Parish's Tomb Moves to Maine - 08/09/15

Saints Peter & Paul Church has finally found a new home for their Tomb: in Bangor, Maine. The Tomb, used liturgically in the celebrations of Holy Week, was constructed for the church many decades ago, but was retired recently.

After many inquiries, we found that Christ the Savior Mission in Maine would gladly accept it, if only we could find a way to deliver it.

Three members of the Brotherhood of SS. Peter & Paul volunteered to make the 8 hour trip in Dr. Richard Comshaw’s truck, affectionately dubbed “Goliath.” Rick, with Paul Leonowich and David Zavednak set it in place and then participated in the Divine Liturgy.

Fr. John Pawelchak thanked them for their service and the faithful of SS. Peter & Paul for their support. He reported, “I am having a parishioner put a piece of plywood on the Tomb and we'll also use it for the Table of Oblation for now. Our Altar Table and the other are just plywood on saw horses.”
