His Eminence, Archbishop Michael Visits St. John's.......

We lovingly welcomed our dear Vladika, His Eminence, Archbishop Michael to St. John’s Church on Saturday, November 3 and Sunday the 4th. Services included Great Vespers on Saturday, November 3rd at 6:00 p.m. On Sunday morning, Vladika was presented with a bouquet of seasonal flowers by three little adorable parishioners of St. John’s at the front door, and a bread was presented to him by the president of the board of trustees. Vladika was then formally greeted with joy by Fr. Igor in the church nave.

 

The Hierarchical Divine Liturgy was followed by a lunch in the church hall, and all those present enjoyed a pleasant event. Visits by His Eminence is always a blessing to our parish and to all those parishes and events he visits throughout the year with his very busy schedule. We pray that God will grant Vladika Many Years to continue his tireless and devoted service to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and to our diocese and the churchgoers who love him. Pictures of his visit are in the Photo Gallery.
