God Grant the Priest Thomas and Matushka Sarah Many Blessed Years!

Brothers and Sisters in Christ - Glory to Jesus Christ! With sadness and joy we bid Fr. Thomas and Matushka Sarah, farewell. Fr. Thomas and Matushka Sarah came to Protection parish in 2012. During their tenure God blessed this humble Orthodox mission parish mightily. Prior to their arrival, Protection parish stood on the brink of closing as a failed mission. God however deemed it necessary for the sake of an Orthodox Christian witness to Fort Campbell, KY and Clarksville, TN to prevent failure by bringing these blessed Servants of God to labor for the Kingdom of God. The Community has grown numerically and spiritually. At one time renting space in a local church, Protection parish now has a beautiful chapel and facility on six acres of land in which sacrifices and prayers may be offered to God. Fr. Thomas and Matushka Sarah, we will miss you terribly. We know however, that God will continue to employ you mightily at St. Timothy Orthodox Church, Toccoa, GA.
