On October 17th & 18th we were blessed to have His Eminence, our Archbishop MARK with us for an Archpastoral visit. As always, we are encouraged by his words and for his love and care for our community. On Sunday, special recognition was given to parishioner Paul Beard (and his wife Judy) for his expertise and hard work in building our Church, and His Eminence presented him with a gramota for his labors. Also, Fr Seraphim was given the Gold Cross in recognition of his faithfulness to the priestly ministry. After Liturgy, we all gathered in the Parish Hall for a celebration. It was a wonderful weekend for all! Glory be to God for His goodness!
