We Praise Thee series

Akathist to St. Arseny of Winnipeg
and Hymns for the Services to St. Arseny of Winnipeg
by Archpriest Lawrence R. Farley
with
Archbishop Arseny: a Vita
by Priest John Hainsworth

"We Praise Thee" Number 5
As in the case of many saints, St. Arseny was known by the people to be a saint and is being venerated as such even before his official glorification/canonisation. We in Canada have a special and precious connection with Saint Arseny of Winnipeg. He is one of ours, as well as being one of God’s. Get to know St. Arseny, ask for his prayers and rely on his love. Like all true saints, he is worth getting to know! St. Arseny was born in the mid-nineteenth century in south Russia, and came to the new world in 1902, working as a tireless missionary in the northeastern United States, and then in Winnipeg. He helped found St. Tikhon’s monastery and orphanage in Pennsylvania, and later founded the Pastoral School that became St. Tikhon’s Seminary. He was consecrated as bishop for Canada, and because of his gifted preaching he was popularly known as “the Canadian Chrysostom”.
Archbishop Arseny: a vita, by Fr. John Hainsworth, is a result of research by the Archdiocesan Canonisation Committee struck by the Archdiocese of Canada with the blessing of the Holy Synod of Bishops of the OCA, as part of the formal work towards the glorification of Archbishop Arseny.

Akathist: Glory to the God Who Works Wonder
by Archpriest Lawrence R. Farley

A New Akathist for
Saint Herman of Alaska
by Archpriest Lawrence R. Farley

"We Praise Thee" Number 4
At the Vespers for both Pascha and Pentecost, the churches ring with the question of the Psalmist, “Who is so great a God as our God? You are the God who works wonders!” In this Akathist, in the footsteps of the Tri-une God, all the wonders that our God has done, beginning from His work of making all things and culminating in His final work of making all things new are remembered, making it a celebration of His miracles. Our hearts swell at the thought of all that our God has done throughout the ages.

"We Praise Thee" Number 5
A new Akathist for Saint Herman of Alaska having its roots in a desire to acknowledge—beyond the standard Akathist lauding his monastic achievements—the loving protection and ceaseless advocacy of Saint Herman on behalf of his new Alaskan spiritual children, against their exploitation by the Russian fur-traders; to present in greater fullness the glory of his labours in North America.
