Veneration of a Holy Relic: Hieromartyr Blaise of Sebaste

Join us in Houston for a wonderful experience: Vespers and veneration of the holy relic of Hieromartyr Blaise (Vlassios) of Sebaste.

On Thursday, February 10th at 6:30p at the Menil Byzantine Fresco Chapel Museum, Orthodox Christians in the Houston area are invited to participate in a Vespers service commemorating the Hieromartyr Blaise of Sebate and venerate his holy relic.

Hieromartyr Blaise of Sebaste

Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral hosts services at the Menil Byzantine Fresco Chapel Museum on the 2nd Thursday of each month.  St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church received a holy relic of St. Blaise from His Grace, Bishop BASIL of Wichita, KS and had an icon commissioned to house the holy relic.

Hieromartyr Blaise (Vlassios) was a bishop of Sebaste (modern day Armenia) in the 4th century.  He is one of the most-venerated holy healers in both the East and the West. He is called upon for protection from wild beasts, and for the healing of every kind of ailment.

The life of St. Blaise can be found HERE.
