Visit to Train Station - Feast of St. RaphaelOur visit to the train station on the Feast of St. Raphael, November 1, 2008. We discovered (thank you, Sayyidna Basil!) that the holy bishop, Raphael, visited Shreveport in February of 1914, stopping at the train station where he was met by Syrian Orthodox residents of Shreveport.
Blankets for the Homeless - January, 2010In January, 2010, members of St. Nicholas and St. George Greek Orthodox Church gathered in downtown Shreveport to pass out blankets and other items collected by the two churches for the homeless. This was the first outreach effort of the St. Peter the Merciful Orthodox Outreach, comprising members of both churches.
