Admiral Ammen, President Grant, and the Uncreated Light:
Context for our Historic Chapel
A Talk by Dr. Geraldine Fagan
Now available as a two-part video series on our YouTube channel:
Dr. Geraldine Fagan is a parishioner at Holy Apostles Orthodox Church in Beltsville, Maryland. She graduated in Russian and German from Oxford University in 1995, and is a writer and editor.
In 2009 our parish was gifted an historic chapel surrounded by two acres of beautiful land. Since then we have been restoring the chapel, and planning the construction of the new parish hall, which would enable us to move from our current location at Twin Chimneys Office Park.
We are approaching the groundbreaking for construction of the new Parish Hall.
Everywhere he went he either oversaw the building of churches or supported the same with his attention and prayers... He wrote about the godly work of building churches:
"In building churches here on earth, we create for ourselves eternal habitations in heaven."
