At the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy on Sunday, July 22, Fr. Alexander and clergy processed to the completely full parking lot for the annual blessing of cars in honor of the feast of the Prophet Elijah on the 20th of July.
During the Liturgy the Chicago area received a heavy downpour of rain. The rain lightened up and ceased just as the blessing began.
A prayer was said invoking God's blessings upon the vehicles and all who travel in them and the cards were blessed with holy water. Holy Prophet Elljah pray for us! Glory to God!
