Patron Feast of Saints Constantine and Helen Cathedral in Chicago

Sts. Constantine and Helen Cathedral in Chicago honored its patron saints in the past several days. This year, as always, Saints Constantine and Helen were celebrated with great reverence. The celebration started on Sunday, May 18, 2014, with the Divine Liturgy. H. E. Archbishop Nicolae spoke at the end of the service about the life and mission of the Holy Emperors. His Eminence also reminded the faithful about the veneration in the Romanian Patriarchate of the Holy Martyrs of the Brancoveanu family and about the great procession with their relics that is to take place in Romania. The banquet that followed the Divine Liturgy also included a special Romanian cultural program prepared by the children and youth groups of the Cathedral.

On Wednesday, May 21, the Feast of Sts. Constantine and Helen, the Divine Liturgy was celebrated by H. E. Archbishop Nicolae together with the Cathedral clergy and other Romanian Orthodox priests from the Chicago area. In his sermon, His Eminence emphasized the fact that Saint Constantine understood very well his calling from Christ our Lord, that he had a Christian perspective on ruling his empire, and that he gave many favorable laws for Christians, through which he consolidated the beginning of a Christian Empire.

Sts. Constantine and Helen Cathedral in Chicago was founded in 2003 through the desire of Romanian Orthodox Christians to have an Orthodox Cathedral in this city. Last year (2013), the Cathedral celebrated its tenth Anniversary.
