By order of the emperor, the military officer Maximinus was sent to Tyana to deal with Christianity, which then had spread widely throughout Cappadocia. Orestes was among the first brought to trial to Maximinus. He bravely and openly confessed his faith in the Crucified and Risen Lord, Jesus Christ.

November 24: Bishop Paul’s Visit and Ordination Luncheon

Bishop Paul will visit St Paul November 21–24. The primary objective of His Grace’s visit is to ordain three men to the Holy Deaconate—two are from Holy Trinity, Daniel Bassett and Luke Freeman, and one is from St Elizabeth parish, Craig Jarrell. To welcome Bishop Paul and celebrate this blessed event we are preparing a festive luncheon after Liturgy on November 24. There is a sign-up sheet in Archangel Michael Hall for those who would like to contribute food for the luncheon. It will be a joyous celebration!
