Saints Constantine and Helen Orthodox Church

Yesterday I attended Divine Liturgy at Saints Constantine and Helen Orthodox Church in Galveston.

The parish was celebrating its 110th anniversary.

It was the first Orthodox Church in Texas and is one of the oldest Orthodox Churches in the United States.

The parish has a very interesting history including: an original endowment and several donations of liturgical items from Tsar-Martyr Nicholas II and a reconsecration of the Church performed by Bishop Tikhon (who later became Patriarch of Moscow and is now commemorated as a Saint in the Russian Church) after the "Great Hurricane" 0f 1900.

More information on this parish can also be found here.
