The Romanian Orthodox Church in the United States and Canada was formed, by the clerical and lay representatives of the parishes of which it is composed at the Church Congress, meeting in Detroit, Michigan, on April 25, 1929, as a Missionary Episcopate, subject canonically to the Holy Synod of the Romanian Orthodox Church.

“Precupetii Vechi” Church, with the wake of All Saints, has celebrated in 2003, 230 years of documentary attestation. Situated at the intersection of Mihail Eminescu Street, Toamnei and Precupetii Vechi Street, nearby the monument of our greatest patriot Tudor Vladimirescu, this holy place of worship, which has existed for two centuries, has fulfilled its purpose by enlightening and caressing generations of people living in Bucharest which showed their gratitude, as well as they could, by contributing to the restoration and renovation that were needed during the time.

The Sunday of All Saints
(First Sunday after Pentecost)

About the Feast

This commemoration pious honours all the Saints, the friends of God, for they are keepers of God's commandments, shining examples of virtue, and benefactors of mankind. Of course, we honour the known Saints especially on their own day of the year, but, since many Saints are unknown, and their number has increased with time, and will continue to increase until the end of time, the Church has appointed that once a year a common commemoration be made of all the Saints. This is the feast that the Church celebrate every first sunday after Pentecost.
In this celebration, then, we reverently honour and call blessed all the Righteous, the Prophets, Apostles, Martyrs, Confessors, Shepherds, Teachers, and Holy Monastics, both men and women alike, known and unknown, who have been added to the choirs of the Saints and shall be added, from the time of Adam until the end of the world, who have been perfected in piety and have glorified God by their holy lives. All these, as well as the orders of the Angels, and especially our most holy Lady and Queen, the Ever-virgin Mother of God Mary, do we honour today, setting their life before us as an example of virtue, and entreating them to intercede in our behalf with God, Whose grace and boundless mercy be with us all. Amen.
