2017 DISTINGUISHED DIOCESAN BENEFACTORS

As the days of summer fly by, our Distinguished Diocesan Benefactors continue to provide vital financial support to ministries throughout the diocese. By offering assistance to our seminarians, mission parishes, and struggling older parishes, the strength and vitality of our local churches are being nurtured. To date during 2017, DDBs have contributed over $69,000 out of their dedication and love for the church.  See the “honor roll” of DDBs here >

NEW BRUNSWICK NJ: A NEW ERA OF OUTREACH

Saturday, 1 July 2017, was the occasion of an historic event in the life of the Diocese of New York and New Jersey: the ordination of Sub-Deacon Samuel Davis, of Somerset NJ, to the Holy Diaconate. While diaconal ordinations are not necessarily historic, Deacon Samuel is the first African-American to be ordained to this office in the history of the Diocese, and he is leading the planting and development of Saint Simon of Cyrene Orthodox Mission in New Brunswick NJ, an inner-city mission seeking to reach out to African-Americans and Hispanics with the light of Christ’s Gospel in Holy Orthodoxy.



TRENTON NJ: Archpastoral Visit on Parish Feast-Day & Anniversary

Saint Vladimir Orthodox Church in Trenton NJ celebrated its patronal Feast-Day and 102nd anniversary on Saturday, 15 July 2017.  The festivities commenced with a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy with Archbishop Michael, presiding.  Serving with His Eminence were: Father Volodymyr Chaikivskyi (Parish Rector), Father Paul Shafran (Pastor Emeritus, retired), Father Joseph Lickwar (Diocesan Chancellor), and numerous other diocesan clergy.  At the conclusion of the liturgy the sizable crowd of clergy, parishioners, and friends made a procession around the outside of the church with the icon of Saint Vladimir, and then enjoyed a cocktail hour and luncheon at the parish social hall next door.
