Here is a link to the small news story if you are interested~~~http://fauquiernow.com/page.cfm/article/st-patrick-fire
I wonder if it was itentinally set, cause it looks like just a exterior wood strcture without electric?
Anyway good luck to then and hope the eventually are suessfull in building the Church~i will pray.
Almost forgot, i wnated to ask~~"St. patrick"----he is a celebrated orthodox saint???
Yes, St. Patrick is definitely an EO saint, but he is mostly assoc. with Western churches since he was the missionary to Ireland. IIRC, this particular parish was a WR parish so it seems rather appropriate to take St. Patrick as their patron. There are many pre-schism saints from the British Isles. (St. David, St. Brendan, St. Columba, St. Aiden, etc. etc. etc.)http://orthodoxengland.org.uk/zliturgics.htm
I think there are many saints are who more acknowledge or revered within certain jurisdictions and/or countries than in others. Do many Serbians revere St. Nektarios? Or do the Greeks have many feast days for the new martyrs of Russia? It happens. That doesn't mean they're not Orthodox.
