.  Thank you to Parish Photographer Sergei Kalfov for sharing these photos.  I just wish he didn’t take so many good photos it is hard to know which to include in the post!  Please take a look at the Cathedral’s  Facebook Page to enjoy more.  Also please keep the newly Ordained Priest Athanasius of St Silouan’s Parish in Walla Walla, Washington in your prayers, especially for the next 40 days.

The truth of things revealed thee to thy flock as a rule of faith, a model of meekness, and a teacher of temperance.
