Perhaps there is no greater way to pay tribute to the anniversary of this wonderful parish, dedicated to the Holy Great-Martyr and Myrrh-Streamer Demetrios, than to be gathered to commemorate the souls of those who have gone before us. For the foundation of our parishes is truly the sacrifices of the generations who have come before us. And even for this youthful anniversary of ten years, there were oblations made, in the distant past, that have brought this church into being.
