Announcement: Mission Closing
Beginning in mid-February, Fr. Paul and Matushka Gabrielle will be serving
the newly launched OCA mission in Marietta. We are very grateful for the
year they have spent with us and wish them great blessings from our Lord in
this new assignment.
Fr. Alexander Fecanin, the dean of the Atlanta area churches of the Diocese
of the South, has recommended that we give the mission effort a period of rest,
and that we take the opportunity to attend established parishes for the time being.
We are very grateful to have had the opportunity to bring Orthodox Christianity
to the city of Gainesville, and while we regret the lack of growth and the
necessity of ceasing the effort, we know that our labor has not been wasted
in God’s economy.
Mission Furniture Available
The wooden liturgical furniture items listed below were used for four years in Divine
Liturgy services by Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Mission, OCA, in Gainesville GA.
Our Mission used an activities building of another church, and could only set up our
worship space for Liturgy on Sundays, hence the furniture is designed for ad hoc use.

faces from which to hang icons of Christ and the Theotokos. Cabinet dimensions
are 31.5” wide, 19.5” deep, 76.5” tall on wheels (73.5” tall without wheels). Each
royal door panel is 16.5” wide and 58.25” tall. A wood panel with a cloth curtain
swings independently behind each royal door; the curtains may need to be replaced.

gold altar cloth pictured, and red altar cloths folded on top in picture.
