Sermon of Metropolitan Demetrius delivered at the Saint Nicholas Mission, Las Vegas, NV Oct. 1, 2017

The weekend of Sept. 30 to Oct. 1 (n.s.), His Eminence Metropolitan Demetrius travelled to Las Vegas, Nevada, to visit the St. Nicholas Mission and V. Rev. Archpriest Elias Warnke, the guardian of the Holy Myrrh-Streaming Icon of St. Nicholas.

Hierodeacon Benedict accompanied His Eminence. The parish in Las Vegas gathered for Saturday evening service and Liturgy on Sunday morning. Ten parishioners from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, also visited for the weekend.

The Icon of St. Nicholas continues to stream myrrh continually. Bowls next to the Icon catch the drips from the analoy cover. Parishioners venerated the Holy Icon and were anointed by His Eminence.

After the service all gathered for a festive meal sharing in the joy of Our Saviour. Everyone benefitted from edifying discussions with His Eminence and Father Elias.

We hope that all who view this will find some spiritual benefit…
