Just like the Israelites of Old, Godís people continue to wander until they find a place where God can dwell in their midst. The need for permanency for the faith community of St. Vladimirís is no different. History speaks clearly about how the Church responds to the need of permanency; throughout the centuries, where ever the Faith spread, the great Founders of the Church established temples where Christ and the Holy Trinity could be worshipped, permanently.
Never was this an easy task. The Lives of the Saints describe challenges upon challenges that the Founders of monasteries and churches were faced with as they gathered the resources to build temples dedicated to God, worthy of heavenly worship.
And Godís blessing on their efforts to build his Kingdom here on earth is evident with the many saints and miracles that have come out of those churches.
It is now our turn, in this time and place, as a response of thanksgiving to the gift of faith given to us, with a faithful acknowledgment that God has visited our community for the past 15 years and has blessed it to continue ó It is now our turn to become the founding saints of a permanent temple dedicated to the worship of the Holy Trinity in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
