On Saturday April 1, 2017, Orthodox faithful gathered at Descent of the Holy Spirit Romanian Orthodox Church in Elkins Park PA., for the service of Holy Unction. The service was celebrated by Fr. Adrian Grigoras, rector of the host parish, Fr. Milorad Orlic of St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church, Protosingelos Chesarie Bertea and Fr. Dimitire Musta, both from New York City.
Following the service, Frs. Chesarie and Dimitire gave homilies in Romanian; Fr. Milorad in English. All three emphasized that all of us are in need of healing, and that the Great Lent is a time of intensified therapy in our becoming by God's Grace all that God is by nature. After the anointing of the faithful, a fellowship meal was enjoyed by all.
