Archpastoral Visitation of His Grace, Bishop Michael - 11/28/10

On November 27-28, 2010 our faithful were filled with great joy, as our beloved Vladika Michael, Bishop of New York and the Diocese of New York and New Jersey visited our parish with his first archpastoral visitation. His Grace was present at Great Vespers Saturday night and celebrated a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy following morning. On both services he delivered homilies that were inspiring as well as full of pastoral love.


In celebrating the Liturgy, the parish rector, Rev. Igor Kseniuk was joined by visiting Protopresbyter Daniel Hubiak and Protodeacon Michael Sochka. Stephen Wasilewski, Parish Council President and Christopher Bygonaise, member of our church choir were tonsured into the order of Readers during the Liturgy.


At the conclusion of the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy the faithful gathered for lunch and fellowship in the Church Hall. Glory to God for a truly wonderful visit from our beloved Hierarch. Eis Polla Eti Despota!
