Outdoor Shrine of Ss Constantine & Helena

Over the past few years, we've celebrated the Feast of Ss Constantine & Helena, Equal-to-the-Apostles (May 21), in a unique fashion at St George Antiochian Orthodox Church in Houston, TX. We are blessed to have an Outdoor Shrine dedicated to Ss Constantine & Helena; this Shrine that is surrounded by some beautiful landscape and large water fountain is a wonderful addition to the parish community.

Our campus and young adult ministries groups of Greater Houston have gathered at this outdoor shrine for a supplication service to Ss Constantine & Helena on their feastday. It has been a unique experience to worship God and ask intercessions of Ss Constantine & Helena in an outside setting. This experience definitely has that "camp" feel to it, for those who remember their fun youthful days spent at Orthodox summer camps. We'd like to invite all Orthodox in the Houston area, especially our college students and young adults to join us again this year on Monday, May 21 at noon for our Supplication Service.

Enjoy some pictures from previous Supplication Services:
