Parish Priest

Reverend Father Cosmin Antonescu

ParinteleEvery journey of our life begins with a calling from God, and it has its fears and unknowns. At the same time this is also full of the excitement of innovation and of the unknown through which God is calling us to identify ourselves and to discover this journey as a gift from Him.
On November 1st, 2014, through the grace and the will of God, I have arrived together with my family, in the midst of the Romanian Orthodox Community from Washington DC. The first reaction that I had was very hard, but at the same time and somewhat expected, especially having known the situation of the Romanian Orthodox Community from here, which I continue to discover and I am trying to understand it day by day. I pray that God will guide our steps towards a blessed future according to His will.
Through the most recent blessing from His Eminence Archbishop Nathaniel, I was called to serve especially to the needs of Saint Andrew Mission in Potomac, Maryland. I thank to the good God for the calling to be your pastor, and I assure you of my total dedication and love.
I ask and invite each of you to join God’s call to support the church’s mission through your charity and love for the neighbor. I encourage you to be active and full of sacrificial love in your involvement.
I thank you for your hospitality, and pray that our good God will bless our thoughts and actions, so that we may do His will in all things. Be the change that you wish to see in the world. Amen!
