Presanctified Liturgy with Archbishop Michael - 04/03/19

On Wednesday evening, April 3, 2019 Ss. Peter & Paul's in Bayonne welcomed its diocesan hierarch, Archbishop Michael of New York, for his annual archpastoral visit to the parish. The Archbishop presided at the Liturgy of Pre-Sanctified Gifts, with the parish rector, Fr. Sophrony Royer, and the rector of neighboring St. Mary's, Fr. John Fencik, concelebrating, and with responses sung by choir director Emily Fencik and the Parish Choir. Following the well attended service, parishioners from both Ss. Peter and Paul's and St. Mary's enjoyed a Lenten meal in the church hall downstairs, and had the opportunity to ask the archbishop questions after the meal. Our well-traveled archbishop then departed Bayonne for Ss. Peter & Paul's in Syracuse, New York.
