Elkins Park, PA – Parishioners from Annunciation Greek Orthodox church rallied in their parking lot following liturgy services. They participated in a drive-by celebration for Reverend Father John L. Johns, on the occasion of Father’s Day.
Father Johns blessed drivers with Holy water as they drove by honking and waving. “We love you, Father,” yelled a parishioner. Bags of Koliva were distributed to parishioners who reached out of their cars during the drive-by.
The event was a complete surprise for Father Johns, who beamed upon exiting the church and seeing the line of vehicles. “Thank you to my beloved parish. We have such a loving and welcoming community. It’s a real blessing to serve them. They make it easy,” said Father Johns.
